  • The account holder's first name or initials and last name must appear in the directory listing.
  • Only a customer’s legal name can be published.
     
    Example: You cannot request to be published under the name Casper the Ghost because that is not a legal name.
     
  • You cannot use a business name for a Cox Digital Telephone residential directory listing.
  • Only one last name can be used as a main listing for any directory listing; however, hyphenated last names are allowed.
  • You are allowed to include two first names in your listing, but they must share the same last name.
  • You have the option to omit your house number and street name. This option leaves only your name, city, state, and zip code made public. Contact a Cox Representative for more information.
