Cox Mobile bring your own device FAQs

Your questions answered

BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device. At Cox Mobile, you can keep the device you love when you switch.

If your current phone is unlocked and compatible with the Cox Mobile network, you can transfer your mobile service. Use the compatibility checker to confirm.

Yes, you can keep your phone number when switching to Cox Mobile. We accept phone numbers from all carriers. Do not cancel service with your current carrier until you’ve successfully transferred your phone number to Cox Mobile. To transfer your phone number to Cox Mobile, you’ll need account information from your previous carrier, including your account number and a transfer PIN.

You can bring all versions of iPhone 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, SE 2nd Gen (2020), and SE 3rd Gen (2022) models as well as select Samsung, TCL, and Google Pixel devices. Enter your phone’s IMEI number into our compatibility checker to see if your phone can work on the Cox Mobile network.

IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity. Your device’s IMEI is a unique 15-digit number that identifies the device on a mobile network. It is the fastest, most accurate way for us to determine if your device is compatible with Cox’s network and whether it is locked to a different carrier’s network.

For most devices, the IMEI number can be located by following the steps below.

From your device’s home screen:
 

  • Select “Settings”

  • Select "General"

  • Select "About"

  • Scroll down to the IMEI, ESN or MEID number

Not all phones are made to work on all networks. Carriers can use different network technology. When a phone is made for use on one carrier, it may not be compatible with the technology used on another.

Even if you’re device is compatible on our network, we need to make sure it is eligible to switch to our network. The most likely cause of ineligibility is because your phone is in locked status and will need to be unlocked before switching carriers.

A phone is considered locked when it is tied to the carrier it was purchased from, and may not be used at a different carrier. Phones may be unlocked once the phone has been fully paid for. Check with your current carrier if you're unsure.

A Cox Mobile SIM card will be sent to your house in order to activate your phone on the Cox Mobile network. Billing for your line(s) will begin when your SIM card is activated.

Cox Mobile currently supports the following eSIM devices: iPhone 14 series. Cox will eventually support additional eSIM devices.  

  • Please enter your Device IMEI to check if your phone is compatible or visit a Cox Mobile store.

  • Complete a back up – For iPhones use iCloud or iTunes to back up your device.

  • If using an Android device, please remove/delete the Google Account prior to activating the phone. Not doing so will require the Google account credentials of the previous user (where applicable).

  • Turn your phone off and then back on after you insert the Cox Mobile SIM Card.

  • Activate your device over a Wi-Fi network.
