Say goodbye to Ma Bell and rewire your house for VoIP

This is not for the faint of heart but if you love electrical work, stripping and splicing, then you should love this project. Basically if you do this, then you can tie all the phone lines in your house to the one that is supplied by your VoIP router. This means….
1) Use your phones like normal phones.
2) Piss off your local Bell that you suddenly jumped ship.
It’s actually a very interesting project and Engadget has a step-by-step on how to get it running. Your mileage may vary depending on what type of box is at your home.

    We run all our house phones (POTS cordless, etc) via our VOIP line. I think the way we did it was -far- simpler than that. YOu don’t need to patch into the termination box from the telco. Phones are busses. YOu just need to hit -one- of the connectors.
    Silly people.
