Telephone Line repair?

I moved into a flat in Beijing about 5 months ago and in the bedroom there was a telephone socket hanging off the wall, I assumed it was useless so I snipped the wires and then stuffed them back in and sealed up the socket.

I then realised that the main telephone line came into the apartment through this line. I have managed to put some of the wires back together which has given me access to the internet again, but the landline telephone will still not work no matter where I connect it. Do the internet and the telephone run on separate lines and am I going to need an engineer to come and repair the line? Or can anyone give me some hints as to how to repair? There are eight wires in each cable, an orange/hatched orange, blue/h blue, brown/ h brown and green/ h green. There are also two white wires which I assume carry the power.
