Re: Notification when fax arrives
In the 90s, cell phone companies and pager companies use to provide a seperate phone number answered by a computer that you could dial with your computer modem which would page/text a specific device you specified.
Most cell phone companies no longer offer this service.
WinFax/TalkWorks can notify your pager or cellular phone (using SMS messaging) whenever new faxes or voice messages arrive.
WinFax/TalkWorks works with Tone Only, Numeric, Personalized Numeric, and Alphanumeric pagers. To use the pager notification feature, you must know:
1.the capabilities of your pager/cellular phone 2. the telephone numbers WinFax/TalkWorks must dial to connect to your service provider 3. your personal identification number (if your pager supports this feature)

Email messages need to have the email set up correctly through your phone, however there is no set up required for text messages, they just go. Get someone to help you who understand how to set up an email account on a phone. It is not difficult to do, but you do need to get it correct or messages wont send as you have found out..
You can do this one of two ways. Either you can set a universal "Notification Tone" for your phone with the desired song, or you can set a specific notification tone for your particular messaging app.
To set a universal tone (which will play when messages arrive, and for calendar events and other "notification" type events), do this: - Go to your App Drawer and tap Settings - Tap "Sound" - Tap "Notification Ringtone" and select the song you want. If the song doesn't appear in your list, download RingDroid and use it to save the tone as a Notification tone. Basically, you'll just open the sound in RingDroid, tap the menu key and then save it as a notification tone.
If you only want the sound for a particular app, like the default messaging app, you'll need to open that app, tap the menu key, access the Settings menu and look for something like "Notification settings." In the default messaging app, the option is at the bottom of the Settings screen, and you tap "Select ringtone" to choose the sound you want to play when a message arrives.
Click on messaging icon from main menu.
Click send message.
Instead of clicking text message click on pic/video message.
then you have 4 options TO: CONTACTS , TO Mobile#, To Email, And finally To Recent lict. Click on recent list and checkmark all the numbers you want deleted then click options bottom right corner then click delete.....
All finished hope this helps.
