I can't state that Ooma service is to all jacks in the house. I just tried the phone jack (built in) in the kitchen and there is Ooma service to that jack. The only other built in jack is the one I connected the Ooma unit to. The other 3 jacks are add ons. One of them is the room I want the modem/router/Ooma connected to.

The add on jack with the orange/white wire goes to a room that is being rented out. I can't access the room.

Looking at the pic, seems like the thick black wire bunch is from the telephone company so you don't want to mess with that.

There are only 2 wire bunches going into the house it seems (1 bunch maybe powering many jacks). For heck of it, try to take the orange-white, white-orange off the screws and just leave the red, green on the screws and see.

Can you open up the "built-in" jacks that work with Ooma distribution and see if the wire color coming out of wall is red/green, yellow/black?

This pic shows that the built in jack is connected to both the orange and blue pairs. Can you open up the other built in jack to see if that is connected the same way?

This is the built in jack that when the Ooma unit is connected to, it sends Ooma service to the other built in jack. Its got the blue/white wires attached.

Looks like the jack you are feeding Ooma dialtone to gets to the other "built in" jack via the blue pair (the jack that gets the ooma dialtone seems to be the end of line jack). But the orange pair seems to be connected to the blue pair at the end jack so the Ooma dialtone should travel out to the NID and get connected to the red/green jack at the screw terminals but since it is not working, you may have a problem with the orange pair somewhere in the house. Next thing I would do is to take the orange pair off the screw terminals and put the blue pair on the screw terminals and see. (Blue-white connected to the screw with red, white-blue connected to the screw with green). If that works, clip off the metal leads on the orange pair that you took off the screws and let them just hang loose.
