I contacted the folks at MagicJack today and for faxes they confirm your findings. They suggest the following:
We do not officially support using faxing with MagicJack. Please try the following steps to use MagicJack with your fax (contact your fax vendor for details):
- turn off error correction on your fax machine or program
- set the fax machine or program to use the slowest speed available
- increase the speed, checking at each speed that faxes work
The change must come through your fax machine, not the MJ.
is a link to the manual for your fax machine.
If you are having problems sending or
receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the phone line, we recommend that you
adjust the Equalization for compatibility to
reduce the modem speed for fax operations.
a Press Menu
b Press a
to choose Normal (or
Basic reduces the modem speed to
9600 bps. Unless interference is a
recurring problem on your phone
line, you may prefer to use it only
Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps. (Default)
c Press Stop/Exit
When you change the compatibility to
Basic, the ECM feature is only available
for color fax sending.
There are only 2 speed settings. Since the MJ does not support faxing, if the slower 9600 bps does not work, you will be unable to fax with the MJ.
Thanks for using FixYa - A FixYa rating is appreciated!!
