I have a C309a All In One. Can it be set-up to send and recieve faxes using my cell phones bluetooth. I am able to connect to the printer now with my cell phone and send it pictures I have taken. But in the set up for the C309a I can not see how to set it up to use my cell. Right now I use my land line. Will I need to invest into a different HP printer or cell phone? Thanks

Is there a way to accomplish this without a fax to mail company in the middle?
I need to send/receive faxes only about 4 times per year.
T-mobile had a FAX to email service: Tmobile FAX-to-E-mail. I am not sure if it is still available.
An advantage of having the FAX-to-Email service is that you can throw away your dedicated FAX machine and FAX land-line phone number. You can also send and receive from and to anywhere in the world without expensive send charges (including when you are not in the office.)
Do a web search on 'free FAX-to-Email'
There are some companies that allow you to send a FAX with an advertisement in the headers.
To receive 'FAX' it is better to have your correspondent send you an email with an attachment (such as pdf or jpg). Most 3-in-one printers have the scan to E-mail function built-in).
On a mobile phone
The problem with sending a FAX from a mobile device is that the available format files to 'send' are not the same as those the FAX machine can 'read'. The FAX-to-Email servers make the conversion for you.
On a PC with modem
On a PC, the conversion programs are built-in with a file to FAX program using the PC's modem.
I can not recommend them but these are some possibilities for service and advise:
