It probably is the same for the d1200. Here is a telephone voice effect for the d1600 parametric EQ using the 1 in 1 out X 8 effects:

Fc1: 260 hz Q1: 6.0 G1: -18db
Fc2: 1.4 khz Q2: 1.5 G2: +15db
Fc3: 1.9 khz Q3: 2.5 G3: +17db
Fc4: 9.0 khz Q4: 0.5 G4: +14db

Adjust trim to desired effect for how loud your vocal is. Turning up trim gives more distortion.

that telephone effect(parametric EQ) is very cool !!! i saved it as a user effect ..... i know that you can apply it as a "play track " effect can it also be applied as an "input " effect as well ?

Don't forget-the telephone effect that you can get with EQ is only one way to do this. A telephone is a very small bitrate thing.
If you have access to a computer you could always fly the track over to it, downsample it to 8 bit /22.6K hz destructively and then resample it to 16 bit/44.1. and reimport.

Also-there is an effect called Decimator on the korg that will let you do this in realtime-well worth a look.

From my own personal experience, one of the best telephone effects I've experienced was from the on-board effects of the Korg D8. Very believable.

You could actually un-wire an old desk phone. Solder the two leads to a jack. Plug it in and record. That may be too easy. Sorry. I'm an Americian old timer.
