One fax successfully SENT. My sign of relief is enormous. Now to see if I can send.

This feature request has been requested before. My position is unchanged. I would prefer that Ooma continue to do what it does best... provide quality VOIP service.9204wilson wrote:Ooma needs to integrate a fax service to its list of premier features. For example, I would like to use one of my two phone numbers to recieve faxes in addition to voice calls. Rather then print the fax out from a fax machine, I would rather have the fax turned into a PDF and emailed to me and/or made available for downloaded from "My Ooma." Then, I can save it to my computer, print it or forward it to by email to whomever I wish. Currently with a fax machine connected to Ooma, if I am away from home, I cannot get the faxes because they are sitting printed tray of the fax machine. But, if they were emailed to me, I would be able to get them in my email.
I am sure that the Telo can determine the difference between a voice call and a fax. Then, if it is a fax being received, there could be a distintive ring notifying of the inbound fax so the call is not answered. Or, don't even have the telephone ring, just have a fax sent to email. There really is no need for the phone to ring. I would think that with Ooma's great engineering knowlege, this would be easy to implement. And, what a nice extra selling feature for the product.
