After the red and green wires are disconnected from the phone company, you should be able to connect the "phone" port of Ooma to a walljack and get Ooma dialtone on other walljacks (other walljacks that used to work when you had landline).

I wonder if the phone cord that you used from the connection from the Ooma Telo Phone port to the House wall jack is defective.

Also if possible, try moving the Ooma Telo Phone cord connection, to another house wall jack location and see if there is a difference.

See if your setup is called "lightning protector" as you see here: http://voip.mi-telecom.org/ Read up and see if you are doing things right.
