How do I hook up my fax to my cell or satellite internet?

By leali1000 ·
I would like to get rid of my land line which I only use for faxes. Is there a way to hook up my HP Officejet J5780 Fax machine to either my LG Chocolate 2 cell or my PC with Wild Blue satellite Internet?

If you want to fax to a phone number

you'd have to fax over VOIP (like Skype or similar), which doesn't always work, if you hook up to the computer.

Is it correct that this is the VX8550? If so, there is apparently a USB port, but only uses for charging. No mention of data transfer over USB, unless you know different.

So, you would have to connect with BlueTooth to the PC (if the PC is BlueTooth enabled). Then the fax would need to go from the machine, through the PC to the phone. I don't know how that would work, exactly.

I would start by seeing how data can be transferred from the computer to the phone. (Can you use USB for data?) If you can store the fax as a file on the computer, transfer it to the phone, then send it to a phone number, that would be your best shot.
