How do I store numbers on my Brother machine for easy dialing? (One Touch, Speed Dial)

You can set your fax machine to do two types of easy dialing: One Touch Dialing and Speed Dialing. If you lose electrical power, auto-dial numbers stored in memory will not be lost.

Storing One Touch Dial numbers:
To store One Touch Dial numbers, please follow these steps:
  1. Press Menu.
  2. Press the left or right arrow key to select Fax and press Set.
  3. Press the left or right arrow key to select Set Auto Dial or Set Quick Dial, and press Set.
  4. Press the left or right arrow key to select One-Touch Dial and press Set.
  5. Press the One Touch key where you want to store the number. The LCD shows the number you selected.
  6. Enter the number you want to store (up to 20 digits) and press Set.

    If you want to enter a pause in the dialing sequence (to wait for an outside line, for example), press Redial/Pause as you're entering digits. Pressing Redial/Pause enters a 3.5-second pause when the number is dialed, and a dash appears on the screen. If you need a pause longer than 3.5 seconds you can press Redial/Pause as many times as needed.

  7. Use the dial pad to enter the name or company name (up to 15 characters) and press Set.
    If you want to store the number without a name, just press Set.
  8. Return to STEP 5 to store another One Touch number or press Stop/Exit to exit the menu.

    When you dial a One Touch number, the name or number you've stored is displayed on the LCD of the machine as the call is dialed.
