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 number from the connected telephone. If the recipient's phone number and fax number are the same, you can speak to the recipient before sending the fax.
    1. Place your original on the product for faxing.

      Note: You can send up to 100 pages in a single transmission.

    2. Pick up the handset of the connected phone.
    3. Select Send and dial the fax number from the connected telephone. Speak to the recipient if necessary.

      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.

    4. Press the OK button and select your fax settings.
    5. When you hear a fax tone, press one of the Start buttons to start sending the fax.
    6. Hang up the telephone.

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