Anyway, once porting is done, you'd still have landline dialtone for a few days (can call out but can't receive calls) so you can still disconnect the house wires from telephone company and be certain that you've done it right.
After porting is done, check if you have dialtone (you should still have dialtone from landline)
Go out to the box and cut your 2 blue an 2 white-blue wires free from the butt connectors and connect the 2 blues together using 1 2-wire butt connector and 2 white-blues together using another 2-wire butt connector.
Back in the house and your dialtone should be gone.
Now, you can feed Ooma dialtone to your house wires by simply connecting a phone cord from Ooma's phone port to a walljack.

Unplug all three of them and you landline dialtone should go away.
No rewiring is required unless you have an alarm system.
Tag the plugs so no one re-connects them.

The only other wire bunch I see is the white one next to the thick black one. Where does that go? Into the house?
Did you check if have another NID somewhere else around the outside of the house or inside the garage?
Do you have dialtone when you plug a phone into any of those 3 test ports?
I checked the entire house thoroughly and could not find another NIB anywhere (including the attic or in the dropped ceiling in my basement).
Of the three test ports, I only receive a dialtone when plugged into the top test port. That port has two wires going to it: a red-white and a green-white. Each of those attaches to the two left screw terminals as seen in this picture:

Then, go out to the NIB and disconnect all the wires from the thick wire bunch from anything that they are connected to (wether to the screw terminals or other wires). Then verify all your house jacks have no dialtone. Then you can safely connect your Ooma phone port to one of the wall jacks.
