Unsuccessful getting phone features turned off.

Acct Number: 8498 **** **** ****

Address: 13301 **** ******  WA

Phone Number: 253-853-****

 

Can you please help me. I've been unsuccessful in doing the following..........I would like to turn off Voicemail, Caller ID, Call Waiting and Call Forwarding. They say it will take a few days but I've been trying for a while now with no success. 

 

Thank You

Re: Unsuccessful getting phone features turned off

Kind of incredible, but these features are turned on by default, and there is no user interface to change them. I wanted to use my regular answering machine, so I needed to turn off voice mail. Took Comcast a few calls and several days altogether to get the job done. They seemed to regard it as a peculiar request.

Thanks for trying. The people from Comcast I talk to over the phone seem to not understand Engish and are able to barely read from a script. Comcast should feel ashamed treating their Customers this way just to be able to spend 2.00 an hour Customer Service. I think I'll have no problem with a Class Actiom Suit for them failing to follow through on providing their service. They need to be knocked down a size or 2. They think they're untouchable due to their size, lobbying dollars and congressional donations. They aren't too big to fail, unlike they think they are.
