Can I use a pre-paid calling card to send a fax?

    Yes. To send a fax this way, you'll need to connect an external telephone to the product's EXT port. To send the fax, see the instructions below.

    Dialing Fax Numbers from a Connected Telephone

    If you have connected a telephone to the EXT port on your product, you can send a fax by dialing the fax number from the connected telephone.
    1. Place your original on the product for faxing.
    2. Press the  home button, if necessary.
    3. Select Fax.


    4. Dial the fax number from the connected telephone.

      Note: If you are using a pre-paid calling card, enter the number and password required to use the card before entering the destination fax number.

    5. Select Send on the LCD screen.

      Note: Your product now communicates with the recipient's fax machine. Do not hang up the telephone.

    6. If you need to change any fax settings, scroll down and select your settings.

      Note: If your recipient's fax machine does not print in color, your fax is automatically sent in black-and-white.

    7. Press the  Start button. If prompted, select where you placed your document (ADF or scanner glass).

      Note: To cancel faxing, select Cancel.

      Your product scans your original and prompts you to place additional pages, if necessary.
    8. Hang up the telephone.

    After scanning your originals, your product sends the fax.
