HP Photosmart eStation C510 series - Send and Receive Faxes with the eFax® Brand Online Fax Service

 

The HP Photosmart eStation C510 series printer faxes without a phone line. The printer sends and receives faxes using eFax®, a web-based faxing service. This service is free when you send up to 20 pages and receive up to 20 pages per month.

If you want to send or receive more pages per month, you can upgrade to the eFax Plus® service, and your account is charged a monthly fee.

When you use eFax®, your document is scanned by the printer, sent wirelessly to eFax's® server, and then on to the receiving fax number.

To use the eFax® brand service, the printer must have an internet connection and Web Services must be enabled so the printer can communicate with eFax's® server.

Before you can use eFax® with your printer, you must perform the simple setup procedures described below. This one-time setup allows the printer to communicate with eFax's® server using your eFax® account information whenever you send and receive faxes.

Click here for more information about eFax®.

Touch Continue, and the eFax® home screen displays your eFax® number and a number entry keypad for sending faxes.

 

NOTE:

Although the area code may not be local to you, you do not incur any long distance charges when sending and receiving faxes with this number.

If the 20pg limit is not sufficient then you can buy the service.  Here are the pricing tiers.

When dialing in the fax number you are sending to, do you need to use the #1 'and' the area if you are sending locally in your home area code (not your fax area#)?

Generally yes you do need to include the 1 even if it is local. The reason is that the actual physical machine that sends itfrom the efax side likely isnt local even though you.
