I have performed and tested the swap to a new Comcast modem, but forgot to test the phone. Turns out this week was very peaceful as no sales calls.
but I do pay for and need the phone service.
I have performed the activation step with success, rebooted both phone and modem, moved the phone to the modem tel1 direct connect, had Comcast tech on chat working (with little details) but no dial tone. I also tried tel2 and walked the outside tel cable to ensure there was no dog re-wiring done. I do not have a old style phone so I can only test with a wireless newer type that has a base station that plugs into the tel port..
have a Comcast tech set for a visit this Saturday but still would like to resolve and call off the truck roll.
any help would be great thanks
I can check to make sure the phone is provisioned to the new modem on the backend. In order to assist you, please send me a private message including your first and last name as it appears on your bill. To send a private message click on my name "ComcastChe", then click send a message.
Thought I would post a follow up as it is resolved
first three days after modem swap - modem was not provisioned for voice
Contacted Comcast to validate provision
also started to trouble shoot by moving phone to modem
I moved phone back but plugged it into wrong jack (there are two)
So it appeared that at mid week there was still a problem
end of week
Comcast tech showed up and found dial tone at modem
tested the phone no dial tone
changed to other jack - dial tone
I should have snapped a photo of how it was before I tested
non active jack is now marked
There was a Comcast issue at the beginning that I wish I had been told about and that a adjustment was made so that I could have tested it.
But I do have phone service and the tech was great as he tested other stuff that I mentioned.
Now I can get those sales calls again during dinner 😤
Thanks for the follow-up @Fedge. I am glad the tech was able to easily identify the problem as well as check for the other concerns you had. If you need anything in the future, feel free to reach out to us. Thanks for being a loyal customer.
