    Other uses for RJ11 (telephone) lines throughout my house?

    I recently had our telephone landline disconnected, which leaves me with RJ11 phone jacks in 6 rooms of our house -- basically every room but the bathrooms. Is there any other use for this old (but still functional) intra-house connection? I thought about an intercom system but don't know how that would be any better than our cell phones . . .

    Yeah thanks. I know about that possibility, but I already have fast ethernet cables (RJ45) routed to all the rooms that need it. And we don't use the hard wiring (ethernet) anymore.

    I'd install functional morse code senders and receivers in every room just to get people all confused about your intentions and sanity.
