I dont know who to change the phone number on the out going cover page so the receiver has a fax number to send back papers sent

If you don't have a User's Guide, go to the Brother web site and download it. But as a quick fix, you can access the menu function and navigate to settings and find the outgoing fax number place. Then you can change the number and name as you desire.

Can send but not receive faxes

No identification is not the problem. It sounds like you have it set to "manual receive" rather than "auto receive"

Name and phone stamp

You must change the data registration for the fax features. To do this you must locate the "Data registration" key under the one touch speed dial panel. Then press ^ key until Fax registration is displayed. Then press set button. You must scroll using the < > keys to get to the appropriate items you wish to change. It takes a fax technician a few seconds to do this but he's had years of experience. Be patient, you may have to re try until you get it right.
