removing a blocked number from my phone

How do I remove a blocked number on my voice preferences? I clicke on the X to remove the block and a message appeared asking me if I really wanted to remove the block. I clicked on Ok but nothing happened. This happened to me last fall too and I was able to finally get help from Comcast but I'd like to know what to do so I don't have to call them. Thanks

Re: removing a blocked number from my phone

still waiting for a reply. I already called Comcast and the agent told me to use my home phone and not the computer and to dial   *80. I did so and received a message that call screening was off. But when I checked again on the computer the number is still listed as blocked. I tried again to remove it by clicking the "x" and received the same message I received before:"Are you sure you want to delete this number from call blocking?" I clicked ok again  and nothing happened. When will I hear from Comast?? I've waited for five hours now!!

There could be a back-end issue with the VOIP server systems....   if it doesn't replicate and remove the block tonight, you should call into Comcast and register another trouble ticket...this time ask for Level 2 support though....

thanks Ray. I'll call them tomorrow. Much appreciated. My 88 year old neighbor thought I was mad at her and chose to block her number. i assured her I didn't and would work to correct the problem asap. Rich

Re: removing a blocked number from my phone

Hi Ray,

Just talked with another Comcast agent in the Phillipines. She gave me instructions and I could underestand heer. Here is what she told me to do:

"use home phone and dial star*60 and when you hang up the phone will ring and give you options. Using the phone press #3 to remove a blocked number and press the number on the phone you want removed. There are other options also. Just listen and choose to do such things as add a number to your block list and press 6 to get a list of all the numbers in your blocked list. You can  remove the block of any number you want. That's all there is to it.
