Do you have a voltmeter???

Hi Bill, simpliest way to test different scenarios here is to use a voltmeter, and find the "two" live wires and make sure you are hooked up correctly. Offhand, I think typically the phone itself uses the red and black (I could be wrong on that one), but the feed into the jack could be any of the four wires (you just have to use the correct wires going to the phone). Also, check the junction box on the side of your house... open both sides (the phone company side can be opened with a nut driver, 9/16" I think it is) and check the connections there.

Hope this helps, and let me know if you have questions.
