Setup Receive
Setting the F/T Ring Time (FAX/TEL mode only)
If you set the Receive Mode to FAX/TEL, you’ll need to decide how
long the fax machine will signal you with its special
pseudo/double-ring when you have a voice call. (If it’s a fax call, the
fax machine prints the fax.) This pseudo double ringing happens
after the initial ringing from the phone company. Only the fax
machine rings and no other phones on the same line will ring with
the special pseudo/double-ring. However, you can still answer the
call on any extension phone (in a separate wall jack) on the same
line as the fax machine. (See Operation from extension telephones
on page 5-5.)
