flip,

When you say condo, do you mean a single level "apt" like place? In some parts, a condo can mean anything from a flat (i.e. single level on a multilevel building) to an actual townhouse.

If you have a townhouse, then it would be easier because the phone connections are usually outside in the back of the building.

If you live in a flat, then you will need to find where the incoming line is and disconnect them. Then all your jacks will be good to go by simply connecting your Vonage router/adapter to any phone jack.

Did you previously have only 1 line and were all your jacks connected to the same phone line? If so, then you will simply have to find where the incoming phone liine it and disconnect it.

Answering these questions will enable me to help you.

I live in a 4 story building and i'm on the 2nd floor.

"Did you previously have only 1 line and were all your jacks connected to the same phone line?"

the answer is yes and where would I typically find where the incoming phone lines are and what do I have to do???

Thanks for your help

I cannot speak for all single floor apt/condo units but they typically will have the incoming line to the kitchen and then disperse from there. One way to check it is by opening up your phone jacks (it requires the removal of 2 screws per jack) and see how many sets of wires there are. On one of the jacks (the last one in the sequence), there should be only 1 set of wires (either green/red, black/yellow or if you have a more modern set of wires solid blue/blue-white stripes, etc).

You can check out websites like this for further help:

http://www.homephonewiring.com/

So the wiring could be like this:

Incoming line from telco --> Jack #1 (usually kitchen) line #1 from Jack #1--> Jack #2 line #2 from jack #2 --> Jack #3

If jack #3 is the last one, it will only have 1 set of wires.

Jacks #1 & 2 will have 2 sets of wires connected to it.

By the way, when I say a set of wires, old phone wires will have 3 pairs of wires bundled (encased in a larger plastic cover) in a set. Newer cat-5 wires will have 4 pairs of wires bundled in a set.

Basically, you will want to open up Jack #1 and disconnect one of the pairs (typically green/red or solid blue/white with blue stripes). If this results in no dial tone for all your jacks then you have disconnected your entire condo from the outside world.

However, if this results in your kitchen phone still having a dial tone but the rest of your phones are dead, then you have disconnected the wrong pair. You will need to disconnect the other pair.

Basically, the pair you disconnect should make all the jacks in your condo go dead. This means that you have disconnected the outside line. Then you will want to tape them up individually so that it does not get reconnected.

I hope this makes sense. Please feel free to ask questions.
