Download Caller ID application for PC

Download Caller ID application for PC

Reading on https://customer.comcast.com/help-and-support/phone/download-the-universal-caller-id-to-pc-app/, I there is no link to download the caller ID application. I searched for "xfinity caller ID" and found a link. But when I clock on the download button it always says there was a download error. I have tried IE and Firefox.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

That is the one that gives the error: A download error occurred, Try to download again."

well that was interesting. Read through the source on that 2nd link that ended with /callerid/ and found that comcast is calling defunct/extinct versions in the 3.x range when current range is 16. Apparently they 'write' the windows version in adoble AIR to distribute an app for AIR to use on the local PC.

 

http://get.adobe.com/air/  <== can download air from there, not sure if that will then let the link work. The adobe script on comcast web page 

media2.comcast.net/anon.comcastonline2/xplat/downloads/ucid/ComcastCallerID.air

will then let you download that file ending with air. 

 

There is just so much wrong with the site I would not install any of it until they fix it. Adobe products are subject weekly to what is called zero-day attacks where hackers find a new way to take over your pc or install ransom ware etc. Perhaps they have a smart phone app that can send you caller id or just get it on your tv screen?

Re: Download Caller ID application for PC

Today Comcast went down for the 4th time this month. So thanks for the info but I think I'll switch back to AT&T + DirectTV.
