phone question

I am thinking about adding phone service to our service package. Can I use my TP-Link modem to connect my main phone to, and then use cordless phones through it?  If I don't use the phone jacks (which are ATT) will I still have to do anything to disable them throughout the house?

You will need a modem/gateway for VOIP service.   You can backfeed the house providing the wiring is good between jacks and you disconnect the previous provider's connection in the outside DMARC box.
