Do I need a special phone?

No. Any standard, touch-tone phone should work with Mediacom phone. It makes no
difference whether it is a wall mounted phone or a portable cordless phone. There are some
phones that are incompatible with a digital phone service, but very few of these have been
identified. To use some of the calling features such as Caller ID name and number, you
must have Caller ID display equipment or a phone with Caller ID built in.
