Will my fax really still work?

Post by sleepyheadkc » Thu Jul 12, 2012 4:06 pm

We were gifted a Telo several months ago, but I've been hesitant to switch over to it because I'm afraid I'll lose my ability to fax. We have a Canon multifunction printer with fax capability (MX870), and my wife depends on occasional faxing -- both inbound and outbound -- for her business.

Am I being overly cautious here? What is the likelihood that Ooma won't be able to support our faxing capability?

If you have it up and running, try it using dialing prefixes *99, *98.

We've had an Ooma Telo for about 3 years now and have never had any issue faxing from one of several multi-function machines we've had in the house over that period of time. We don't even have to dial a prefix like *99 or *98 either. We just fax and it works, both incoming and outgoing. Good luck!

I have an old Brother fax machine which I could not get to work with Ooma. I just tried again using the suggestion to add a pause after the *98 and was able to successfully connect to the HP fax line and received the fax response successfully.
