Hi all,

I am Writing a new PIM application for Nokia 9500. I can dial the numbers
(platformRequest("tel:"+2495)) and can also send SMS, but I would like to know how to send Fax from it, or atleast the document where I can do some research on this.

I will be thankfull for any bit of advice.

Kind regards
Jasvir

I'll go out on a limb here and just say "it can't be done".

You are trying to figure out how a MIDlet could initiate a connection to a standard FAX machine and transmit an image to it. I don't think you'll find any phone capable of doing that.

My best suggestion would be to use an e-mail to FAX service like efax. You can send them a standard e-mail message which they will, in-turn, FAX to a standard phone line.

If you have a service like that available, then you can send FAXes from your MIDlet as simply as sending an e-mail message. While that's not exactly simple, it's at least possible. You just need an SMTP client.
