   Hmmm... I'd forgotten about that!

   *11*3# before a call-waiting, call-diversion, or other command can be used to apply these commands to the FAX number too.  In fact with three numbers,  *11*n#  can be used with n=2 to select the CLID of the secondary voice or data number, or with n=3 to select the CLID of the FAX number.  Apparently n=1 selects the primary number, but that's the default anyway so it's not necessary.

   And, having just checked the point, I think three numbers, including the primary number, is the limit - contrary to something I implied previously.
