Testing a new location

Testing a new location

Testing a new location

We just bought a new building, and as i look at the wiring, it has two sets of punchdown blocks.  One isn't hooked up to anything, and the second is hooked up to an old NEC phone system.  We are going to be installing our own Norstar system when we move next month, but i'd like to be able to test the lines to make sure that we have working lines where we need them and not just dead jacks.  However, we won't have phone service there for a month.  Is there a good way to test these phone lines?

RE: Testing a new location
