usiing ooma to fax

Post by nolaguy » Wed Jul 29, 2009 9:11 pm

do i need to use premier to send a fax? I'm just wondering if i can just hook up my fax to ooma using my ooma number. I dont fax often and use to use via my cable phone service.

No need for Premier but many have found that by having your fax machine dial *99, you will be getting a lower level of compression = better chance of the fax working. Also try to set the maximum connect speed of the fax machine to 9600bps. The phone jack on the hub offers better faxing than does the one on the scout.

And welcome to ooma! :cool:

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
