What to use as phone junction

Have a new house and the electrician added 6 phone jacks. Three of them are just twisterd together with wire nuts and includes the wire going outside to the demark.

I don't care about the demark since I'm using Vonage, but need all the wires tied together. Is there an easy to use phone junction box to connect them all in a star pattern? Using a punch down block seems overly complicated since all I want is a reliable way to tie them all together.

PS: does it seem acceptable that the electrician just twisted the wires all together? Seems like slipshod work to me. I would have expected them to use some kind of distribution box. Strikes me that if someone/something gets caught and pulls those wires, I'd lose a connection. Just wondering if I should complain about their work and ask them to give me a better starting point. Is this typical for new construction? Seems to me if I had the phone co come in theyd charge extra for the inside work.

For more than a couple wires, a 66 or 110 block is what you really want.

they aren't to hard to deal with when you get to now them, and can in fact be quite flexible.
