Hello -


I ordered a land line with my new Fios service in my new house. I have the new style ONT. The person at Verizon I spoke to today said that I should just be able to plug a phone into the phone jack on the ONT. But I suspect they were thinking about the old one as I don't see a phone jack on this one? Can anyone help me with how to get a regular phone working on this thing?


Thank you

I'm assuming the ont model is a 211mk or ml. On the bottom will be a coax port, voice ports 1 and 2, ethernet port , power port, and fiber port. Just connect the rj11 cord that comes with the phone into voice port 1.
