    Well, that answered the question. Now I feel rather "Duh!" for not realizing that before. It would have been nice if Brother had added that little blurb in the Ext phone installation instructions. Oh well...live, learn, have fun, and try something new. Thanks for responding. It is appreciated.

First device on the phone line will read hold and confirm receipt of caller ID, there is no data passed to secondary devices.
This is not a fault, this is system standard

I want to send a fax message using Brother 2820 fax machine, but I don't want the receiver to see my phone number when he receives the fax message print out. Is there any way I can do this?


The FAX machine will print the Tel number that has been programmed in your machine. It does not print on the basis of the caller ID received. So i think if you remove the number programmed in your fax machine

Brother 4100e Fax Problem - Caller ID won't work with Fax Machine


Usually, fax machines don't have caller ID capability.. If the sender's fax number appears on the faxes you receive, it's just that they have programmed it into their fax machine as a header.

Manual Doesn't Work Either!


Fax machines usually don't have Caller ID. If you see the phone number on received faxes its because the sender has programmed it into their fax machine.

Intermittent problem of faxes not being rec'd from various areas


After a detailed discussion on chat, we got disconnected before accepting payment. This is not a problem with your fax, as it seems to be receiving most calls fine. I suggest printing out a report - Menu/Set, 2, 0, 2 - of caller ID history and having the phone company look into it further. Either there is a problem with your phone line, or someone is prank calling your fax from outside of your caller ID service area. Both are problems for the phone company to fix.
