If you want a dedicated fax line, you'd need to have Premier (so you can have 2 numbers), assign one of the numbers to your Hub or Telo. To use the voice line, you'd need 1 or more Telo handsets or Scouts (if you have a Hub).
I prefer to subscribe to an eFax service; OneSuite in my case; as little as $1 per month for unlimited incoming faxes... and for that price, they provide a dedicated fax number. See, http://www.onesuite.com/products_onesuitefax.aspmmbucwa wrote:I want to know how can I have a fax line feature with my Ooma telo.
If this option exists I will appreciate to add it.
Since I do send outgoing faxes occasionally, I opted for the $2.95/mo. service. Since October, 2009, my total cost has averaged less than $4 per month. There has been one other member of this forum who was not happy with OneSuite, but so far, he is the only dissatisfied customer to my knowledge.
I have repeated a similar message several times over the last year or so. See:
and twice here (got to watch those double posts)
As I see it, Ooma would be wasting time, money and effort if they were to develope an efax system to complement their phone systems. I would rather they dedicate their time to perfecting their existing products, including the mobile app.
I've learned a lot here... two months ago I didn't even know how to spell VOIP and now I are one.
Do you mean , I can have a fax line hooking up to my exixsting Ooma phone number.oom101 wrote:Are you wanting another fax line, or just hook up a fax to your existing Ooma?

I was making sure what you wanted since you said fax line.
So you want a fax on the one Ooma box.
There is a fax setting for the Ooma, and several people have had to set their fax down to a slower transmission setting to get it to work, but it seems that they were able to do it. Try searching posts about "ooma fax", etc.
You would plug the fax into the wall line that is plugged into your OOma phone line, or use a splitter to plug the phone and fax into the Ooma. The guy above was describing how to put the fax on a second phone number on the Ooma.
If you just want one number shared between the phone and fax, or just fax, I don't think you need Premier.
