Ring Settings

Distinctive Ringing

Use this feature to determine whether calls should ring at a tip/ring extension using the system’s different distinctive ringing patterns for outside, intercom and transferred calls (distinctive ringing active)or whether all calls should ring like outside calls (distinctive ringing not active).

Change the setting to Not Active if a tip/ring device such as a modem or answering machine does not pick up intercom or transferred calls.
If distinctive ring is set to Not Active for an extension with both a system telephone and a tip/ring device, the system telephone continues to use the system’s distinctive ringing patterns, but all calls ring at the tip/ring device using a single ring burst.
The system does not pass distinctive ringing patterns generated by a PBX or central office through to extensions (regardless of the setting for this feature).
