Connections & setup – GE 25414 User Manual
This phone has a data port jack to connect an auxiliary phone device, such as a fax machine, computer modem, answering machine, or
even a cordless phone.
The data port switch on the back of the phone controls the data port jack so you can choose line 1, line 2, line 3, or line 4.
Use the data port to hook up your fax machine, for example, and then set the data port switch to line 4 in order to receive faxes on
the phone number for line 4.
If you are talking to someone on line 4 and want that person to fax something to you, change the data port switch to line 2 or line 3,
and give the person on-line the phone number for line 2 or line 3. Your fax machine now can receive calls on line 2, line 3, or line 4.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to switch the fax machine back to the normal line when you are done because outside callers who do not know that you have switched
lines will not be able to reach your fax machine if they dial the line 4 number.
Use the following procedures to test system conﬁguration and identify possible line connection errors. The phone must be connected
to the power outlet, Line 1 must be connected to the LINE 1 + 2 jack, and the phone must have a phone ID.
VERY IMPORTANT: In order to achieve full system operation (i.e. intercom, page, etc.), Line 1 must be connected and common to all phones on the system.
