After installing the new modem I lost phone service. Cannot get a phone dial. Also tried to plug phone directly into the modem phone jack which did not help. 

The two lights on the modem for the phone lines to not light up. Am I missing something???

Call into Comcast and ask for the EMTA side of the gateway to be provisioned.....  There are 2 sides to a gateway, data and EMTA ( phone service ) and BOTH need to be activated.
