Set up ringtone for fax machine on same phone line

Set up ringtone for fax machine on same phone line

How do i set up the ringtones to ring differently (i.e. double/triple ring) when an incoming fax machine calls?  According to my HP all-in-one-printer it will distinguish between the rings and pick up if a fax machine is calling.

Comcast does not have distinctive ringing offered.

 

Some add a 2nd line without the custom calling features which is cheaper than a fully featured line.

Re: Set up ringtone for fax machine on same phone

I have no need for a second line, what I need is a distinctive ring tone for the very few faxes I get on my new HP multipurpose fax machine.   I literally get maybe 5 faxes per year.  But I want to get them at home, want to use my new HP machine to receive them and want Comcast to provide the service.  I'm told that technically, its not a big deal for Comcast. 

 

Maybe its time anyway for me to move to another provider for my triple play account.  Others do provide distinctive ring tones.  Comcast is taking over $200 per month from me, they can modify their systems so folks like us can share a fax machine with their main phone line.

 

Waiting ot hear back from Comcast on this?
