Xfinity Connect App Not Sending Notifications On Incoming Calls to iPhone or iPad.

Xfinity Connect App Not Sending Notifications On Incoming Calls to iPhone or iPad.

This has been an ongoing issue for approx 1 yr. currently have iOS 12.1, iPhone XS Max, iPad 2018. I am the primary account holder, wife is unrestricted secondary with all toggles on.

We both have the same model iPhone, same iOS version, same configuration.

Wife receives notification banners on incoming calls and voicemails.

I only receive notification banners about voicemails.

I had this same issue with previous iPhone 6S Plus. Wife had same iPhone model and had no issues.

It did work with my iPhone 6S Plus and 2017 iPad (I no longer have) for a couple of months after not working for several months previously, then stopped working again and has not worked since.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Xfinity connect App several times to no avail, and the app is properly configured to receive notifications.

As an IT/IS expert I have tried everything that could be tried. My opinion is that the problem must be on the front-end servers at Comcast, related to my account.

I sometimes receive improtant incoming calls at home when I'm out, so to be able to receive incoming call notifications is invaluable. I hope an advanced tech at Comcast will contact me so this can be resolved, as I see many people have the same issue.

I am unable to receive incoming notifications on my new updated iPad and updated iPhone, both running IOS 12.1.1. My old iPads, running IOS 9.3 do receive incoming call notifications.  All settings are the same, on the old and new iPad also the iPhone.  I forwarded my landline calls to the iPhone but now do not see the call differences between a cell call and a land line call.  If I am in the app when the landline rings, then it will ring the iPad as it is supposed to do.  Have called Comcast, but no one can fix this.

I’m having the same issue. iPhone X, iOS 12.1.2.
I am also an IT Specialist and can’t figure out why it’s not working.

I was informed by Comcast Advanced Repair a few months ago that the problem lies in the Voice2Go feature and that programmers are working on it but no idea when it will be fixed. This affects the primary account user since they are the only one who has Voice2Go on the home phone line, and is why secondary users (like my wife) can receive notifications since secondary users don't have Voice2Go on the primary phone line.

I, too, am having this issue. My iPad will get these, but my iPhone will not. This has been the case with several iPhones going on several years now. Not sure what else to do. Any help, Comcast?
