Do you need long distance on your home phone to send a fax?

Yes, if the fax is being sent to a long distance number. You

dial a fax number on a fax machine exactly the same way that you

would dial the same telephone number on a landline telephone at the

same location. If the phone line you have the fax machine connected

to cannot call long distance, then the fax machine will not be able

to send a fax to a number outside your local calling area.
