Countries Included in Voice Unlimited Plan?

Does anyone know where to find a list of all of the countries that are included for free for international calling in the Xfinity Voice Unlimited Plan?  

 

Recent marketing emails from Xfinity as well as the Web page at http://www.xfinity.com/international-voice do not have updated or complete information regarding this issue.  That Web page states "Now, the XFINITY Voice Unlimited plan lets you call places like Canada, China, India, Mexico, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Puerto Rico and more – at no additional cost."   

 

"like"..."and more"...are vague and an actual list of the countries doesn't seem to be available.  (The "See international calling rates" link on that page also does not lead to a relevant answer for this question.)

Until those web pages are updated, you should call into Comcast @ 1-800-266-2278 or 1-800-934-6489 and ask for the current listings of countries for your plan.

Re: Countries Included in Voice Unlimited Plan?

Thanks, already tried that.  The offshore customer service agent I reached first gave me an incorrect answer; then demonstrated unfamiliarity with the product/marketing announcements that led me to the question in the first place; then gave me the same countries that appear on the Web site with the vague language "call places like"..."and more".  

I have lost interest at this point in spending time pursuing a correct, relevant answer from Comcast and will just use the other solution I've been using for my international VOIP calls (Skype).  I did not have time to wait on hold for a supervisor to handle the question correctly, as I'd already been on the phone for half an hour at that point.  Comcast customer service, as usual.

My grandson is stationed on an aircraft carrier off Japan. His mom sent me his international number. Can I text or call him? Is there any additional charge? And I don't know how to do it. It's a long number and when I tried to call it I got a beep beep beep. I have the unlimited bundle.

Hi luckylee46567,  by following this link http://www.xfinity.com/international-voice?showiro=yes and clicking  the link on the page " See international calling rates" you will be able to see rates calling to all of the available countries.  Lastly here is how to call to Japan:

 

  1. First dial 011, the U.S. exit code.
  2. Next dial 81, the country code for Japan.
  3. Then dial the area code (1–5 digits — please see a sample calling code list below)
  4. and finally the phone number (4–7 digits).

Thank you

Phil,

(Is that short for Phillippines?) Actually that does not answer the question as to "and more". If you go to that link provided it takes you to the call rates. In the Unlimited Voice plan it states that you can call to South Korea for free, when you go to the link you provided it states that it is $.08 per minute. 

 

Thanks for not understanding the question and then being misleading.

Hi dcwood03, I can answer your questions/concerns on behalf of ComcastPhill. "Phil" is actually his name, and he is a great team member.

 

The link he shared: https://www.xfinity.com/international-voice?showiro=yes  does show: 

 

"With the XFINITY Voice Unlimited plan, you can make calls to nearly half the world, at home or on the go with your smartphone or tablet.

Save on your wireless plan when you call Canada, China, India, Mexico, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and Puerto Rico – at no additional cost."

 

Very recently we added South Korea as an "included" or free to call that country. In fact, China, India, Mexico, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore were all recently added as included.

 

Thank you for bringing this discrepancy on our website to our attention and I will be happy to pass along this feedback to our web team who posts this information to our website.

What’s confusing and misleading about that link is the text "With the XFINITY Voice Unlimited plan, you can make calls to nearly half the world…" Yet it lists only a few countries as being included at no extra charge – not anywhere close to half the world. Comcast product team should just list the companies included at no cost without all the marketing hyperbole.

Will the U.K. and Germany be added to covered free calling countries soon? They are not 3rd world and have a very established and efficient communications systems in place so is there a valid reason why you wouldn’t want to include these countries or perhaps others in addition in the EU?

Can you please raise a ticket to update your website?

 

It is quite sad that the website is still not updated (many months after the original question was posted)

I still cannot see a webpage which states clearly which countries are included under the XFINITY Voice Unlimited plan at no extra cost.

 

To put it in simple terms - which countries can I call free / no additional charge if I have subscribed to the XFINITY Voice Unlimited unlimited plan.

 

I tried looking at multiple links on the xfinity / comcast website -  but could not find it.
