Additional dialling
operations
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.
5
To temporarily change a number, you can
substitute part of the number with manual
dialling using the dial pad. For example, to
change the number to 01632-960556, you
could enter the number (01: 01632) using
(Address Book), choose Search, press
01, 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: 01 and ‘960555’ on
Address Book: 02. You can use them both to
dial ‘01632-960555’ as shown in the following
