BT Call Sign (U.K. only)
5
This feature of the machine lets you use the
BT Call Sign subscriber service which allows
you to have at least two separate telephone
numbers on one telephone line. Each
telephone number has its own distinctive
ringing pattern, so you know which telephone
number is ringing. This is one way you can
have a separate telephone number for your
machine.
Your machine has a BT Call Sign compatible
distinctive ringing function, allowing you to
dedicate a second telephone number (on the
same telephone line) just for receiving faxes.
NOTE
• You can switch BT Call Sign off
temporarily, then turn it back on. When
you get a new fax number, make sure you
reset this function. This machine will
automatically answer incoming calls that
use your new fax number.
• When you set the BT Call Sign feature to
On, the receive mode is set to Manual
automatically. Manual mode will not
respond to incoming telephone calls,
since the number you use for telephone
calls will use the normal ring pattern.

Combining Speed Dial
numbers
5
5
Sometimes, you may want to choose from
several long-distance carriers when you send
a fax. Rates may vary depending on the time
and destination. To take advantage of low
rates, you can store the access codes of longdistance carriers and credit card numbers as
Speed Dial numbers. (See Basic User’s
Guide: Storing Speed Dial numbers.)
You can store these long dialling sequences
by dividing them and setting them up as
separate Speed Dial numbers in any
combination.
To temporarily change a number, you can
use the dial pad to manually substitute part of
the number. For example, to change the
number to ‘01632-960556’, you could enter
the number (#03 ‘01632’) using
(Address Book), choose Search,
press OK, press #, 03, and then press
‘960556’ using the dial pad.
NOTE
If you must wait for another dial tone or
signal at any point in the dialling
sequence, create a pause in the number
by pressing Redial/Pause. Each key
press adds a 3.5 second delay. You can
press Redial/Pause as many times as
needed to increase the length of the
pause.
You can even include manual dialling using
the dial pad.
For example, you might have stored ‘01632’
on Address Book: #03 and ‘960555’ on
Address Book: #02. You can use them both to
dial ‘01632-960555’ as shown in the following
