 2.5mm jack to RJ11
Is it possible to have a converter that will convert 2.55mm jack into a RJ11?
 Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 10 Nov 2004
Dear Richard,

The answer will depend on the application. There is no standard pin layout for the RJ11 end. For the 2.5 mm jack end use tip for left, sleeve for right and ring for ground. You'd have to know on which pin the particular device you are hooking up to needs to have left, right and ground.
With that said, make sure you use 4-wire RJ11 interface since you need at least 3.
