Sounds like you may have some kind of speed dial set as the default. You might want to peruse the instructions. A lot of these machines have special keystrokes to use it as a normal voice phone.

If it's a hand-me-down, most of the major manufacturers have their manuals as free downloads online.

It sounds almost like a PBX type setup - if you don't dial 9 first, you get the long tone. Something similar to that. As MrRon mentioned, you may need to change some settings.

You could also try resetting the machine if you can find out how.

Tell us a little more about it and we'll see if we can find some info on it.

Good luck!
