10.4: Enable fax send/receive via Bluetooth Network
Tiger only hintI found (with some help from the AppleCare guys) a way to use my mobile phone to send and receive faxes over Bluetooth. The purpose is to add the Bluetooth modem port to the faxes list.

Here are the steps:
  1. In System Preferences, go to Print & Fax
  2. Open the Printer Browser (click "+" in the Printing tab)
  3. Option-click on "More Printers"
  4. Select "Advanced" in the popup list
  5. Select "Bluetooth-modem" from the "Device" popup that appears
  6. Select "Other" from the "Printer Model" menu
  7. In the "Choose file" dialog go to System>Library -> Frameworks -> ApplicationServices.framework -> Frameworks -> PrintCore.framework -> Resources -> English.lproj -> Fax.ppd. Note that you can replace English.lproj with the language of your choice.
  8. Finally, click Add
Now in your fax list, you have a brand new Bluetooth modem fax. I tested this in 10.4.1 and .2, and it works seamlessly with my Motorola V3 (both sending and receiving) and my Siemens SX1 (tried only sending).

10.4: Enable fax send/receive via Bluetooth
Authored by: nukethis on Jul 22, '05 11:03:27AM

I tried this hint with my Motorola v710(verizon, old firmware). Looks like this hint worked for setting it up, the computer dials out, connects to the fax machine, but it disconnects while it sends the fax. From looking at the fax that it received, it only got the first 2 inches of the fax. Any fixes?

Authored by: galgot on Jul 22, '05 12:49:05PM

In 10.4.2, when you Print you have a button with an option to 'Fax PDF...'. Your fax list with be in the next dialog.

I was able to setup the fax printer and the computer connects with my phone but then immediately disconnects and the fax is set to send 5 mins later. Is there a log file somewhere of what is going wrong? Would there be a setting in the phone that has to be changed or does this only work with certain carriers? I have a Nokia 6820 and am with Rogers.

Does anyone know if this hint works with a SonyEricsson T637 and Cingular service. I heard that the fax send and receive functionality could be controled by your carrier and turned off on your phone's sim chip. Does anyone have any insight on this? Thanks in advance.

10.4: Enable fax send/receive via Bluetooth
Authored by: merosen on Jul 22, '05 08:05:56PM

I can't get this to work on Cingular on Moto V551
I can create the BT Modem on my IBook
Dials and then puts the job on hold - no send
I tried this
1. Turn on BT on v551
2. I go the "talk then fax menu in the "settings--- incall setup" menu
and turn this on for next calll only-- then try and fax
3. From the PDF Menu instead of the print menu
- Fax PDF - you have to do this because a fax machine receives/sends images - not text files
4. Up Comes a dialog box with the printer as the BT modem
I can add phone # cover sheet etc
5. Then I fax the PDF
6. the phone screen says Dialing the person--- and then
the messaage "not subscribed"

I seem to remeber trying to do this thru a cable and the serial port utility
I may be wrong --- but if I remember correctly - from my research -- cingular does not support fax---
Thus the message "not subscribed"
I wonder what carrier the orignal poster is using

10.4: Enable fax send/receive via Bluetooth
Authored by: mozart11 on Jul 22, '05 01:52:32PM

Same here on my V3. Setup procedure goes fine per the Hint. But can't fax. If I select Print from File menu, the only option I have is under the PDF button to Send PDF. And I'm pretty sure this can't work. Isn't the Print Button supposed to turn to a Fax Button?

If I select the Fax PDF, my AL PowerBook with builtin Bluetooth connects to the phone and the phone shows the number and begins to dial. But the just stops abruptly.

I bet there needs to be something on the cell phone end. I'm on Cingular. I bet Cingular doesn't support this type of connection.

I'm very skeptical this hint works.

Authored by: newbish on Jul 24, '05 08:44:46PM

Actually, I believe the issue is you must have fax/data service activated in your Cingular account for this to work.

The symptom is my V3 will go so far as to flash on its screen that it is about to dial, and then the connection ends. For those who are a bit more patient than others, you will notice that the computer continues to attempt to make the call several times before the fax expires.

Doesn't seem to work on a PB using a D-Link DBT-120 bluetooth dongle and a SonyEricsson P800. At step 5 there is no 'bluetooth modem' in the drop down list. (Using the dongle to bluetooth to the phone works for everything else, iSync, BluePhoneElite, Salling Clicker, etc).

Modem Scripts
Authored by: amulz on Jul 22, '05 04:01:09PM

I can't get my Moto v515 to work. I did some poking around elsewhere and found that people needed to download some other modem scripts.

