I'm using a SonyEricsson T610 for faxing from Panther. It works perfect through Bluetooth. It would be more than nice if I could receive faxes as well. Any ideas?

  • What about receiving faxes through Bluetooth Cellulars

    I just got this giong, works a treat. I was getting exactly the same symptoms as the others listed here - the phone would briefly flash with "Dialing" and then stop. Fixing this was simply a matter of asking my service provider (Orange UK) to enable Fax services on my SIM - you do need to ask for it seperately, even though my phone was already set up and working fine with GPRS.

    Another question here was how to send faxes from the command line. The panther fax service is simply a GUI interface to the following commands.

    To make the fax:

    fax make filename

    this creates a TIFF image of the file, which can be in PDF, text etc. - the files creates are <filename>.001 etc. Then:

    efax -d/dev/cu.Bluetooth-Modem -x/var/spool/lock/LCK..cu.Bluetooth-Modem -vewincf -iZ -i 'E0&D2S7=120&C0M1X4' -oh -l 'yourfaxnonumber' -t destfaxnumber filename>'

    destfaxnumber is in the form of an AT command, so you need a T prefix and no plusses etc., eg

    T02071234567

    Hope that helps. Don't know if I'll ever use it but from a gadget point of view it's great fun.

    Cheers... Mike

      I just called Sony Ericsson directly cause my US service provider (T-Mobile) wasn't able to help me ("Fax services are automaticaly turned on for everyone alread").

      The people I talked to at Sony Ericsson basically said: You can't do outbound faxing from the T610 with bluetooth. Period.

      Any idea what I can do to enjoy the same featuer many of you have enjoyed. All I get right now is the '1-sec. flash of dialing' screen.

        Nevermind. Three more phone calls and two hours later.. they finally figured it out. As stated in other posts here, it's 9.99 a month and you will get another phone number.

        At tT-Mobile pretty much only tier 2 or 3 support can help you with this, so don't spend a lot of time with the first level of support if you can avoid it.

  • Send/Receive via T68i and AT&T

    Has anyone been able to fax via bluetooth on a T68i with AT&T? I've tried setting up a bluetooth modem via the bluetooth serial utility--trying as "fax," "serial port 1" and "serial port 2," but none seemed to work.

    Just curious if anyone has tried this and what they did to get it to work.

    What modem script are you using to fax from your T610? I have the same phone but I can't get it to complete the call. The number flashes on the screen (of the T610) for a second then it disappears. Any help would be appreciated.

      I had to enable data transmission through my cellular provider for me to be able to send faxes through my T610.

        I guess a lot of people would be interested in the set up of the parameters. My search failed so far...

      A friend of mine made a modem script using GPRS Script Generator (http://www.macronsoft.com).

        I bought the software; useless for faxing, dixit your friend!
