8330 as a tethered fax/modem

I have been able to use virtually every previous cellular phone as a tethered fax/modem to my PC.  I am not wanting to use it for Internet access - but, rather to send faxes.

I have tried several different methods.  None of which work.  Most threads detail using the 8330 to connect to the Internet.

 

Any suggestions on how I can use this to send faxes from my PC?

 

Thanks!

Re: 8330 as a tethered fax/modem

These packages seem to fax from the Blackberry to an Internet Fax server...not using the Blackberry as a fax/modem.  The LG I had you could plug into the PC and it would be recognized as a Fax/modem device and faxes could be sent from Outlook, or a Fax program.

 

That is what I am trying to do.

Re: 8330 as a tethered fax/modem

I have a similar situation.  I am trying to connect to remote router that is connected to a USRobotics modem through a regular phone line.  Is it posible to use my BOLD like a true modem to call the USR and start a terminal session?  I am interested in connecting to an Internet provider's APN.

Re: 8330 as a tethered fax/modem

I finally was able to talk to a technician at Verizon.  He said the Storm is the only Blackberry that can be used as a fax/modem.  True or not, it slows my search.  Don't necessarily want a Storm, and don't fax too often.

Re: 8330 as a tethered fax/modem

Hi there,

Did you get any solution to this problem?

I have the same situation:

Triying to use my torch 9800 as a fax/modem to send faxes to land lines through "Windows Fax and Scan" application.

Apparently WFS can't communicate with my torch 9800 to make the fax call.

Many thanks in advance
