I have a D-Link VTA-VR:

I'm sort of new to Vonage since Verizon kept making my service worse and I eventually cancelled on them. I cancelled yesterday, and via their computers they shut off our phone, and that was that. Now that that was done, I plugged in the phone cord from the VTA to the wall jack, hoping it'll work. However, I go to the other bedroom and pick up a phone. Busy signal. The "Phone 1" is blinking. I remove the cord from the wall jack and plug it into my phone. Dial tone and I can hear voicemail. I don't get it!

1. Reisterstown, MD
2. Comcast High-Speed Internet
3. 768kbps upstream, 6mbps downstream
4. Modem is Motorola
5. D-Link VTA-VR
6. Modem-->Linksys-->2 computers and a Vonage receiver
7. Busy signal when home wiring

have you disconnected your house wiring from them....

calling them only removes your phone number from that pair of wires going to your house ... you still will have voltage on that wiring pair just no number associated with it. - disconnect the wires before you fry your ata

Since the wires are underground and the landlord doesn't know what a phone punchbox looks like, I'm stuck. They keep saying that Verizon controls the phone numbers from their "computers" and that there is always supposed to be "voltage" going through no matter what. I'm in an apartment complex but I am moving into a duplex so hopefully I will find the phone punchbox there.

The punchbox would be in a wiring closet somewhere. I seriously doubt that the landlord doesn't know where it is -- phone company service people have probably been in and out of that closet for years, and who do you think lets them in? It's more likely that the landlord doesn't want people fiddling with the wiring -- anything you disconnect now has to be reconnected when you leave. And if everyone was doing this, it would be quite the headache (imagine moving in and finding your phone line doesn't work, even after the phone company has connected you via their computers).

Of course, this doesn't mean what you want to do is impossible. If you're in an apartment, chances are all your phone jacks are in a single loop, chained together one after the other. In that case, you just need to find the input wire behind one of your phone jacks and disconnect it. Just do a favour for the next person to move into your old apartment and make sure you reconnect it all correctly before you leave, should you decide to do this.

Assuming your apartment isn't some huge, sprawling affair, however, a cordless phone set is probably easier in the long run.

It's a townhouse grouped in five, and it turns out I found a punchbox but it requires a socket wrench we don't have to open. The punchbox is actually in the middle of the grouped townhome, along with power for 264 through 272 (I'm 266) but I may go with yaztromo's idea of cutting the input jacks. Thanks!
