Caller ID
4.5 Caller ID service
This unit is compatible with Caller ID service
offered by your local telephone company. To
use this feature, you must subscribe to Caller
ID service.
Important:
L This unit is designed in accordance with
the ETS (European Telecommunication
Standard) and only supports the basic
CLIP (Calling Line Identification
Presentation) features.
L This unit will only display the caller’s
telephone number and name.
L This unit will not support future additional
telephone services.
L Depending on the service of the local
telephone company, the date/time of the
call or the caller’s name may not be
displayed.
Make sure the following ring setting is set to
2 or more rings beforehand.
– TEL/FAX ring setting (feature #78, page 69)
Note:
L Depending on the service of the local
telephone company, caller information may
not be displayed on the handset in TEL/FAX
mode. In this case, change the TEL/FAX ring
setting to 1 (feature #78 on page 69).
4.5.1 How Caller ID is displayed
When an outside call is received, the calling
party’s telephone number or name will be
displayed. You then have the option of whether
or not to answer the call.
The unit will automatically store caller
information (telephone number, name, date and
time of the call) of the last 30 (base unit)/50
(handset) callers. Caller information is stored by
the most recent to the oldest call. When the 31st
(base unit)/51st (handset) call is received, the
oldest call is deleted.
Caller information can be viewed on the display
one item at a time (page 35) or confirmed by
printing the Caller ID list (page 104).
Note:
L When caller information is received and it
matches a telephone number stored in the
unit’s phonebook:
– The stored name will be displayed and
logged.
– The handset will use the ring tone
assigned to the caller’s category.

area which does not provide Caller ID
service.
“PRIVATE CALLER”: The caller requested
not to send caller information.
To confirm caller information by printing

– To print automatically after every 30 new
calls, activate feature #26 (page 67).
Call Waiting Caller ID (Handset only)
This is a service of your service provider and will
only operate if you have subscribed to this
service. When you hear a call waiting tone
during a conversation, the display will show the
second caller’s information. You can answer the
second call, keeping the first call on hold. Please
consult your service provider for details of this
service.
Note:
L The second caller’s information will not be
displayed when:
– the base unit is in use, or
– another telephone on the same line is in
use.
Category features for handset phonebook
Categories can help you identify who is calling
by using different ring tones for different
categories of callers.
When adding an item to the handset phonebook
you can assign it to the desired category (page
30). When a call is received from a caller
assigned to a category, the category’s ring tone
you select is used.
Changing category ring tones
You can select a ring tone for each category. If

the external ring tone you set on page 75 when
calls from this category are received. The default
setting is “Ext. Ringtone”.

Important:
L For character entry when entering the name for phonebook, etc., see page 85.
The handset dial keys are used to enter characters and numbers. Each dial key has multiple characters
assigned to it. The available character entry modes are, LetterWise®, Alphabet, Numeric, Greek and
Extended. When in Alphabet (ABC), Greek (F), or Extended (G) character entry modes, you can
select which character is entered by pressing a dial key repeatedly.
L When the handset displays the character entry screen:
– Press {<} or {>} to move the cursor.
– Press dial keys to enter characters and numbers.

LetterWise character table (for English)
LetterWise is a simplified text entry system which suggests the most likely letter to follow the previously
entered text. Text can be input faster because the number of key presses are reduced. You can change
which language is used for LetterWise character entry (page 77).
How to enter characters
L Each time you press a dial key, LetterWise will suggest a character.
L If the suggested character is incorrect, press {#} repeatedly to display the desired character.

5.1 Distinctive Ring
service from your phone
company
The Distinctive Ring service is a service offered
by your local telephone company. This service
provides several telephone numbers for a single
telephone line, and the ring pattern differs
according to which telephone number the call
was addressed to. Originally, this service was
designed for the purpose of allowing different
ring patterns to distinguish which number the call
was addressed to.
This unit distinguishes the different ring patterns.
If the ring pattern is one which is assigned for a
fax, the fax machine will automatically start fax
reception. This service is convenient if you wish
to have a different number for fax in a single
telephone line.
To use this service, you must subscribe to
the Distinctive Ring service offered by your
local telephone company.
5.2 Using two or more
phone numbers in a single
telephone line

How to receive calls
If the incoming call is for the fax number, the fax
machine will ring with the assigned ring pattern
and automatically start fax reception.
If the incoming call is for the phone number, the
fax machine will keep on ringing.
5.3 Using three or more
phone numbers in a single
telephone line
You may wish to use three or more phone
numbers for a single telephone line to distinguish
which number the call was addressed to. A
different ring pattern must be assigned for each
number.

11.1 Available character entries for the handset
Important:
L For character entry when writing SMS messages, see page 43.
The handset dial keys are used to enter characters and numbers. Each dial key has multiple characters
assigned to it. The available character entry modes are, LetterWise, Alphabet, Numeric, Greek,
Extended 1, Extended 2, and Cyrillic. When in Alphabet (ABC), Greek (F), Extended 1 (G),
Extended 2 (H), or Cyrillic (I) character entry modes, you can select which character is entered by
pressing a dial key repeatedly.
L When the handset displays the character entry screen:
– Press {<} or {>} to move the cursor.
– Press dial keys to enter characters and numbers.
– Press {C/T} to erase the character or number highlighted by the cursor. Press and hold {C/T} to
erase all characters or numbers.

– To enter another character located on the same dial key, press {>} to move the cursor to the next
space, then press the appropriate dial key. (This is not necessary when entering text in LetterWise
mode.)
11.1.1 Character entry modes
Several character entry modes are available. When the handset displays the character entry screen,
press {k}, then select a character entry mode, and press {>}. The default mode is Alphabet.
LetterWise character table (for English)
LetterWise is a simplified text entry system which suggests the most likely letter to follow the previously
entered text. Text can be input faster because the number of key presses are reduced. You can change
which language is used for LetterWise character entry (page 77).
How to enter characters
L Each time you press a dial key, LetterWise will suggest a character.
L If the suggested character is incorrect, press {#} repeatedly to display the desired character.

is not programmed correctly. Program the proper rate in feature
#36 (page 68).
L The other party placed the document in their fax machine the

– Paper with foreign objects attached, such
as tabs or staples
– Paper which has dust, lint or oil stains
– Paper that will melt, vaporize, discolour,
scorch or emit dangerous fumes near 200
°C, such as vellum paper. These
materials may transfer onto the fusing
roller and cause damage.
– Moist paper
Some paper only accepts print on one side.
Try using the other side of the paper if you are
not happy with the print quality or if
misfeeding occurs.
For proper paper feeding and best print
quality, we recommend using long-grained
paper.
Do not use paper of different types or
thickness at the same time. This may cause a
paper jam.
Avoid double-sided printing.
Do not use paper printed from this unit for
double-sided printing with other copiers or
