Activation on Xfinity without Phone

I have a Netgear modem connecting to Xfinity.  I have a new SBV3202 that I want to replace the Netgear with.  Per instruction from Xfinity, I installed their app on my phone….and assume it would allow me to ‘activate’ the SBV3202 after I swap out the Netgear.

However, I am in a ‘dead’ cell service area….phone only works thru wifi. 

Can I activate the SBV3202 without the xfinity app?

You can call xfinity can give them the mac id to activate it. Tough to do without cell service through. 

Kind of  caught a little bit because you either need the app to activate or to contact them


Thanks - I got thru it without the App...but with the usual frustration of calling Xfinity.
