Hopefully someone knowledgeable about this can help me. I only have 2 rooms that have working phone room and office. bedroom A and bedroom B have dead jacks bur are wired. When I inspected the wiring in the attic, the good line went to the living room and then split off from the jack there to the office. I merged the wire from bedroom A with the jack in bedroom B since it(B) had a line that went to the attic but it is cut off in the attic. Can I just manually cut the good line to the other rooms and splice it to the cut off wire using electrical tape? Its not necessary that I have all 4 rooms with working jacks off of one line, if thats even possible. Thanks anyone for your help.

Hey Mark, saw your question and I know the got the answers...been working for phone company for 10 years..

You can splice as many wires as you want, it will not affect quality or nothing. The only draw back is trouble shooting, when stuff is "dasiy chain" wired if the feeder goes bad or whatever you lose all the jacks connected to it.. Compared if you home run each jack to a basment ultiltly room for easy access and trouble shooting purposes..

But the best way to splice in the attic would be schotloks made by 3M. Couple different ones are made but you want the red one for 3ways slices, they are waterproof and corrions proof..
