How to Receive Voicemail Notifications on Mobile Phones after Xfinity Connect App Retirement
I saw a few folks ask how it would be possible to receive notifications on your mobile device whenever new voicemail messages are left for you on your home phone. This is currently a feature of the Xfinity Connect App, which is being retired.
Comcast supports sending voicemail notifications to any e-mail address. This can be configured at connect.xfinity.com/voice by visiting Settings and then Voicemail Notifications in the main settings menu. For full instructions on how to configure this, click here for a helpful FAQ.
Many mobile phone providers support receiving E-mail via SMS Text Messages through what is called an E-mail Gateway. As an example, if you have Xfinity Mobile service and your mobile number is (234) 555-1234, you can send an e-mail to email@example.com and it will be received as a text message on your phone!
What this means is that you can input your phone number and E-mail Gateway as an E-mail notification address following the instructions in the FAQ I linked above. Every time you receive a voicemail to your home phone, you will then receive a text message on your mobile phone!
Here is a list of popular phone providers and their e-mail gateways. The format to use is always your mobile number followed by @ and then your E-mail Gateway:
Xfinity Mobile: firstname.lastname@example.org
Boost Mobile: email@example.com
Consumer Cellular: firstname.lastname@example.org
Google Fi (Project Fi): email@example.com
