Case F: Shared voice/fax line with voice mail
If you receive both voice calls and fax calls at the same phone number, and you also
subscribe to a voice mail service through your telephone company, set up the device
as described in this section.
You cannot receive faxes automatically if you have a voice mail service at
the same phone number you use for fax calls. You must receive faxes manually;
this means you must be available to respond in person to incoming fax calls. If you
want to receive faxes automatically instead, contact your telephone company to
subscribe to a distinctive ring service, or to obtain a separate phone line for faxing.
