Customer Question
We're just wondering about...

We're just wondering about the fax. If we want to receive a fax do we have a certain fax number we need to use? Or would we just use our home phone number? Thank you.

Technician's Assistant: Are your device's other functions (printing, copying, scanning, etc.) working fine?

Yes.

Technician's Assistant: When did this fax issue begin?

My husband wants to have medical records faxed here and we're not sure if there's a different fax number then our home phone.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

That's it.

Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer support, thank you for utilizing our service.
I will be assisting you today.

If you have a fax machine you can connect the landline phone to the fax machine and you dont need a separate phone line for using fax.

your existing phone can be connected to the parallel phone line on the fax.
