Question about Lands Phones
I am trying to install a new wall plate with a phone jack that the package describes as an RJ-25 phone jack. I need to connect the jack to the exsiting phone wire which has four wires: black, red, green, and yellow. The punch-down block diagram to connect the RJ-25 jack has eight connectors which the package diagram describes as: white/blue, blue, orange, white/orange, green, green/white, white/brown, and brown. Can you tell me if this can be done and, if so, which of the punch-down connectors should be attached to my four existing wires?

I found some good information on this site: http://www.ling.upenn.edu/~kurisuto/phone_wiring.html.
He lists that the old style wire has become obsolete, and shows a diagram of how they line up to the new style.

Take a look at this image:
Notice that the Line 1 will typically present on pins 3&4 and Line 2 on 2&5. I would think in your case Black/Blue is Line 1 (3&4) and Yellow/Black is Line 2 (2&5).
If you have a 1 line phone and only have 1 line active, then typically blue and blue/white can be connected to the Blue and Black of your Jack. If this doesn't work, switch with the Yellow and Black.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Good Luck!
