yes if the wiring already works and the phone works when fed with one
at a time. if you get crosstalk try a different phone. new wiring
should be twisted pairs to avoid crosstalk. label line wire color
pairs at each jack, line 1, line 2.
1. Can't an acoustic modem work with a VoIP line?
2. In many respects, a cell phone is better for contacting 911 than an
ordinary land-line. A cell phone connection, for example, can't be cut by
the invading goblins.
A 911 call from a cell phne doesn't give your exact location. If your
house is on fire or a loved one is in danger, that might be a
consideration. Often, 911 callers are unable to speak or answer
questions for a multitude of reasons. The dispatcher still knows where
the call is coming from and can send help immediately.

if a regular phone line contacts a VOIP adapter it will fry your
adapter, they can never be in contact with a standard phone
It's already here, if not spreading like wildfire.
More and more wireless coverage areas are regulated by entities that are
mandating the deployment of Caller ID and other, improved technologies.
A landline will always have one or more advantages over wireless,
depending on the needs of the user. Of course, the same can be said of
wireless, not to mention the implied advantage of wide area mobility.
But it isn't an exact location. Carriers could choose two methods. One
is assisted GPS and the other is triangulation. GPS is fair and
triangulation is pretty coarse. Plus some states (like mine) choose to
spend the 911 tax that the cell companies are forced to collect on other
stuff. So many call centers don't even have a method to process the data.
As of 2008, all cell phones are supposed to be location capable w/GPS
chips. It has been a requirement since before 2005 that all handsets
sold be location capable and since 2005 the cellphone companies have
been required to be at least 95% location capable, although some got
waivers from that as long as all new handsets being sold were
location-capable (so that people voluntarily holding on to old cell
phones wouldn't be forced to change until theY changed providers or
bought new phones.)
There is some concern, especially in rural areas, however, that the
public safety access points (911-centers) may not be paying to get their
call centers upgraded.
Anyway, for the vast majority of the population, the 911 centers can
now know where a person is even if they can't respond or don't know
where they are.
It doesn't have to be a rural area because it doesn't work in my area.
And we are being charged to pay for this by way of the e911 tax that the
cell carriers must collect. Some states decided to spend the money on
