I'm interested in using Magic Jack Plus in conjuction with the phone line jacks in my house. I'd like to be able to access Magic Jack from any phone in my house. I understand that I have to disconnect the phone line from outside my house.

What adapter do I need to connect the Magic Jack to my home phone line system?

As long as the REN on your phones are low enough all you need to do it plug a phone cable from the MJ phone connect to the wall jack. Like you said you HAVE to make sure your TelCo is disconnected from the outside box or you could fry your MJ
The easiest way, if not enough phones ring for you, would be to get a 4 or 5 or 6 handset cordless phone set-up. Put one in every room and then hook the base up to the MJ
