Anyone know the purpose of "enable fax mode"?

"fax mode" can be set by *99 on a per call basis. Seems like this feature enables the *99 mode on a line for all calls.

I'm guessing this feature was requested/designed to be used with a dedicated fax line? Any other reason?

It makes fax mode possible for incoming fax calls.
It gets rid of the hum that many hear between words.

For some reason, I can't remember, I thought incomming fax is not an issue and only outgoing fax needed to have *99.

Wasn't this the case?

I think it might be an issue with the Ooma Telo, but not the Ooma Hub.

That's interesting, I didn't know that .

I thought the main difference between the Hub and Telos was the Scout vs Handset, Quality improvement over handset to handset and DTMF pass through. Based on this I didn't think it affected incoming faxes.

I have the hub but on Myooma, I have the option to enable the "fax mode". I would think this option would not be available.
