    I recently bought a very old rotary telephone, and I would like to
    hook it up and use it. There are 3 wires in the telephone cord--red,
    green and yellow. How do I hook these wires up to a standard RJ11
    jack? The phone I have has red, green, yellow and black.

    Is there something else I need to modify to get this to work?

    thanks! Kevin

    First, don't post HTML.

    Second, call the phone company and see if they still support pulse

    If so, then connect red to red, green to green, and leave the
    yellow and black unconnected. It might not ring, but that's a whole
    nother project. ;-)

    Good Luck!
