Text messaging through comcast home phone.

I had them to change my plan to another year. They did so I could be paying less for my service ,and they changed my phone # in the process with out me knowing . So my text on the computer doesn't work has anyone had this problem in the past?

Re: Text messaging through comcast home phone.

Based on what I am reading in your post, your phone number actually changed from what it was before.  What you will need to do is through your web browser login to your Comcast account, go to My Services, and then select Xfinity Voice.  On the screen that takes you to, there should be an option/link to click to Set Up Text Messaging.  I believe you will have to do that as I do recall before I could text through my home phone number that I had to do this to get text messaging setup on my home phone number.

 

Hope this helps
