to "register" the Distinctive Ring pattern, so your fax machine can recognize its
incoming calls. You will need another person standing by on another line to help
you with Step 6 of this registration.
You can change or cancel the Distinctive Ring pattern at any time. You can switch
it off temporarily, then turn it back on. When you get a new fax number, make
sure you reset this function.
You can register only one Distinctive Ring pattern with the fax machine. Some
ringing patterns cannot be registered.
The fax machine will answer only calls to its registered number.

phone line.
