Question about Phones
I have Bellsouth, now AT&T. When they last serviced my DSL they disconnected the wires so I cant use the telephone jack in my bedroom-which I could before. They forgot to reconnect it after they finished troublshooting my DSL. I really dont want to wait for them to come back and wait around for an appt. I would like to know...when I took off the jack from the wall, I see there are 2 wires or cables inside the wall. I dont know which one to hook up. One comes from the top, and 1 from the bottom. Both are coated in white plastic with several colored wires inside. How do I know which is for my bedroom? Also, I see that only the red and green wires are used. Do I just take those and wrap them around the voice 1 tip and ring along with the oen thats there already (probably from my kitchen phone)? I have a POTS Splitter for bellsouth, wall mount installed.Thank you very much!
If they used the old wiring red and green would work if it is newer cat 3 or five wiring it would be white with bule both have the same coclor band on them ex white w blus stripe and blue with white stripe this would only work if the wire is active to this location

Red and green (2-wires) are all that is typically needed. This does depend on if the other end of the wire is properly hooked up!
