I am trying to install Ooma so that all my phones use Ooma.

Previously I had phone service through Cox Cable. My house was built in 1955.

I unhooked wires from box on outside of house:

When I plug in Ooma to phone port to wall- on all other phones it sounds like there is an open line. After a few minutes it makes the sound that the phone company puts out when you have an un-hung up phone. On all of the ports that I plug a phone to- and it sounds very distant. I have unpluged all phone in house, but it still is doing this.

Here are photos of my phone box that I disconnected lines from. The only wire that is hooked up is to the center hub and I believe it is the lightning ground wire.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

The outside looks fine.
I would expect Cox cable phone service to interface via the cable modem.
Did you disconnect the phone wiring from the Cox cable modem?
