Torch as fax modem

[ Edited ]

Hello dear all,

 

I have a torch 9800 and I would like to use it as fax-modem to send-out faxes from Windows application "Microsoft Fax and Scan".

 

My BB seems to be correctly installed as "Standard Modem", and it works perfectly when I make a phone call from PC through "dialer.exe". In this case, when the PC sends the call, I can see the number at the BB screen as in a regular call.

However, when I try to send a fax from Microsoft Fax and Scan, there is absolutely no sign of communication at the BB screen, and I get the following message: "unexpected error"

 

I'm using Windos 7 (64) Home Premium.

Blackberry Desktop Stofware 7.1

Blackberry device software 6.0

 

I have sent faxes many times before with my old sonyericsson, so I can't understand what's going on with BB. I believe I need a special driver?

PLEASE DO NOT SUGGEST INTERNET FAX LIKE EFAX, WHAT I NEED IS TO FAX THROUGH GSM.

 

Many thanks in advance for your help.

 

Kindest regards,

Re: Torch as fax modem

FaxMind Email to Fax Server is a powerful fax server that enables you to send and receive fax by email from Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Mobile phone Devices(iPhone, iPad, Android), which is often called Email to Fax and Fax to Email services. FaxMind Server will fetch email messages regularly from a number of POP3 accessible mailboxes, automatically converts into faxable image format based on your email contents and attachments (including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Adobe PDF documents), then fax them out. Inbound faxes, voices or fax transmission reports will be sent via SMTP server and SMS messages. FaxMind Printer drivers enable you to print directly from any Windows application and have the resulting document faxed to anyone anywhere.
