Question about Siemens Gigaset 8825 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

I have a gigaset 8825. I have a "distinctive ring" problem

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.
Thanks

Hello,

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.

Hooking up fax to KX TG7871 Panasonic Phone


There is excellent support here on basic fax setups. You have what is known as "Distinctive Ringing Service". There are pros and cons to the various setups. I assume you recognize the rings and answer only when the ring for the landline talk comes on. The fax will pick up the faxes, and the answering machine will pick up the voice.

Distinctive Ringing Service setup While it is not available everywhere, a distinctive ringing service can be purchased from most telephone companies. With this service, more than one phone number is assigned to the same phone line. Each phone number will ring differently. The main number will ring with a normal single ring and the additional number will ring with a distinctive ring pattern assigned by the phone company.
When a distinctive ringing service is used, set the Rings to Answer to 2 and then follow the steps below to set the distinctive ringing pattern:
  1. Press Setup , press 4 , and then press 1 to enter the Answer Ring Pattern setup of the Advanced Fax settings.
  2. Use the Right Arrow to scroll through the available settings. When the ring pattern assigned by the phone company displays (double or triple rings), press OK .

I have a canon mx410 all in one inkjet printer.i need assistance with setting up the fax to a phone line. Thank you Zainy


  • 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).

    How to set fax machine so it can accept after 2 rings?


    Distinctive Ring basicsDistinctive Ring service is an optional service available from many telephone companies. The Distinctive Ring service permits you to assign more than one telephone number to the same telephone line. Distinctive Ring allows you to use a single phone line for both voice and fax calls. You can assign a unique phone number and ring pattern for incoming fax calls. When a fax comes in, each telephone number makes a distinctive ringing sound, such as a single ring, double ring, or triple ring.
    NOTE: The Distinctive Ring Service is the name HP and others use to describe this feature. Distinctive Ring is also known as:

    Ringer settings on 8825 base unit


    You can adjust the volume and pitch of the ringing by pushing Menu, scroll forward to Desk Station Settings, push Select, scroll to Ringer Volume and you can adjust the ringer volume, and in that same area adjust the pitch. So you might want to make line 2 ring lower, and with a different pitch so it is not distracting, but still notifies you of an incoming call that is not line 1. The same goes for the handset.

    Fax phone hookup


    Use an identa call box. You set the distinctive ring pattern (1-2-3) and the box will route the call through depending on what number it is. I have two numbers on one line. I have a tee adapter on the phone plug with two phone cables coming out. Each phone cable one plugs into a small distinctive ring box. I set one box switch to 1, and the second box to 2. If the first phone# rings box 1 allows the signal through to the phone. If the fax line rings the phone won't ring, but the second box will pass connection to fax and vise versa.

    I brought mine from Bell Canada phone store. It is called a identa-call box, or distinctive ring switch. Best way to go !

    Setting personalized ring


    Its called distintive Ring. This is the instructions from the manual -

    VERY IMPORTANT
    If you have Voice Mail or a TAD (Telephone Answering Device) and want to keep
    one of your phone numbers dedicated only to fax calls, you must leave the fax machine
    in MANUAL mode at all times while using the distinctive ring feature. Here’s why:
    Manual mode will never pick up a call by itself, since it is «Neutral ». When the fax
    machine is in this « neutral » mode, the Distinctive Ring Feature can be activated. The
    distinctive ring feature is actually an answering mode. So, do not activate FAX ONLY
    mode or FAX /TEL mode while using distinctive ring; otherwise, the fax machine will
    answer calls for all the numbers.
    Registering the Distinctive Ring Pattern
    1
    Set the fax machine to MANUAL mode.
    2 Press Menu/Set, 0, 1.
    3 Press to select DISTINCTIVE:SET?, and then press Menu/Set.
    4 Press to select the prestored ring pattern you want to assign, and then press
    Menu/Set. (You will hear each pattern as you scroll through the four patterns.)
    Be sure to choose the pattern assigned by the Telephone Company.
    5 Press Stop/Exit.
