Can anyone recommend Fax software that I can load onto my XDA II to enable it to sebd and receive faxes? I have a fax number that I had with Orange but O2 do not have the same facilities for fax so I have had to put the number on permanent divert to my home fax. Not good as I cannot read them when I am out on the road working. O2 refused to tell me any fax software as they cannot endorse any companies other than O2, and as O2 do not do the software I am stuffed! Any ideas?

You can download it and install it simply. It won't wipe anything. When sending a fax, the telephone function is automatically suspended, and, when finished, it goes on again. Sometimes, while sending a fax, the system hangs so you need to make a simple soft reset.

Why we need a fax number from provider?

Why we cannot use a standard gsm number?

Anybody knows another software capable to receive faxes without a special fax number?

I beleive you can't fax directly over GSM because it's a completely different set of communication protocols to fax. It's analogue for a start. GSM modems don't know about fax carrier signals etc. What happens when you get a fax number from yoyur provuder is this number goes to a box at your phone provider, which accepts fax protocols and converts things to go via a GSM data channel to your phone.

I wonder if a completely software fax solution would be possible, ie it opens the GSM audio stream and provides a software based implementation of fax comms. Probably impossible as even though anlogue fax and GSM audio are similar bandwidth (9.6Kbps) the GSM audio codec is geared to voice so wouldn't represent the fax singnal adequately.

Fax tones are specifically designed to work over voice systems....

(300 to 3.4K)

as these are the set limitations of earlier Telephone Transmission systems....(4 meg fdm & pcm)



Don't know a lot about GSM though..... :?
