Question about Siemens Gigaset 8825 Cordless Phone
I have a gigaset 8825. I have 1 phone line with a fax number and a voice number from the phone company. I am trying to get the 8825 to work with a HP fax on the same line. The phone company says that the fax number will give a distinctive ring from the phone line. What happens is when a call comes in the fax answers and the 8825 turns on and off. If a fax comes in and I am on the phone the 8825 turns on and off and I lose the call.
Would really appreciate a solution.
I have the same phone system, and *think* you may be able to fix the problem by adjusting the amount of rings before answer on each unit. This assumes there is an auto answer system engaged. Hope that helps some.

Call your phone company to sign up for service. Ask for an additional line with a "distinctive ring." The additional line is for your fax machine---whenever you hear the distinctive ring you'll know that a fax is coming through. Get voice mail service on the regular phone line as well.
Purchase a two-jack phone splitter (sometimes called a wall jack adapter) that allows two cords to plug into the same phone line. Plug it into the phone jack in your wall.
Run a phone cord from both machines into the wall adapter. Test the system by calling both your regular phone number (assure it rings and the voice mail picks up) and your fax number to see if the fax machine picks up (you'll hear a set of strange beeping tones).
