It's pretty straight forward. Do you have any complications like a dsl modem or something?

Disconnect the main phone line where it enters the junction box (box where all your house phones are connected). Connect the main phone line to the doorbell fon. Run another line from the phone out slot on doorbell fon and run it to the junction box.

Thanks Bob. My problem is that I live in a apartment, and I don't have a junction box (or at least I don't know where it is), the person that lived here before me pulled the wires out of the wall.

I was able to find the phone line, but when I connect it, you hear a dial tone on the doorbell.

Then you haven't got the MAIN line. You need the main line which enters the junction box before it splits off into the other phone lines. If it's an apartment then you may or may not be able to gain access to the main line to your unit.
