    Question:
    I do not wish to use the internet to fax.
    Is there anyway to use my PC, tethered to my wireless phone to send a fax to a landline fax. Basically, can a wireless phone handle data exchange to another fax machine? Thanks, Mike

    Does your wireless phone have a built-in modem that supports fax?

    Thats the main limitation.

    My Nokia 3650 does have a modem and supports fax.
    But we have no idea what your phone is.

    As far as I know, all the Win OS have a built in faxer. I know my friends Win 95 machine had one, and I have one I use in XP.

    Yes, Windows does have a faxing application.
    But the issue is does the mobile phone has a modem to support the fax.
