How many times do you get a fax from your phone? If you get a fax at least once a week, that probably means you are a busy fax sender. That's okay. Most people don't keep a fax machine in their home, office, or spare room. Most people also have a cell phone and if they don't use it for business, personal, or both, that probably means you won't see the faxes often either. Here are some tips to help you send or receive a fax from the phone with minimal effort.
If you want to send or receive a fax from the phone, the first thing you need is an internet connection. If you don't, your fax message cannot be sent by email or over the phone. To send an email, your computer must have an email account and if you don't have one, you will need a web-based email service.
Also, if you want to send or receive a fax from iphone, you need to be able to recognize the fax number and you need to have it in the format the fax machine understands. The common formats are PFD or 5 FTD and TIF or 10 FTD. If you can only recognize the number by its name, you will probably have problems receiving the fax or sending another fax.
There are online services that help you recognize fax numbers. Some of them will even let you send or receive a fax from the phone using their online faxing service. They usually charge a small fee but this is usually worth it.
If you can send an email, you can also use the internet and online services and just forward the fax to the phone line, and you are done. You don't even have to print out the fax because it is already digitally formatted. This saves you time and money and you don't have to deal with the paper used for a traditional fax machine. Also, you don't have to find someone in the office to sign for the incoming fax when you send one.
Some Internet fax services will allow you to send a fax over the phone. It uses your regular phone line and the fax is sent over the internet using email. You may have to configure your computer so that the incoming faxes can also send us an email message. This is usually a very simple step. It also allows you to receive faxes anywhere in the world and you don't need to configure a fax line to do this.
Another option that is becoming popular is using cell phones as fax machines. Some companies send faxes through cell phones and this is now a very secure and easy option to send or receive a fax from the phone. The incoming faxes are sent through the phone line and sent to the fax machine where it is converted to a text file.
The faxes then go through a security system before they are sent to the appropriate departments. It does cost more money than using a fax line from the phone but it is also more convenient than going to the phone and having someone sign for it or print it out for you.
