Dial Access Codes and Credit Card Numbers

Sometimes you may want to choose from several long-distance carriers when you send a fax. Rates may vary depending on the time and destination. To take advantage of low rates, you can store the access codes of long-distance carriers and credit card numbers as Address Book numbers.

You can store these long dialing sequences by dividing them and setting them up as separate Address Book numbers in any combination. You can even include manual dialing using the dial pad.

For example: You might have stored '555' and '7000' in your machine as shown in the following table.

Applicable Models

'555' stored in

'7000' stored in


Address Book: Brother 1

Address Book: Brother 2

You can use them both to dial '555-7000' by using the following procedure.

  1. Press [Fax]>[Address Book].
  2. Swipe up or down or press or to display the number of Brother 1.
  3. Press the number.
  4. Press [Apply].
  5. Press [Address Book].
  6. Press [OK].
  7. Swipe up or down or press or to display the number of Brother 2.
  8. Press the number.
  9. Press [Apply].
  10. Press [Fax Start].
    The machine will dial '555-7000'.

To temporarily change a number, you can substitute part of the number by pressing it using the LCD. For example, to change the number to '555-7001', you could enter the number (Brother 1: 555) using Address Book, press [Apply], and then press 7001 using the LCD.

If you must wait for another dial tone or signal at any point in the dialing sequence, create a pause in the number by pressing [Pause].
