How do I setup my officejet 4620 to receive faxes automatically when I do not have Distinctive Ring

How do I setup my HP Officejet 4620 to receive faxes automatically when I do not have Distinctive Ringing? I just got AT &T U-verse voice and I would have to add another line to get Distinctive Ringing.

Just set it up to pick up on the number of single rings.  Information is in the manual to do this.

Say thanks by clicking the Kudos Thumbs Up to the right in the post.

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

Re: How do I setup my officejet 4620 to receive faxes automatically when I do not have Distinctive R

I set it for the minimal of two rings, then set it to auto answer. The fax machine answered a voice call as a fax after two rings instead of letting it go to voice mail. The manual said I need to buy or use a digital-to-analog filters or converters when setting up the printer for faxing. I can receive a fax manually. Can you provide me with any additional information that might help?
