You cannot fax on BB as it is entirely digital. Faxes work on the old analogue sytem down the phone, you will need your old dial up modem (V90) to fax.

I think that like me, you intended to use your old modem but find that it has been disabled.

Not really understanding the wiles and ways of any sort of modem and failing to get any joy with Windows Fax, I fiddled about with redundant "Super Voice", an old version of which came originally with my old modem.....It worked after a bit of coaxing, though I'm sorry I can't give you blow by blow. It certainly did not affect by BB connection.

All this for the sake of sending or receiving now about 2 faxes per year!
