    Once upon a time I used an existing station cable as a pull for 
another cable. I did not bother to pull the station off of it. I had the 
pairs stripped back to the copper and twisted together. While I was 
pulling the cable several other people complained that there phones were 
not working. I started yanking stuff apart to find out why all of a 
sudden these phones did not work. It turned out that when I pulled the 
station port off of the cable that I was working on all the other phones 
started working again. I would have never thunk  that one station cable 
could cause all those other stations not to work. I stashed that back in 
the old memory banks until this morning when I saw your message.
