    Can I send/receive faxes over my GSM Treo or cellphone?
    GSM networks include: Cingular (US), Orange (Europe), etc.


    Yes, though you may need to order fax service for your GSM account. A data plan (what you use for email and web access) is NOT a fax service plan. On GSM networks, voice, fax and data calls are all treated separately. Everyone has voice service, but may or may not have fax and data service.

    Fax and data service is often referred to as CSD service. You may already have it, or you may need to order it from your carrier, usually for a nominal fee. When you add data and fax CSD service to your account, you now technically have 3 phone numbers, one each for receiving voice, data and fax calls. Sometimes carriers don't tell you what your new numbers are, so be sure to ask when ordering.

    When adding the new numbers to your phone, your SIM card may have to be updated to tell your phone that it can answer on the new numbers as well, so ask your carrier. The new numbers are for incoming calls; if you are only sending faxes, you don't actually need to know the new numbers.




    Can I send/receive faxes over my CDMA Treo or cellphone?
    CDMA networks include: Sprint (US), Verizon (US), Bell Mobility (CA), , Alltel(US), Cellular South(US), etc.


    Yes, though you may need to order fax service for your CDMA account. A data plan (what you use for email and web access) is NOT a fax service plan. CDMA modems work much like a standard fax/data modem. To send a fax, just send away. To receive a fax, simply hit Receive and CS Fax will take the next call as a fax call.

    You may or may not need a fax service plan with your CDMA provider. For example, with Sprint, their fax service is called "Wireless Web" service and if you don't have it on your account, you can use it anyhow and are billed a casual-use rate. With Verizon, fax minutes are just part of your plan minutes. Carriers are constantly changing plans and pricing so check with your carrier for specifics.

    Your link is dated almost a month earlier on Sat Jan 14, 2006 6:01 pm

    Did you post the right link there Gfunk ? Or were they just vreal slkow in gettin tat notice up

    Frankly it's an interesting program but of very limited suage to me.....as I will normally say "e-mail it rather than fax". For $10-$15 it might be worth grabbing but I'd have to burn a lotat quartes a kinkos and hitel lobbies ot cover the $50 for this program.

    When I called Kinko's last week, they were charging $2 for the first page plus $1.50 for every following page, so CS Fax pays for itself just in the fax charges pretty darn quick.

    Then there's that little thing about not needing to go to Kinkos, but rather just faxing where you are. That has a cash value to some people.

    The link to that thread is for the OTA download which is where you can download the latest betas...

    IMO this is a nice option for when you need to make or receive an emergency fax and when web based fax services are not an option for you. Sprint charges $0.40 cents per minute for dial up charges, but this is still cheaper than going to various document centers etc...

    I never been on a kinko's myself. My only need has been the occassional hotel lobby and most often they don't bother to charge if you good customer and you ain't faxing 40 pages. But, most importantly, since my fax machine in the office broke, I didn't replace it. I take faxes thru my laptop on occassion but for the most part, e-mail has replaced the fax....mush easier to mark up and more useful as I can plop the info into whatever I am writing.
