Faxing in Panther
Subject:   What about receiving faxes through Bluetooth Cellulars

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?

    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/ -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


    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

  • 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.
