ooma says if you connect your telo unit to a phone wall jack all the phones in the house will work unless you are still hooked up to a landline. My old house has a 4 wire landline. At&T installed a Cat-5 line to their router/modem for Uverse. It looks like that Cat5 line has two wires joining it. Do I need to cut these two wires to disconnect from my landline ?

I don't know much about this particular installation part, but I would advice you against "Cutting" anything; it's more about "Unplugging" cables in the outside Telco box.
Check out this thread where they helped me when I started on how to extend Ooma' stream throughout my house, it might be helpful to you too http://www.ooma.com/forums/viewtopic.ph ... 586#p78586

I think Uverse makes use of existing phone wires in the house so you could have Uverse come in the house via pair 2 then you can use pair 1 to distribute Ooma dialtone.
