Okay, that sounds great; you found the root problem: Someone had messed 
up the T1 inline connector to the point where it was intermittent. You can 
replace that connection with anything that's reliable and not in danger of 
shorting to anything else. Do this carefully; as you now know, it's an 
important connection.

Congratulations! Now you're ready to move on to your next concerns.  ;-)
