Changing ring patterns (distinctive ring)
Ring-pattern or distinctive-ring service is available through some local telephone companies. The
service allows you to have more than one telephone number on a single line. Each telephone
number has a unique ring pattern, so that you can answer voice calls and the all-in-one can answer
If you subscribe to a ring-pattern service with your telephone company, you must set the all-in-one to
answer the correct ring pattern. Not all regions/countries support unique ring patterns. Contact your
telephone company to determine if this service is available in your region/country.
If you do not have ring-pattern service and you change the ring-pattern settings to
something other than the default, All Rings, the all-in-one might not be able to receive faxes.
The settings are as follows:
All Rings: The all-in-one answers any calls that come through the telephone line.
Single: The all-in-one answers any calls that produce a single-ring pattern.
Double: The all-in-one answers any calls that produce a double-ring pattern.
Triple: The all-in-one answers any calls that produce a triple-ring pattern.
Double&Triple: The all-in-one answers any calls that produce a double-ring or triple-ring pattern.
