HP Tango X
iOS

I've set up an HP Tango X Printer and installed the HP Smart App on iPhone and Computer. I opted-in to the free trial of the Mobile Fax feature

On the 'Mobile Fax Settings' page, Under 'Receiving' , it's defaulted to "Auto-Print Received Faxes On". 

2 questions that I'm confused about:

  • Is there a way to to set this auto-print feature to "Off"?  Also - 
  • What number would senders of a fax to me even be using?? 

Any help is appreciated and forgive my ignorance if the answers are obvious and I'm just not figuring it out (quite possible).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This printer series does not include its own Fax hardware - Print and Scan are supported.

 

Example - No fax component / hardware mentioned

 User Guide

 

What number?

Because the printer does not have a built-in fax component, the "receive number" is not relevant.

 

What if?

On a printer that does include a Fax,

  • The User Guide includes a Fax How-to Chapter
  • Setup instructions are included in that chapter

and

  • The receiving phone number would normally be your land-line phone number.

========================================================================

What to do?

 

Receive Faxes

There are eFax services, both free and for subscription / purchase, to allow you to receive (and send) faxes.

Set your browser to search for "efax" , "fax without a fax machine" or similar.
