Xfi phone line limits

My current comcast modem has 4 phone line ports of which I use 3. The xFi modem only has two ports. Is there a way to make it work with 3 phone lines?

No, there isn’t but you can keep phone service on the modem (EMTA) you have and have internet service on the new gateway. Just need a 2 way splitter and a couple of pieces of cable and split the devices, when you call in

Thanks Andrew,

 

You andser dropped off.

 

Two way split the cable in to both modems. Keep phone lines on old modem, internet on new modem?
