Vonage The voltage on your incoming line from your phone company is virtually harmless

The voltage on your incoming line from your phone company is virtually harmless to people. The cable you need to unplug uses nearly the same plug type your telephones use. This certainly isn't a high-skill or hazardous operation.

However, if you're not comfortable doing it, don't. You can't hurt yourself, but you could damage your equipment if you don't do it correctly. It's a pretty simple three step procedure (open box, unplug cable, close box), but if it's beyond your comfort level, don't feel pressured into trying it.

It doesn't work that way. Both of your cordless phone base stations need to be plugging into something that is eventually connected by wire to the Vonage adapter, otherwise it won't be connected to the system. Think of it like plumbing - for your shower and sink and toilet to get water, they need to be connected to your homes plumbing system. You can't install a shower and then just put a toilet on the floor beside it without hooking it up to anything, and hope that it works (it won't).

What the other poster was attempting to describe is that you plug your Vonage adapter into one of your homes existing telephone wall outlets. This will connect it into your homes phone system, and all the phones plugged into other jacks on the system will automatically get a signal. However, for this to work you have to disconnect the phone box on the outside of your house, otherwise you'll fry your equipment (as you'll have two different phone systems both trying to supply electric voltage at the same time, and none of the things plugged into that system are designed to handle that much voltage).

None of this is terribly tricky or time consuming. I stepped my father through the procedure (over the phone), and he's certainly no handyman (although admittedly in this case I had the advantage of having wired my parents home for telephone service originally, so I was easily able to tell him exactly where to go and what to do). But I also know that some people just aren't comfortable doing anything that involves wires, and if this is you, you might be better off finding a friend or family member who is more comfortable with this sort of thing to do it for you. It shouldn't take them more than 5 minutes to actually do (although hunting for the phone input box might add some time to this if you don't know where it is - it may be very well hidden in an older home).

This is the cheapest and easiest solution to connect your phone setup - other solutions will either require you to buy more equipment, change your phones, reduce the number of phones you're using, or run your own wiring (which would be a bit silly if the two rooms aren't right next to each-other, as you already have perfectly good phone wiring going through your home).

(And no, switching one to a corded phone won't make any difference. Both corded and cordless phones still need to be connected into the phone wiring, and thus are identical for purposes of getting the system to work).
