Two-Line
Phone
System
A two-line phone system is nothing more than two separate phone numbers on
the same wall outlet. The two phone numbers can be on separate jacks (RJ11) or
combined into one jack (RJ14). Your Fb_MFC must be plugged into an RJ11
jack. RJ11 and RJ14 jacks may be equal in size and appearance and both may
contain 4 wires (black, red, green, yellow). To test the type of jack, plug in a
two-line phone and see if it can access both lines. If it can, you must separate the
line for your FAXJMFC.

When you are installing an external two-linetelephone answeringdevice(TAD)

Distinctive
Ringing
This FAX/MFCfeature lets you use the Distinctive Ringing subscriber service
offered by some telephone companies, which allows you to have several telephone
numbers on one phone line. Each phone number has its own Distinctive Ringing
pattern, so you know which phone number is ringing. This is one way you can
have a separate phone number for ),'our FAS_MFC.
Your FAX/MFChas a Distinctive Ringing function, allowing you to dedicate one
phone number just for receiving faxes. You'll need to follow the directions below
to "register" the Distinctive Ringing pattern, so ),'our b_X/MFCcan recognize its
incoming calls. Youwill need another person standing by on another line to help
you with Step 6 of this registration.
