Voicemail on answering machine

Voicemail on answering machine

Since going back to comcast I can only access voicemail through computer. How do I get my answering machine to pick up messages?

Re: Voicemail on answering machine

You have to set the answering machine for a lower number of rings than the voice mail.  As an example if the voice mail answers after the 4th ring, then the answering machine will need to be set for 3 rings.

 

On the Comcast voice mail, you can also listen to messages by dialing *99 on your home phone and follow the prompts, or on the Xfinity mobile app for smart phones and tablets.  Going to the computer is not the only way to listen to voice mail.
