Question about RCA 25201RE1 Corded Phone

1 Answer

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

I have two lines/numbers for my business and do not want to add additional lines and cost to my phone bill yet want to maximize the effective use of both lines. Currently, I have DSL and fax only (receive and send) on one line utilizing an HP all in one machine. I do not currently call out or receive calls on this line other than faxes period. The other line simply has a phone with answering machine. I do not want to change the numbers that my customers utilize currently to fax or call to talk as they are familiar with them, etc. My question is simple: Can I buy a two line phone and get more use out of the now fax only line without disrupting fax receiving, hanging up on calls, etc.? Do I need a splitter? Something or anything else? Do I change the settings on the phone and or fax to a particular function setting? My main objective is to utilize the now fax only line for incoming customer call overflow and transfer customers to different people within our office to respond to their particular needs using a cordless handset and the other line (ie now fax only line).

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 am getting rid of my dedicated fax line and am adding it to my land line. I am told when I have a fax coming in I will hear a double ring which mean my fax line is ringing. How do I set my fax to...


There are two ways to configure a fax machine to answer the phone line. The first way is by pushing the "auto answer" key on the keyboard of the fax itself. When this key is used, the fax machine answers all calls that come in after a certain number of rings. The other way is to manually press the fax button when an incoming call is happening. You can set the number of rings for your machine to pick up by using the keys on the fax machine under the menu feature and then scroll using the up and down arrow keys until you see fax set up and then number of rings.

I have heard about the option that your speaking of, where they give you a separate phone number for your customers to fax when you own a business line but I don't know how the fax machine itself would be able to distinguish between the normal ring of a regular call and the double ring of the merged fax line call. I was told that when I set that up for my friends business recently, that the machine would auto recognize the double ring without any programming and to use the auto answer feature for all calls. He has not had any faxes yet (its a new business) so I can't say for sure if it works or not? I can say that none of his regular calls have been picked up by the fax so far though.

Hello there, Suggest you confirm the phone line (The one going to the wall...) is plugged into the phone line port labeled -1-Line- and not -2-Ext- 1-Line is the outer most one of the two on the back of the machine.

If it's in the wrong port the device to act in the manner you discribed.

I have a brother mfc 6800 and do I need a telephone line on it?


You will need a phone line connected to the MFC 6800. If you have a separate line for your fax number, make sure you connect this line to your MFC 6800. If you have a different ring, but on the same line as your phone number, you'll need to set up your MFC to utilize the distinctive ring (see the manual for setting this up).

Do I need to add a phone line if I buy a fax machine?


No ... you do not need a separate line. When you set your fax up, it will ask you if you have a dedicated line (no) or if you are sharing a line (yes) and how many rings do you want to have before the FAX answers.

I hope this answers your question

This sounds like you have smart ring on your home line. Smart ring lets you have 2 seperate telephone numbers, One for fax and another for phone, but 2 distinctive rings all one one line. Check your manual to see if you have this feature and to set it up.
