Re: Landlines

Yes, I am one who has a home phone.  I think I shoud have gotten a "kit" to learn how to hook up my phone with my PC, I do not know how I can get messages on my home answering system.  I need some help.

Your home phone is connected to an EMTA/Gateway device and does not get "hooked-up" to your PC.  To use a home answering machine instead of the Comcast Voicemail feature you will need to set the Comcast number of rings HIGHER than that of your personal home answering machine.     Please consult the manual of your home answering system on how to connect it to your phone.
