Step 5: Cut the phone wires from the phone jack

The jack of the phone is usually at the end and it is where the phone cord is attached to. Using either a knife or wire cutters, cut the wires from the jack. The jack can be discarded. Strip the phone wires a half inch back to reveal the wires.
This is kind of cool. With the right iPod Touch, Skype and an App this could become a transitional device for folks who need the security of an old style handset. <br /> <br /> When iPhone video chat gets here this will be dynamite. I see a commercial demand for cords with an RJ-11 plug on one end and a mic-type 1/8&quot; plug on the other.
i made 1 of these works really well i am making one now which will have mic aswell great instructable i subsribed<br />
I work for ATT, great idea so the boss won't know I'm slacking! Cubicle people can use this too.
If you do decide to use it for when the boss comes by you might want to consider placing another speaker in the phone. Another speaker will help give the phone more of a surround sound feel. I am glad this Instructable was in some way useful. Thank you for your comment. I never would have thought of using it in an office. Great idea!
