How do I fax using a cell phone and bluetooth?


Hi Gail

It's a little challenging as you need to configure a few things between your phone and the fax. These steps are basically one of doing it, but, I would resort to using the old fashion way! :-)

How to Fax Wirelessly Wireless faxing is easier today than it has ever been before. Whether you're faxing wirelessly from a tablet, smartphone, or computer, wireless faxing is pretty much as easy as sending an email.
There are three broad ways to wirelessly send a fax:
  • Use your cellular network
  • Use Wi-Fi
  • Wirelessly connect to a fax machine via Bluetooth or your wireless network
We're going to break down each of these faxing options down below and explain everything you need to know about wireless faxing.
Wirelessly Faxing Over your Cellular Wireless If you're trying to fax from your smartphone or tablet, then you're likely going to be faxing over a cellular connection.
There's only one way to fax over a cellular connection: online faxing.
Online faxing services act as a virtual fax machine. You communicate with this fax machine over the internet. That fax machine receives emails for you and sends them to your inbox. Then, you email the fax machine whenever you want to send a fax to a recipient.
With online faxing, there's really no restriction to the number of wireless devices you can use. As long as your device has an internet connection and the ability to send an email, you'll have no trouble wirelessly faxing over your cellular wireless network.
Aside from online faxing, there are no other ways to wirelessly fax over your cellular wireless network. You can't turn your mobile device into a modem. There's also no smartphone software that transforms your mobile device into a fax machine hardware platform.
Put simply, you can't receive faxes over the same number as your cell phone. It's impossible.
Using Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) to Send a Fax Using wireless internet (Wi-Fi) to send a fax is as straightforward as sending it over a cellular connection.
The best option is to use online faxing. Online faxing lets you send a fax over Wi-Fi as easy as sending an email.
You sign up for an computer fax provider, then send an email just as you would normally send an email. Here's a quick step by step guide:
Step 1) Pick an online fax provider and sign up
Step 2) Compose a new email over Wi-Fi as you normally would send an email
Step 3) In the recipient section, type the fax number of your recipient followed by the online address of your fax provider, like by typing [email protected]
Step 4) Add a cover letter to your fax by typing something into the body of the email
Step 5) Click "Send" after you've verified all of the information is complete.
That's it! You've just sent a fax over Wi-Fi using an electronic faxing service. If you're only sending a small number of faxes, then you might not even have to pay for faxing - many providers offer free trials or let you send a small number of faxes for free.
Alternatively, if you don't want to use online faxing, then you may be able to connect to your wireless fax machine over your Wi-Fi network (provided you're both connected to the same home or office network).
Some multi-purpose printers (with scan, copy, fax, and print capabilities) will have wireless connectivity.
Both fax machines and multi-purpose printers will also sometimes have Bluetooth functionality, which means you can connect to those devices outside of your wireless network.
Use a Fax Machine with A Wireless or Cellular Connection Some fax machines can connect to your home's wireless network over Wi-Fi, or they can connect to your computer over Bluetooth.
However, some fax machines go beyond this and connect to a cellular network on their own. These wireless fax machines are physical fax machines that have a dedicated cell phone connection.
These machines also go by names like GSM fax machines or CDMA fax machines, depending on the type of network they use.
If you use a wireless fax machine like this, then your fax machine will have a separate fax number and cellular service account. Faxes are sent and received over the cellular network just as they would be received using a traditional fax machine.
This type of wireless fax machine is ideal for situations where you don't have a phone line but have good cell service. These fax machines require a strong cellular connection, as any static or loss of quality on the connection may prevent the fax from being accurately transmitted.
These are all the ways to send and receive a fax wirelessly!

Can my Wf-7620 printer work without connecting it to a phone line? Because I've installed the ink cartridges but the printer won't go to the next step!


If you're setting up the fax part of the printer then yes it will need a dial tone. If you have a look in the manual, there should be the details on how to set up without a phone line or a way to disable the fax machine.

It answers for a second and then disconnects the call.


Make sure the phone line is ANALOG. DSL makes fax machines go nuts.

Resetting the phone number currently displayed on the top of the page


On your fax control panel, press the MENU button. Choose either INITIAL SET-UP or FAX SET-UP, from the display. You should be able to scroll through the settings until you come to either HEADER, TITLE, NAME, STATION ID., or PHONE NUMBER. You can then use the number and letter keys to change the title and phone number.

MP730 fax issue-can't receive fax, but can send out


I think I know why. You need to set the proper priority of your all-in-one Canon device.
If it is TEL priority, it means you need to have a phone connected to the fax. If the phone rings, you need to pick up the handset and check if it's a fax tone or a call. If it is fax tone, you wait for 5 secs til fax tone stops, and then hang up. After that you will receive the fax. Failure to pick up the handset will not allow you to receive the fax. This might be the most probable setting you have, hence you can't receive the fax.
If it is FAX priority, the same thing happens as TEL priority. Only difference is if you don't pick up, and it is a fax, it will still receive.
You can also do FAX only. No need to connect a phone. Device will receive automatically.

Doesnt Know How To Use Fax


Very easy. Make sure you have a phone cord plugged from the wall to a port in the back of the machine marked "line". Place you document in the feed, dial the fax number of the other machine and press start. Your machine will dial the other machine, make some beeping noises then scan your document. If it feeds through ok, and you do not get an error message in the display, then it has been sent!
