I want to disable call waiting, for more than just the current call. How do I go about doing this?

You can dial *70 before making an outgoing call to disable call waiting

But *70 only works for the current call. I want to disable it forever. How do I do that?

To permanently disable call waiting please call Comcast support. That is the only way.

What if I want to disable it in anticipation of an incoming call?
I know some of the non-digital phone service providers have a command you can punch to disable it for a while and then another command that you can punch to re-able it.
Finally, when I was with Vonage, I could actually log in to my account online and change the call-waiting and call forwarding settings there.
Xfinity needs to get on the stick.

#43 turns Call Waiting OFF. *43 turns Call Waiting ON. *70 is on a per call basis, #43 turns it off until you turn it back on with *43.

#43 does not work with unlimited select. I have called numerous times and can't get anyone to disable call waiting. I am at the end of my rope here. Someone should be able to fix this.

I've been trying to disable call waiting by working with Comcasts tech support. They've told me that my account reflects that the option is disabled however, I still can hear the beep while on the phone. We were round and round and round until I finally stopped into a Comcast office. Apparently this is an issue with their modems. Comcast would "flip the switch" to remove Call Waiting but if the model ever had to be reset, the option would reinstall. To fix this I was given another modem, a newer model. Apparently, they fixed this bug with this new modem because the call waiting feature is no longer on my line.

I see the above post is rather recent. I too have been having issues with having called SEVERAL employees. This is hindering my ability to do a work at home job. I just recently got my service, as in October. One would hope that we would have a New modem being as we were told so at the time of pickup. Having read the other comments I wondered if others had stayed with Comcast and had success at turning off call waiting any other way or is it off to pick up a new modem?
Also my problem is not with me making calls, I would be recieving calls and need to Not have call waiting sending others to my voice mail.
So where is the code for that?

Got a new modem today, the tech there said that NO ONE did anything and again reassured us that we were getting what we needed...
Newsflash the call waiting still works
