To stop the ringing and make it appear that the phone has been picked up, it is necessary to put a load on the line. I find that 2.2K ohms across the line will do it, but you could draw more current, my phone draws 27 mA off hook.
The relay you want is called double pole, single throw (DPST). Double pole double throw (DPDT) will also work. Radio Shack has them.
