Activate Voicemail

I recently ported a new number to my comcast voice.  The no answer response for voicemails states that "The number xxx-xxx-xxx this voicebox is unavailable".  What would be my action to make voicemail available?

Hey there, @user_hpzb4l. Have you gotten the chance to review our article for activating your voicemail? There are a few different prompts to dial based on what you hear. There are also options to make changes to your voicemail through our email and voice portal under the Voice tab at the top after you're logged in.

I have tried to set up/activating voicemail using the home phone, but the message is essentailly the same. "voicemail unavailable".   No other prompts or interaction follows.

I'm having the same problem, same message. *99 or *82 + number, same message "the number ***-***-**** this mailbox is currently unavailable ". Really? I know that. That's why I'm calling!  If it wasn't do very frustrating it would be funny.

I moved to a new home and transferred my service but Xfinity said I couldn't port my old home phone number so they gave me a new number

Calling customersupportby phone doesnt work, I tried many times to reach a live person but nope. I get a text to link up to have a message chat with a live person.

Multiple online chats with multiple service agents that last at least 40 minutes each over several days and they all said they couldn't help me and have elevate my issue up to level 3 (?) and I'd get a call in 60 to 90 minutes. Never got a call! Went to Xfinity store for help. Clerk i spoke with was not in a good mood and was very rude. He said I needed a technician to come to my home to fix the issue. We'll, I knew that wasn't correct. When I disagreed,  he insisted I did need a home visit, I said fine. He booked it. Guy came, heard my issue and said that's something I can't fix and they should know that (really!?) He said to call for customer assistance. Back to square one.

I've been on this merry go round now for 13 days and I'm ready to cry and then cancel all my service.

If anyone can help me I would be so so grateful🙏 HELP!
