can HP fax/printer "dial out" through 7130 or later model?

I own a Blackberry 7130 and have no land-line phone at my office. I have suppliers who only receive orders via fax or mail. Is there a solution to connect my HP 5500 fax/printer to the 7130 and "dial out", sending the fax?

 

If not, is there a newer model with which this functionality is possible?

 

Thanks in advance,

Richard

Hi Richard and welcome to the forums!

 

There are tons of free email to fax services out on the internet, just Google them.

There isn't a specific model of Blackberry that will address sending faxes.

Thanks,

Bifocals,

Thanks for your reply, but it does not address my question.

 

To clarify, here is how a fax works with a land-line phone:

(my fax machine) -> (land-line phone) -> (receiver's fax machine)

 

Here is my question:

(my fax machine) -> (SOLUTION NEEDED) -> (my cell phone) -> (receiver's fax machine)

HI,

 

The Answer is: NO.

 

 

But there are heaps of other options to be able to  sedn faxes fomr the BB.

 

Print2Fax is a peice of software that allows you to send a recieved email/attachment as a fax through a third party company.
