Since my bundle does include voice mail which I have never used.....obtained new phone...answering machine will not operate on this phone unless the voice mail is disengaged from Comcast.

Or, you can go into the voice settings in your Email account set the Voice mail to answer after say 9 rings. Then set your answer phone to pick it up after 4 rings or whatever suits, that way all your calls will go to the answer phone....

Most people who have a answering machine want the VM disconnected, or when they are on the phone, incoming calls will still go to voice mail, which tney don't want to deal with.
Most with answering machines don't want to still deal with VM and if any calls went to VM while they were on the phone. If they never check the VM, then incoming calls are lost in VM which they never retrive.

Yes, that works works for me too. Don't get that many home phone calls either. In fact all the ringers are off because 90% of calls are bogus. & we're on the no-call list?
Really like the ease of just looking @ the answering machine a couple times a day to see if there is a blinking light.

I'd like to go the other way ... disable the answering machine at home and use comcast's voicemail. I think the phone can hand FSK voicemail features, but I can't find info on the comcast site for how to connect to it from the phone.

Since last post have enabled some calling features. Call blocking is awesome! Especially anonymous. Having never had these features before didn't know what we were missing. Bogus call count has dropped precipitously & love being able to add specific numbers to the blocked call list. Able to it all online instead of fumbling around on the phone keypad - great!
