Built to bring you together
Make your tools make sense
Learn about the equipment you need to keep your home phone service running strong.
To use all your Cox Voice features, make sure your handset supports DECT 6.0 and features like Call waiting. DECT 6.0 comes with tons of perks, like:
DECT 6.0 gives you more range without using more power, so it’s as good on calls as it is on costs.
Hear your friends like they’re in the same room, even from across the country.
Chat with friends, knowing no one else is listening.
Take your calls to new places with better range on the latest phone system.
Zero network interference
No interference means no interruptions and no more of that awful buzzing noise.
To use Cox Voice, you’ll need an eDVA, which is an all-in-one Wifi modem and phone adapter. Don’t worry, we’ll give you one when you sign up.
Cox voice equipment FAQs
How do I install batteries?
How do I check the status of my batteries?
It's smart to check the battery status of your telephone equipment on a regular basis. There's a battery indicator light on the front of your modem. You can see what the light is saying about your battery here.
How long do batteries last?
Backup batteries can provide up to eight hours of standby service or up to four hours of talk time using a corded telephone that doesn't need power and is directly connected to the modem's jack.
Where can I buy batteries?
How do I use my phone during a power outage?
In an outage, your corded phone will work using your backup battery, but cordless phones require an additional power source, which is why we recommend keeping a corded phone around to use whenever you lose power. Also, make sure you keep non-emergency calls to a minimum during a power outage to prolong the life of your battery. Get more information here.
