My original post was #8, now 2 years later same issue exists...Do you think Comcast cares about this? Yes, Comcast upped the limit to EXACTLY 25 so what. The person above that suggested changing numbers if you need more than 25 is out of touch. I wanted to say "Stupid". These companies that call use machines to change numbers very rapidly. 25 is not enough. Unlimited is best. Also, dont be fooled by claims to the contrary, many of these calls get through because of backdoor agreements Comcast has with these companies. Why else would I receive caller id's that say 00000 or Unavailable. I have turned on the "Block Anonymous Callers. Everything that is not a proper caller ID phone number should be blocked. EVERYTHING! Yet calls get through...why?

Folks, People have been asking Comcast for years to increase the block limit beyond 12 numbers. There is NO technical reason for the 12 number limitation. Since Comcast is staffed by many incompatent people this small change has NEVER been implemented. They just dont care about what you want or with staying current to what their customers need. There are many reasons to block numbers and telemarketers are getting smart about cycling numbers etc. Those that suggest getting on the do not call list are right. But those that suggest you not give out your number are just out of touch with the reality of how numbers are found and shared. I have 26 blocked numbers, I am on the DNC and still calls from the same places get through because they come from new numbers. You can do some things: 1) Call the Comcast corporate office in PA and ask for executive customer service. Voice your complaint there and you might have a shot at change 2) Get a free google voice number and forward you comcast number there. Google voice allows for more call screening 3) Get an OOMA account and forward your calls there. There is $9.95 a month charge but you will get unlimited blocking Its a pity that Comcast cares little for the needs of there customers.
