Hi, Does anyone have the Comcast phone thing? I have the internet and the cable, but i was wondering if I should get the phone as well, I heard from one of my friends that it is worth it, but i wanted more than one opinion on it.
Thanks!

From what I can tell it seems like a good deal.  We can't get cable for anything so I am sorry I can't be more help.

Are you happy with your cable and internet from Comcast?  If not, I wouldn't try the phone with them.  We had Comcast for our internet and cable and had nothing but problems.  We now have satellite and DSL through AT&T, our phone is through them too, so we get a bundle price.  Maybe Comcast is better in your area.  With my business, I need to be online all the time and our internet would always go down.  We have had satellite & DSL for internet for almost a year now and it has only gone down once!  Also, cable is a shared network, so when lots of people get on their (Comcast) internet, it gets slow.  It isn't that way with DSL, DSL is a dedicated network, so you won't have that problem.  Well, that is a little off topic, probably didn't help you much.  Have a great day anyway!

Hi, My internet and cable are fine, well it is quite pricey, and for the phone I have AT&T/SBC whatever it;s called now and it became quite high in the past few months.  Anyway, thanks for the help!

I have all 3.  There are pros and cons. 

Pros:  One bill, easy to monitor, cheeper through comcast the more you have

Cons:  When comcast shuts down, everything shuts down including the telephone.

Having said that, the phone doesn't shut down that often.  I would say that it has happened to me maybe 2 times.  Thank God for the Cellular.


Hope that this helps.

Hi, Oh wow it all shuts down--not good,  well I'm sure it doens't do that all the time and I do have a cell phone if it did happen, anyway so with all 3 combined my bill would be lower? Ok I'll have to think about it, because I'm paying over $60 for my phone I have now plus cable and internet so I want something lower. Ok thanks for the help

We have WOW cable for our cable, internet and phone. It's probably the same or similar to Comcast. We find it is a little bit cheaper, but as someone else pointed out with Comcast, when they are down everything is down. It doesn't happen often. I think we pay about $120 a month for everything.

I pay $130 for the bundle, it is cheaper if you bundle 3 or more services.  Even cheaper if you add your cell phone to it, but I have a 2-year contract with Sprint, so I can't do that yet.

We have high speed Yahoo! DSL (6 megs/second - fastest you can get), DISH Network w/ STARZ pack and AT&T unlimited calling plan (local & zone) w/ caller id, call waiting, three way calling and enhanced voicemail and God only knows what else - LOL!  My DH has to have all the bells & whistles!

You should call them and see what kind of bundle you can get it if you add your internet or cell phone to it, it might drop your price dramatically!

I hope I have been of some help.
