Just installed Ooma today.
From what I have read IOT have all my other phones in the house (toal of 4 phone on a single line) powered with a dial tone, I have to plug the Ooma phone cable directly into a wall jack. I tried this and it seems to work.
My problem is that this leaves me without a phone where the Ooma is plugged in. How do I get a phone where the Ooma is? Do I use a splitter at the jack on the wall where the Ooma phone cable is plugged into? Or do I have to run another dedicated phone line IOT put a phone besode the Ooma?
Don't forget to disconnect your home's wiring from the Network Interface Box that is probably outside your home. This isolates your home wiring from the telco and will prevent lots of problems. Usually this involves nothing more than just unplugging the little wire inside that box. The box will have two segments - one that is for the utility and one for the customer. The little plug will be on the customer side.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
Here is a quick and dirty post about it. In the post, there is a link that would lead you to a comprehensive study of this subject. /viewtopic.php?t=14843#p103582tadpolesuv wrote:Sorry to jump on this thread but I was wondering where I could get more infomration about disconnecting the land line in the junction box.
