As of today I'm no longer with my previous phone provider. With the intent of back porting my phone over the existing wiring I went outside to the network interface device to ensure I was disconnected from the grid.

My NID has 4 primary connections of which only one was in use - line 1.

That has several plugs very similar to the RJ-11 but hinged. I opened that hinge. Am I disconnected or do I need to do something else, like cut the wires?

As long as you can get the cover closed again so you don't get moisture inside, you are all set. In an effort to prevent people from plugging in the short cords they used to use into the wrong jack (and have line 1 show up on line 2, etc.) some telco's are using the hinged connectors. Same effect. When the jack is unplugged, you are disconnected from the street.
