If you’re showing phone numbers in screenshots or in examples, use the following guidelines:

  • Don’t use any number that might be a real telephone number. Instead, use a number in the range 555-0100 through 555-0199; these numbers are reserved for fictional use. You can also use a number that belongs to Rackspace.

  • If a screenshot includes a nonfictional, non Rackspace number, mask out all or parts of it.
