Fax a Document or Photo : Receive Faxes

Automatically Receive a Fax
The NX300/305 Series tells you whether Auto Answer mode is turned on by the light next to the Auto Answer/Space button:
To change the answer mode, press the Auto Answer/Space button. The light stays on when Auto Answer mode is turned on. Press the button again to manually receive faxes.
If you connected a telephone with an answering machine, you can set the number of rings before the NX300/305 Series picks up. For example, if your answering machine is set to pick up on the fourth ring, you can set the NX300/305 Series to pick up on the fifth ring. If the incoming call is a fax and you pick up the phone or the answering machine answers, the NX300/305 Series automatically begins receiving the transmission. If the incoming call is a caller, the phone can be used as normal or a message can be left on the answering machine.
If your phone company provides Distinctive Ring Service, you can also have a second phone number dedicated to receiving faxes that’s on the same line as the one you use for making voice calls. Then set the appropriate DRD setting.
