Vonage bdee1, First of all, I want to welcome you to Vonage. Second, I am no expert


First of all, I want to welcome you to Vonage.

Second, I am no expert in phone wiring but I do have some knowledge of it via reading things on the internet. So please allow me to respond to your questions.

you said,

You are not. If your Verizon service is for 1 line, you are only using the red and green wires. The other pair, the yellow and black are reserved in the event that you choose to use have a 2nd line go through your home. Let's say you purchase a 2 line phone, this phone can use both pairs of wires right away without having to mess around with it. In addition, if you want your children to have a 2nd line in their room, all you would have to do is to swap the pairs in the jack in their room and your children would have access to only the 2nd line. So that is the reason why they connect all 4 wires to each jack.

Here I am a bit confused because your pictures from a previous post appear to show a central location with wires leaving from the central location (i.e. I see 3 or 4 wires leaving the "quad" or what I would call a bridge going to 3 or 4 jacks around your house). But the picture in this post has a jack with 2 sets of wires which appears to me as this jack and the next one following it are connected in sequence. Older homes were wired in sequence (i.e. the wire comes into the home from the telco and then connects to the first jack. A second wire is connected from the first jack to the second jack in the sequence etc. That is why each jack, when connected this way, will have two sets of wires except for the last jack in the sequence (it will only have 1 set of wires).

Now in regards to your concern about the clarity of your phone calls already with Verizon, my suspicion is that your insider wiring is aging quickly and has also some interference issues with it.

I don't know how easy it would be to replace the wires but if they go through conduits, then the replacement would be well worth the time and effort and you could put in new cat5 wires which would be a superb set of wires. But that would be your call.

I know that low voltage wires like phone wires can be affected if it is nearby any 115 volt electrical wiring. Although I don't know what it would sound like and whether your line quality issues would be related to that or not. Perhaps someone else could comment on that.

I hope this helps, mundy5

any recommendations on which cordless phone systems?
This is getting to be one of the most frequently asked questions on this forum.
so i was all set to get the uniden multi handset and skip my house wiring allthgether
The second jack on your Vonage adapter would be for line #2, not merely a duplicate
