Re: how do I get a fax number?
You are correct just use a splitter and if you hear a fax . beep beep then hit answer or just set your fax to answer on the 6th ring. or purchase a dedicated phone line for faxes. who uses faxes any more.

When we are speaking about faxes you have to try at least a few numbers, because there is sometimes a temporary problems with tel line speed. To send or receive the fax the tel line should be stable. Fax machine try to connect to highest speed (33,6 by default) and if the line is not stable you will receive connection error. Try again but tomorrow or ask yout telephone company if there is a problem with line pifonski
Unplug the phone line from the fax machine. Wait at least 1 minute then call the phone number that goes to the fax machine from another line such as a cell phone. Make sure you get a ring and not a busy signal. If you get a ring then hang up the phone. Plug in the fax machine again and call the fax number again. If you get a busy signal then either your phone if off the hook, the switch that is actuated when the phone is placed in the cradle is bad or your modem in the fax machine itself has gone bad. Another thing to try is unplug the fax machines power cord for 30 seconds then plug it back in. I have seen the modems get "locked up" and keep the phone line open. Unplugging will sometimes reset this and get it working again.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
Your fax number is the phone number of the line going into the fax machine.
Or do you want to input the phone number into the machine? In which case I would need to know the make and model number of the machine. But if its just the Fax Number, it is the Phone number of the incomming phone line.
If you have a BT line and use the 1571 answering facility , when you have a message waiting the dialling tone changes from a constant tone to a split tone. This is to let you know that you have one or more messages waiting.
In order to get the dialling tone to revert to the constant tone you have to deal with the waiting messages in accordance with the options provided i.e Save, Listen Again or Delete. BT say the Split Tone is to let subscribers know when they have a message waiting. This should resolve the Fax problem.
