I gave up and went back to an ancient unit. I must speak to a human or nothing. When I called I received a female who was untrained in her job. I then counted and determined enough money was spent and this brand is usless - so I will spread the word at our meetings.
Thanks for contacting me any how. The Gombeen man.

I have a Uniden cordless answer machine,Can my meesages be retived?


You can operate your answering system from a remote location using any touch-tone telephone. Use this function to check for recorded messages, to play or delete messages, even to record a new greeting message.
  1. Call your telephone number.
  2. During the greeting message, press 0 and enter your PIN code. By default, the pin code is "80" without the quotes.
  3. The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. Then you hear "To play incoming messages, press zero two. For help, press one zero".
Available commands are:

  • 0 then 1 Repeat a Message
  • 0 then 2 Playing Incoming Messages
  • 0 then 3 Skipping a Message
  • 0 then 4 Deleting a Message
  • 0 then 5 Stop Operation
  • 0 then 6 Answering System On
  • 0 then 7 Memo Record/Stop*
  • 0 then 8 Greeting Message Record/Stop*
  • 0 then 9 Answer System Off
  • 1 then 0 Help Guidance

BROTHER FAX 1840-C.


Set your machine to MANUAL, this will allow you to answer every call yourself, then if it is a fax, the machine will take over. Sounds like you have it in fax/tel mode now, which allows for the fax machine to answer every call then if not a fax, double rings to you.

Caller ID won't work.


Fax machines are designed for a dedicated phone line only.

No computer modems, no answering machines, credit card terminals, no digital phone lines, etc.

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.

Setting the voicmail


Voicemail or telephone answering device (TAD). There is a BIG difference. Voicemail is product of your telephone service provider. If you have voicemail, most providers have a solution to this that you must arrange through them. If you have an answering machine, you can set your Brother to TAD mode. In TAD mode, if your answering machine picks up, (you must set your answering machine to answer in less rings than your fax), your fax will "eavesdrop" to listen for the fax tones from the sending machine. If it hears these tones, it will disconnect your answering machine and accept the incoming fax. If it does not hear the tones, it allows the answering machine to record the incoming message. If you are home. If you answer the call and hear a tone every 2.5 to 3 seconds, that signals an incoming fax. Simply touch *51 on the keypad of the phone you picked up on. You will hear some shrill tones. That is your fax machine attempting to receive the incoming fax. Hang up the phone you are on and it will receive the fax. In any case, make sure that the receive mode is NOT set to AUTO. Set the receive mode to TAD or MANUAL. If these instructions were not clear enough, let me know and I will send you DETAILED instructions. You can find the manual here: http://www.brother-usa.com/Data/Documentation/Fax/User/UM_FAX2820_FAX2920_MFC7220_MFC7225N.pdf If you need additional assistance, please let me know before you rate this solution.
