After the activation of the phone has been completed, use the following steps to verify that the Cox Mobile device has activated or if additional troubleshooting is required.

Important: Ensure your device has the latest operating system (OS or iOS). If this is not updated, errors may occur and the provider information may not update correctly.


In the top corner of the device, either left or right, verify that Cox Mobile is displayed.

Check if the device is displaying a blue screen.

Ensure the device has three bars of service, anything less may cause issues during setup.
