Sending from the fax machine using a calling (credit) card.


Sending Using a Calling Card

A calling (or credit) card can be used when sending faxes locally, long distance or overseas. Please see the back of the card for instructions on the exact dialing sequence. For instance, dial the toll free number provided by the vendor just as you would to make a regular phone call. If you are prompted to enter the calling card, do so - as you normally would. If a PIN (access code) has to be entered before the fax number is dialed, do so.

Here is an example of the typical number strings used when dialing using a credit card.

Type: Number to dial: Digits:
800 Number 18005551212 11
Calling Card 4011343339849402 16
Access Code 52364 5
Long distance number 15163283111 11
