    HI there

    Thank you so much for sending this through. I haven't been able to find the answer to my question, but thanks again for trying.

    I think it might be a design fault in the machine. It only rings three times before clicking into the answer phone. My parents are both 60+ and have to run to the phone to pick it up. hey have hurt themselves on a couple of occassions so I wanted to know how to make the ring tone longer before the answer machine clicks in.

    From looking at the manaul there only appears to be one setting, and no deatils on how to change it.

    Thanks again

How do i set up fax to automaticely receive faxes after several rings

For a phone line dedicated only to the fax machine, the process is as follows:
  1. Press Menu/Set, 0, 1.
  2. You will see the Fax Receive window
  3. Use UP and DOWN arrows to change the setting to FAX ONLY
  4. Press Menu/Set.
  5. Press STOP/EXIT
Your fax machine will now answer every incoming call.
If the fax machine is sharing the phone line with a telephone, repeat the above steps and change from FAX ONLY to FAX/TEL This option will allow you to share the line with a phone only, not an answering machine. Once in FAX/TEL mode, the fax machine will still grab every incoming FAX call, and give a special ring (slightly different than a regular telephone ring) when it's a regular incoming phone call signaling you to answer the phone. I hope this helps with your problem. Best of luck!

How do I increase my ring tone volume on my Moto Razor .?

You can set the length of your incoming ring to in the Call forwarding portion of the phone. Usually, it is set to 25 seconds. It can go as high as 30 seconds. To set the ringer to be longer or shorter, it goes by 5,10,15,... set of 5 increments. up to 30.
I would also recommend to use a factory set ringtone, set the profile to LOUD or OUTDOORS. With vibrate option on. Some downloaded ringtones don't play as loud.

Telephone rings only twice

No. Fax machines are designed to have their own dedicated fax lines.

Some newer models, tho, allow you to set NUMBER OF RINGS.
