Series (or to another wall jack on the same line).

When you receive a call, if the other party is a fax and you pick up the phone or 
the answering machine answers, the WorkForce 600 Series automatically begins 
receiving the transmission. If the other party is a caller, the phone can be used as 
normal or a message can be left on the answering machine.
Note: 
A phone or answering machine must be connected to the EXT. port for the WorkForce 
600 Series to detect an incoming fax call when a phone is picked up. If a fax call comes 
in, and you pick up the phone without having a phone or answering machine connected 
to the EXT. port, the call will be disconnected when you hang up and the WorkForce 
600 Series will not receive the fax.
