So now I'm going to plug my Ooma into an unused phone jack and activate my existing phones.
This my box. The grey wires exiting from the centre bottom lead to my phone jacks in the house.
Do I disconnect:
The blue wires (top right screw)
The white wires (bottom right screw)
Thus severing the connction from the demarc and I'm good to go?
These loose blue and white wires don't have to be connected to create a loop, correct? ie; they can be left dangling/capped.

I have 3 jacks in the house so one of the grey must be spliced, it's the only telco box I can see.
So 1 blue connects to 1 white.
The remaining blue connects to the remaining white.
Dumb question, how do I know before testing I have connected the correct blue to the correct white, and not crossed them?
Blue wires have white stripes on them and white wires have blue stripes on them
BTW, since your port just happend, before you took the blue pair off the screws on the right, you still had dialtone from the phone company right?
