Question
Dear ZZ

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fax

Can we use Wireless Technology viz Bluetooth or Wi-Fi for connecting Smartphone Device to Fax machine ?.

Smartphone Device will detect the Fax machine via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Both devices will be Bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled.

Smartphone Device application will allow importing of Contacts from Fax machine while Fax machine button function to import contacts from Smartphone Device.

Smartphone device can transfer data to Fax machine memory and Fax machine can transfer data to Smartphone device memory.

Smartphone device fax software application will allow to send fax from the Fax machine device directing the print output to Fax machine device from the fax software.

Thanks & Regards,

Answer
Fax is a totally different protocol so I don't know the answer to your question.

I suppose it could be done but would require a significant software development effort.

There are service companies which allow fax messages to be sent to and from smartphones and pcs but I think that is totally different function from the one you are inquiring about.
