    OK...I just took notice after setting the settings for manul rather than
    tel/fax that after someone (they need to get a life) lets the phone rings
    more than 10 times (after 5 that should tell you something) my printer/fax
    starts to ring. I do have an answer mahcine hooked into a phone jack but it
    is turned off...meaning that there is no power getting to it. I just want
    to know why all of a sudden now the printer rings after 10 when it should
    not. Never done it before. I wish some people would just get a life after 5
    rings...I have caller ID and do screen my calls like most of the world.

    I'm curious ... what does this mean, to "get a life
    after 5 rings"?

    5 rings...if I do not answer then why let the darn phone continue to ring?
    If I am on the phone with someone I do not answer and I am sure some folks
    do the same thing. I think it is just annoying for people to let it ring
    after 5 times knowing that maybe just so and so is not going to answer or
    maybe not at home. Now I do forward my calls to my cell when I leave the
    house. Still the same thing...some people just do not learn. I did have
    that sprint message line but it also became annoying...line would not let
    you dial out until you answered you voicemail box. So I got rid of that.
    All of sudden now my printer wants to ring when I do not pick it up and that
    is just strange to me. I am guessing if I unhook the answer machine maybe
    it won't do that. But the answer machine is turned electric
    getting to it but is it still plugged into the phone jack.

    after 5 rings"?

    I see. Some people (quite a lot) don't think "mobile/cell"
    when they make a call, nor do they assume that everybody
    answers the call in the first two rings; which they certainly
    do not. I was just curious what you meant by it.
