Voice mail light is blinking on the phone and on the receiver


This indicates that you have voice mail waiting on your line (telco provided) or you may have voice mail provide by the unit. What you need to do is to call your voice mail box or use your voicemail button and listen to your messages. If you have the owners manual it will tell you how to access the voice mail box if it is local to your unit.

I have no instructions with my phone


1. Plug phone in telephone jack.
2. Wait for it to ring.
3. If it does not ring for 7 days, check for dial tone.
4. When phone rings, lift receiver, put it to your ear and say 'Hello?' politely into the mouthpiece..
5. If it is a telemarketing call, say 'No, thank you' and hung up gently. Slamming the receiver down hard only hurts your new phone. The telemarketer only hears "click".
Avoid yelling and using foul language; this will make the telemarketer very unhappy because he failed to upset you.
6. If after 30 days none of your friends call you, lift receiver, wait for dial tone and dial their numbers using the keypad.
Call them at 4am, preferably on a Monday, and when you hear them, say 'HEY BUDDY!!! GUESS WHO!!!' andmake sure they have your phone number and get them to call you back right away to prove it.

Ok im trying to transfer my work phone to my cell phone so i can go home and not have to sit up here all night. and i cant figure out how to do it.


  1. Pick up the receiver on your work phone and wait to hear a dial tone.
  2. Dial *72 on your work extension phone keypad. You may hear a series of four beeps that indicates the system is ready for you to enter the phone number to which your calls will be forwarded.
  3. Enter your cell phone number including the area code on the keypad of your work extension phone.
  4. Hang up the receiver on your work phone.
  5. Test the call forwarding by dialing your work extension phone from another phone. Your cell phone should ring. If it does not ring , repeat Steps 1 through 4.

What do I buy to use 2line phone and separate fax?


You can buy a 2 line phone, but to use the fax/dsl line for voice, you will also need a line sharing device.

"The stick" is a good brand....

All it does is recognize if an incoming call is a fax or a voice call. If fax it would go to a fax port on the stick. If voice, it comes out the voice port which you can call on.

The same rules apply to this line....if something is using it, the next call will get busy......But now you could have the phone company "Hunt" your line 1 to line 2 (fax/dsl) if line 1 is busy.......hence...2 incoming lines....

I need to retrieve my home phone messages from cell phone


Activating Call Forwarding

You can activate Call Forwarding whenever you want your calls to be sent to another phone, including a mobile phone. Once activated, all your calls will be sent to the forwarding number you request. Each time a call is forwarded, you will hear one short reminder tone on your home phone, but you will not be able to answer the call from your home number.

1. Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.


2. Press *7 2.
In some areas you must use 72#
Dial 1172 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.


3. At the tone, dial the telephone number where you want your calls transferred.
You will hear the number you entered ring. When the number is answered, Call Forwarding is activated.


4. If the call is not answered or the line is busy, hang up and call the number again within two minutes.
You will hear two short tones telling you that Call Forwarding is activated.


5. Hang up the receiver.

Deactivating Call Forwarding

Turn Call Forwarding off when you want to receive calls on your home phone.

1. Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.


2. Press * 73.
In some areas you must use 73#
Dial 1173 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.


3. Listen for two short tones.
Call Forwarding is now off and you will receive your calls at your home number.

Just brought a Fax JX200 and am having great diffuclty working out a problem , problem being we also have a 2 phone dual handset and the problem is when the phone rings it goes straight to fax on all 3...


It sounds like Tel/Fax mode is not set, but that the machine is likely in Fax Only mode. The JX200 has four modes of fax receipt - Fax/Tel, Manual, Answering Machine, and Fax Only. The Fax/Tel mode, which you have indicated is your desire, is meant to let the fax machine automatically switch between fax and voice calls. Documents are received automatically, and the machine rings for voice calls.

Set the mode by pressing [Receive Mode/Resolution]. Every time you press [Receive Mode/Resolution], the mode changes cyclically. If you set Fax/Tel mode, you can control precisely how the fax handles incoming calls by adjusting the following settings:
• Adjust the time the fax takes to check whether a call is from a fax machine or a telephone (<RING START TIME> setting).
• Adjust the length of time the fax rings when the call is a voice call (<TEL RING TIME> setting).
• Set whether the fax switches to receive mode after the ring time set in <TEL RING TIME> has elapsed (<DEFAULT ACTION> setting).
1. Press [Menu].
2. Use arrows to select <DATA REGISTRATION>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <USER SETTINGS>.
3. Use arrows to select <RX SETTINGS>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <ECM RX>.
4. Use arrows to select <FAX/TEL AUTO SW>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <RING START TIME>.
5. Press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <8SEC.>
6. Use the numeric buttons, or arrows to enter the time the fax waits before ringing when it receives a call, then press [Start/Copy] twice. (This is the time the machine spends checking for a fax signal before ringing for the call to be answered as a telephone call.)
7. Use the numeric buttons, or arrows to enter the time the fax rings while waiting for someone to pick up the Handset, then press [Start/Copy] twice. The LCD displays <RECEIVE>.
8. Use arrows to select <RECEIVE> or <DISCONNECT>, then press [Start/Copy]. This setting tells the fax what to do if the Handset is not picked up within the specified ring time set in step 6.
9. Press [Stop].
Setting ends and the fax returns to standby mode. The machine will now handle calls as indicated in the settings you input.

Fax machine


I have the opposite problem, I can send but not receive! For sending, make sure your phone line is plugged into the "1-LINE" in the back of the machine, put your pages face up on the top of the machine, press the "FAX" button, type in the phone number and hit start. Maybe you've done this exactly and you have some sort of error?
