    Having a split jack, and you can buy them, won't do you any good. You have to have a dedicated fax line; or basically a phone line and a separate one with a different number for your fax machine.

    Yes you are right. Had the answering machine set up to receive a fax, after it hears the fax signal otherwise it answered the phone call.. But it confused my wife.

    And when the fax is coming in, the telephone has a busy signal. So you are missing calls, and possibly when on the phone, missing faxes because there is a busy signal on the fax. So I hope this isn't a business fax.
