Very Important
If you have Voice Mail, or a TAD (Telephone Answering Device) and want to 
keep one of your phone numbers dedicated only to fax calls, you must leave the 
machine in MANUAL mode at all times while using the Distinctive Ring 
Feature. Here’s why: Manual mode will never pick up a call by itself, since it is 
«Neutral». When the machine is in this «neutral» mode, the Distinctive Ring 
Feature can be activated. The distinctive ring feature is actually an answering 
mode. So, do not activate FAX  mode or FAX/TEL mode while using distinctive 
ring; otherwise, the fax machine will answer calls for all the numbers.

Caller ID
The Caller ID feature of this machine lets you use the Caller ID subscriber 
service offered by many local phone companies.   This service provides the 
name or telephone number of your caller on the LCD as the line rings.
After a few rings, the LCD shows the telephone number of your caller (or name, 
if available).  Once you pick up the  handset, the Caller ID information 
disappears from the screen, but the call information remains stored in the Caller 
ID memory.

You will see the first 16 characters of the number or name.

area.

Caller ID service varies with different carriers.  Call your local phone company 
to determine the kind of service available in your area.
If both the name and number are received, the LCD shows only the name.  You 
can print a list of Caller ID information received by your machine.