Here's the site that I found with the scripts, but they don't work for me.
http://www.taniwha.org.uk/

Also, the modem seems to have a "do not dial if there is no dialtone." I got rid of that but still no luck. This shows up in two places, under the System Preferences -> Network -> bluetooth -> bluetooth modem, and in the Fax modem dialog (the pulldown menu that shows "Fax Cover Page") when you try to fax through print.

I see the phone dialing like some others have, but all I hear from the phones earpiece is a busy signal. I can redial the same number and phone and it connects.

who is your service provider? I followed the instruction and everything seems to be working correctly until the phone dials out, and then it fails. Someone mentioned that since I have Verizon, I have to pay for the $15/monthly DUN fee.

there are 2 kind of connections possible on you phone: GPRS and the old way Data/Fax. So if you are able to use GPRS, does this not mean that for your account Data/Fax is enabled. You should contact your provider wich should be able to enable this feature on you account.

Authored by: C172Pilot on Jul 22, '05 07:32:55PM

Agree with most of you. iMac G4 (1ghz) with a Bluetooth dongle. Finds the dongle just fine. Bluetooth modem shows up in the menu item. It even adds to the fax modem list. Dials the V551 Motorola Phone. I can hear the phone make the 'not dialed properly' tone in the phone, then it hangs waiting again to dial. It's a bloody shame, because it would be neat to send faxes from the phone. I also have Stinkular and I'm not sure it's them as much as something in the phone. Seems to be missing some bluetooth connection protocol to make a bluetooth phone dialer.

10.4: Enable fax send/receive via Bluetooth
Authored by: Interactive on Jul 22, '05 09:55:03PM
I own Sony-Ericsson T637 and T68i. So, I decided to try out the original hint. It did not work, but the results were not the same.

T637
On the Mac side, the Bluetooth-Modem launches but gets stuck with the message Waiting for modem to become available. On the phone side, Bluetooth connection is never established. Hence, no dialing.

T68i
On the Mac side, the Bluetooth-Modem launches and shows the message Dialing. But, it prematurely goes into a holding mode. On the phone side, Bluetooth connection is established and the phone dials the fax number specified in the Fax window on the Mac. But, since the Mac side prematurely goes into the holding mode, the phone terminates the dialing as well.

I have read somewhere that T68i has build-in support for fax, whereas T637 does not. This makes sense, because the T68i Manual has a page on faxing, whereas the T637 manual does not.

One earlier poster states that he was successful with T610. Since T637 is so similar to it, it is a bit odd that the hint does not work with it.

10.4: Enable fax send/receive via Bluetooth
Authored by: rspeed on Jul 22, '05 10:26:24PM

I have a T610.

At first bluetooth-modem wasn't showing up in the printer setup. Figuring it was a serial port issue I just ran the bluetooth setup assistant on my phone again and re-added it. The serial port now showed up in /dev/ but still not in the printer setup until I restarted the printer services (I suppose a restart would have worked as well).

Anyway, everything seemed to be working well, but when I try to fax the phone wakes up and the fax is immediately delayed 5 minutes. If I attempt to resume, a message reading "The process 'fax' stopped unexpectedly with status 2" then fails again. Anyone else having this problem?

Call your carrier. Watch out for your bill!
Authored by: thornrag on Jul 23, '05 01:18:31PM

Make no mistake: your wireless provider knows what kind of calls you make on your mobile phone, whether it's voice, data, or even fax. With Sprint, my plan charges me 45 cents per minute for "incidental" usage when I make a fax or modem call. With T-Mobile, I was flatly informed that I would not be able to send faxes with my phone because they simply did not offer the service.

So if you're having trouble, make sure your plan supports it. If you're not having trouble, make sure you're not being billed out the ass.

T-Mobile claims they do offer the fax service.
Authored by: rdewald on Aug 03, '05 07:11:44PM

I just spent about an hour being transferred between different departments at T-Mobile, I finally found someone who knew that it is necessary to have the "CSD Option" enabled on the account to use a BlueTooth modem as a fax device. The service is $9.99/month, you get a phone number (different from your voice number) for *receiving* faxes and you can also get a phone number to receive data calls, should you desire such a thing (I didn't).

The provisioning takes 2-48 hours (GPRS provisioning took the full 48 about a month ago). I have a Motorola V330, I've been using the BlueTooth modem for a GPRS data connection for about a month with no problems, I'll report back what happens with the CSD fax service.

