When the answer mode is set to automatic, the product’s
rings-to-answer setting determines the number of times the phone rings
before an incoming call is answered.
If the product is connected to a line receiving both fax and voice calls (a
shared line) with an answering machine, you may need to adjust the
rings-to-answer. The number of rings-to-answer for the product must be
greater than the rings-to-answer on the answering machine. This allows
the answering machine to answer the incoming call and record a
message if it is a voice call. When the answering machine answers the
call, the product listens to the call and automatically answers it if it
detects fax tones.
The default setting for rings-to-answer is two.
