cant call out on mobile app

Hello, I have the ComcastBusiness app on my phone and I can't get it to call out. I have Remote Office turned on, and I have the ability to receive calls, but when I go to make a call it has me click on the new number, and the says "the number you dialed is not a working number" or "your call cannot be completed at this time. try again later." It is HIGHLY inconvenient as I am working from home due to covid. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

@Comcast_DevinB yes! all of those things are correct. and the only way that it would allow me to receive calls was to turn on Remote Office...

That's definitely not good. Ok, in this instance let's create a service ticket for your account so we can put it in front of the correct people for a fix. Could you send us a direct message?


To send a direct message:


Please only send a direct message when requested by an official employee--sending a chat when not requested may result in the chat being lost given the high volume of chat requests received daily.

  • Ensure you are first signed in, then you will see an icon at the top right of your page. Click that or follow this link:
  • From there, click the 'New Message' icon. In the 'To' field, type ‘Comcast Business’.
  • Type your message in the text area that appears at the bottom of the window and hit enter to send. An official employee, such as myself or whoever is first available, will respond.

We ask that you please include your name, the business name on the account, the phone number for the account, and the service address alongside your inquiry so we can best assist.
