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.
