power outage loss of triple play telephone

Can a UPS supply be used with the xfinity TC8305C and base phone plug into it, so that phone service is not lost on the loss of power from the utility.

Yes, but I like to keep one hardwired phone in the house as well for an emergency, that will make your UPS power last longer if you don't plug in the wireless base.

If the power is down to the main comcast lines it really doesnt matter because the phone will not work anyways

The majortiy of times the electric utility will loose power to the house without affecting Comcast Phone Service. Usually Comcast goes down without my electric service being out. If you don't want to rely on a cellphone I reccommend a UPS over a gateway battery it's a better value tha a $40 battery including shipping.