10.4: Enable fax send/receive via Bluetooth
Authored by: cudaboy_71 on Jul 25, '05 01:49:51PM

no dice with a nokia 6600. on a 12"pb w/ built-in bluetooth and 10.4.1 the fax printer installed per the instructions just fine. made a simple textedit document and tried fax to pdf to a real fax machine sitting right beside me.

the job spooled fine to the que but errored out.

with 10.4 the 6600 now requires a special app called 'isync manager' to be installed on the phone to make the sync connection. in 10.3 it did not require this. i even tried to 'prime the pump' by performing an iSync connection just prior to sending the fax. the sync worked fine. so, my initial theory is that this on-phone application is not aware of a modem connection??? *shrug*

if anyone gets a 6600 to fax via 10.4 please post back.

tonight i guess i'll attempt a fax connection with my 10.3 machine and the d-link dongle and the 6600.

Authored by: krove on Jul 25, '05 07:30:45PM

This Apple support doc has the same information as this hint.

There is no information provided as to what service (T-Mobile, Cingular, Verizon, etc...) is required to use this feature or if this feature (faxing via bluetooth) is even limited to a particular service.

It would be helpful if the author of the hint or those that have got it to work would post which service they are using. I just spoke to Cingular and their front end customer support reps have no information about faxing via bluetooth. He even called the tech support desk, and they have no information about faxing via bluetooth?!? I asked if it was a service that could be activated on my account, but they were all clueless. Go figure...

If anyone else comes across information about faxing via bluetooth for Cingular customers, please do post here. :-)

10.4: Enable fax send/receive via Bluetooth
Authored by: cudaboy_71 on Jul 26, '05 11:37:26AM

i think you probably just confused them. bluetooth is just the data link between the phone and the computer. the service provider (t-mobile, Sprint, etc.) has no authority or control over that link. (i still use my T68i from an old AT&T contract to link with bluetooth for use as a remote control unit though there is no phone number or outside service to the phone).

what you may need to find out is if you can fax over their lines once the call is made (and if there is an additional charge). but, that has zero to do with bluetooth and everything to do with the connection of the phone to the carrier's network just as if you had manually dialed the number to a fax line.

I was very explicit in explaining the problem and originally did include bluetooth in my questioning, but eventually realized the point you made and wondered if Cingular supported faxing from any of their phones. They (customer support and whomever was reached at technical support) did not know. Their web site offers no other information either.

T-Mobile/V330/10.4.2 :: it works
Authored by: rdewald on Aug 03, '05 09:46:02PM

I have an iBook G4, Tiger 10.4.2, a Motorola v330, and a T-Mobile account. I have been using GPRS over BlueTooth for an Internet connection, and iSync-ing contacts/calendar entries, for about a month now.

After playing "stump the T-Mobile rep" for about an hour, getting bumped up and down the support ladder and between various departments, I finally learned that at T-Mobile one must have the "CSD-option" (Carrier-Switched Data) enabled on the account ($9.99/month) in order to be able to send/receive faxes.

Once provisioned, however, you get a phone number both for incoming faxes (different from your voice number), and for incoming data connections (over the CSD pipe), and this can be active concurrently with your GPRS pipe.

It works outgoing, I've tested it. I have not testing the incoming side yet, that's not really important for my particular application (I am a home care nurse who regularly needs to fax information from patient homes). If I test the incoming side, I'll reply to this thread with my results.

T-Mobile/V330/10.4.2 :: it works
Authored by: cpetrosky on Nov 04, '05 07:38:41AM

iMac G4, bluetooth dongle, Motorola v330 phone, T-Mobile.

Regarding t-mobile - the CSD option was discontinued Oct 22, 2005. Two reps claimed that if your cellular phone actually contains a fax modem, and you are able to connect to it (either with Bluetooth or an optional data cable) then you should be able to fax successfully.

That has NOT been the case for me. However, I have been using the GPRS internet connection successfully over Bluetooth for almost a month now, and may consider using one of the email to fax services, if I can't get the bluetooth faxmodem to work.

ditto

tried this on a cingular SLVR L7 and all I get was the waiting for modem response. Looks like I'm not giving up my fax machine yet.

how to actually receive?
Authored by: option8 on Nov 01, '06 09:58:49AM

i've used this hint to successfully set up my verizon motorola e815 to send faxes, which has made my life infinitely easier (selling a house these days still seems to require a fax machine be permanently implanted)

however, i cannot for the life of me seem to get the bugger to receive faxes.

i have it set up in the fax preferences as "bluetooth modem" and the computer is set to receive, but how do i get the phone talking to the computer so it recognizes an incoming call and answers it? is there a "pairing" step that i'm missing when the incoming fax rings the phone?

For Cingular users you will need this add-on to your plan.
WIRELESS FAX $3.99/month

Dunno about receiving, Ive never managed to receive a fax either via bluetooth or USB.
T637 and ROKR E1

Forget about help from tech support or anyone else, they all deny the ability to send a fax eventhough the charge is in front of them.

The charge with this plan is NOT a data charge, it is a per-minute basis, just like ordering a pizza.
