I probably should've done that, but my fiance works somewhere they sell splicers, so I waited on the splicer and got all the jacks installed (except the kitchen cabinet one, still deciding how to approach that) already. It should be easy enough to trouble shoot if there's dead outlets. We don't even have it in service (cell phones only), but I'm sure it'll still give a dial tone for 911 calls and such.

I see.... so you kind of don't have a live line yet... in that case... I wouldn't hard connected all phone jacks yet.... may be you should do what people usually do, just have the wire go through the device box, but connect nothing with it, not even cutting the wire... reason for that is, if for some reason when the phone company come to hook up.... if it is not working... they can blame you making wrong connection inside the house.... if you hasn't connect nothing yet , just have the wire going around the house on various spots... they everyone sure there is nothing wrong with connection inside the house as there isn't any connection yet....
