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. You can store these
long dialling sequences by dividing them and
setting them up as separate Speed Dial
numbers in any combination. You can even
include manual dialling using the dial pad.
(uuBasic User’s Guide: Storing Speed Dial
numbers)
For example, you might have stored “01632“
on Speed Dial: 03 and “960555“ on

could press
(Speed Dial), choose
Search, press 03 and then press 960556
using the dial pad.
