I have a voice landline which I would like to receive incoming faxes on.  How can I avoid having that annoying tone pop up if I want to receive voice messages.

you can turn off auto answer, if it's a newer fax, it might have advanced options that waits for voice first before it starts data.

Distinctive ring.  Your phone company will provide another number for the same line.  Each number on the line has its own ring pattern.  For example, your voice message line may use the normal ring and pickup as usual while the fax may have a ring pattern like 2 short, 1 long.  When the fax detects the distinctive ring it picks up the line while your voice service ignores the unusual ring.  Your fax manual will have instructions on how to setup distinctive ring for your machine.  This service from the phone company will not be free, but will be less than a normal line.
