You can have it from your provider. Fax number mostly appears in every transaction you made. You can also get help from the person whom you sent your fax because your number will apear on the fax you sent.

My fax machine has its own phone number, which I generally refer to as the fax number.

It the computer is on the same line as the fax machine then no. The fax machine will dial the receivers number to ask for the fax receiver to allow it to send. as you are sending on the same line you'll probably get an engaged tone

Use your computer as a fax machine via internet by using RingCentral . All in one printer with fax machine need to be installed and detected by your Operating System. Windows has its own fax utility.

Assuming that you already own the fax machine, the only charge is the cost of the telephone call using the fax machine. If the number you are sending the fax to is a free local call, or a toll-free number, then there is no charge to send the fax from your home. If the number is not local or toll-free, you will pay the same per-minute long distance charges you would pay if you made a regular phone call from your home phone to the same number. Of course, you will also pay for the electricity to operate the fax machine, but that cost is negligible.

To send a fax from a fax machine: 1) Put the fax into the sheet feeder of the fax machine. 2) Dial the fax number that you want to send to 3) Press send 4) Your fax machine will attempt to connect to the other fax machine, and if it can do so will automatically send the fax. If the fax isn't successfully transmitted (for example busy signal, the line isn't working) there will be an error message To send a fax from a computer: You either need an online fax service (this will need a connection to the internet), or a modem and software as well as a phone line to fax through the computer. Each service and software is different with its own features. To send a fax without a computer or fax machine: There are a number of stores that will have a fax service. Copy/Print centeres (such as UPS Stores or FedEx Kinkos) will have one most of the time, as well hotels or business centeres will also usually have a fax service.

Yes you can send faxes without a fax machine. The are many online services that provide this service. My company uses these types of services all the time.

Your fax machine should come with the software that you are going to need. Typically the software that they provide is efficient enough to use on its own.

Step1 Check the fax machine plug. After you check the fax machine power supply, check to make certain that its telephone cord is plugged into a phone jack. Step2 Insert the document that you wish to fax into the "outgoing" fax tray. Machines differ, but there will usually be an icon or picture directing the user as to where to place the outgoing document. Most fax machines require the user to insert the documents face down, but check your specific machine. Step3 Dial the phone number to which you wish to send the document. In some offices, you may need to dial a number such as "9" for an outside line. You may also need to include the area or country code. Step4 Wait for the receiving fax machine to "answer." You will hear a sound like a computer modem: a series of high-pitched squeals and static-like noises. Depending on your fax machine, you may have to press the "Start" button to send your fax, or your model may automatically start sending the fax by itself. Step5 Look at the fax machine display console. It shows if pages have gone through successfully or if you need to resend a fax due to an error. Generally, when a fax has gone through successfully the machine will beep or display a "success" message. Step6 Stock your fax machine with plenty of paper in the "incoming" fax tray. That way if you receive a fax, it instantly prints on the paper provided. Even if you are out of paper, your fax machine will keep received faxes in its memory, and it will print them when you finally do stock the machine with paper. Step7 Note whether your fax machine has its own dedicated phone line. If so, it should receive faxes automatically. If you use one phone line for both your fax machine and a regular telephone, you may need to press "Start" to process an incoming fax. You can recognize an incoming fax easily; if you pick up the phone, you will hear the same modem sounds as when you are sending a fax.

subscribe to an internet fax service which sends documents over the internet instead of phone lines. BTW... No software, fax server or fax machine is needed for this. Faxes are received as attached .TIF or .PDF files Another alternative to a physical fax machine is to make use of computer software which allows people to send and receive faxes using their own computers.

Usually it does. There is no requirement to have its own line, but with the volume of fax traffic most medical offices get, most of them should have a separate line (sometimes the line is shared with something like a payment terminal)

I send my online fax as follows: Via my own email inbox: I type (the faxnumber)@(service provider) to send fax from my email account Via my online account (at my service provider) : I fill in the fax number, the name of the recipient, the resolution of the fax, I add a frontpage with my logo and I send it. The great thing is that I can send fax anywhere anytime; Additoinal Answer: Fax works by scanning a piece of paper, and converting that paper into a "noise" that is transmitted over a phone line. That "noise" is then decoded by another fax machine, that then converts that information over to a printed image on paper.

1. Try to avail of internet fax service . This one does not need a fax machine and a phone line. Using your internet connected PC with intenret fax tool you can send and receive faxes in few seconds. Compared to the traditional fax machine, this one's very cost effective since you won't buy paper, ink and pay for the phone bill. Very efficient in transferring documents overseas. 2. I think you may try some fax software. It has lots of function than the windows fax. Though internet fax service seems very convenient and costs litter, I think it is much safer to have your own fax number. Also, if you want to fax when there is no internet, what can you do? Additional answer: It can also be a problem with the type of phone line you're using - a VoIP phone line can be problematic with fax as the two essentialy aren't compatible.

Main advantage of the fax is the conveniency. If you have a document you need to sign, sign it, then fax it!For many companies, fax is much more secured than mails. It can't be hacked.There is also the confirmation status of your faxes. You can know whether if your recepients got your fax or not. You can't know that with emails.There is also lots of disadvantages with fax machine.First, you need to have the machine. If you don't have it, you'll have to go in a print shop each time you need to fax something. Depends on your use.If you decide to own a fax machine, you'll have to feed it with paper and ink. You might also need to take it sometimes to the doctor (ok, technical service). Also, you don't choose what you receive. It's not very ecological, especially if most of your received fax and unwanted.Also, might be important in some cases, it's mostly still a black & white service. But if you need to use fax, know that online fax service are here to remove many of the disadvantages listed above.

A: My personal preference is Internet fax. It's cheaper (since you don't have to pay for the equipment, paper, toner, etc) And easier to use when you're on the road. You also don't need a dedicated phone line, which is a HUGE plus for me.B: I choose neither. I prefer to using fax software. I have using Joyfax server for one year and I always think that it is safer to fax with my own fax number. I am afraid that lots of internet fax service offers the fax numbers that have been used by other people.If the fax means a lot to you, just consider some fax software.If you just want to send one or two faxes, the internet fax service seems more convenient.C: Here are a few more reasons why you should use a secure Internet fax service rather than a fax machine:Incoming faxes do not sit on publically-available fax machines.Fax machines print out on paper which could get into the wrong hands if not properly destroyed or securely hid away.Anyone can print out additional copies of faxes on a fax machine.With secure internet fax notifications are sent to recipients inbox with link to that specific fax.With some secure internet fax services users to have a complete end-to-end audit trail of all fax activity.

if it is an SD card, sometimes it needs to be gently pushed in a little bit then it will pop back out on its own.

A: Yes, you can if you have a fax software installed in your PC or a when you subscribe for internet fax service. B: That is right, you can fax from your PC with a fax software or using some online fax service. However, I prefer to using a fax software, since it is more safe. You just use your own fax number to fax. You can just google fax software, or joyfax server, the one I have been using for one year. Just some suggestion..hope it works for you..
