Question XLink Review - Need help re: removing landline at demarcation point

I bought one a month ago and was waiting for the launch of the iPhone 4S to port my number to the cell and get rid of my landline. The using the XLink with a set of wireless phone appears to work very well. Calls coming from the iPhone ring on all the phones connected to the base. The call and name display appear on the phones and calls can be made from any of the phones.

I am having an issue connecting with the wire phones in the house any assistance would be appreciated. The instruction say that I need to disconnect at the demarcation point and the other phones should work if I plug in the wired system.

I found what I think was the demarcation point. The switch I found looks identical to the photo that appears on the Wikipedia listing for demarcation point (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demarcation_point - 20th century Bell Canada demarcation point). I removed all the wires that were attached including the ground. I would have expected that this would disconnect me. However, I still have a tone on the phone and if I when try to phone out I get a Bell message. Any advice would be appreciated?

Hugh: if there is a better thread to post this feel free to move or let me know and I can repost.

Thanks

So if you don't have access to the demarcation point (i.e. apartment inside of a house), can you use this service or not?

I resolved my issue. There was a second demarcation point above the first one under a ceiling tile. Everything works great.

99gecko,

I don’t how telephones are set up in an apartment setting. You don’t need to unhook the demarcation point to use the service only if you need to use the existing wiring. In an apartment, I would just connect the box to a wireless system with a few extensions. That would work great.
