Send a fax using monitor dialing

Monitor dialing allows you to dial a number from the device control panel as you would
dial a regular telephone. When you send a fax using monitor dialing, you can hear the
dial tones, telephone prompts, or other sounds through the speakers on the device.
This enables you to respond to prompts while dialing, as well as control the pace of
your dialing.

TIP: If you do not enter your calling card PIN fast enough, the device might start
sending fax tones too soon and cause your PIN not to be recognized by the calling
card service. If this is the case, you can create a speed dial entry to store the PIN
for your calling card.

NOTE: Make sure the volume is turned on, or you will not hear a dial tone.

To send a fax using monitor dialing from the device control panel

TIP: If you are using a calling card to send a fax and you have your calling
card PIN stored as a speed dial, when prompted to enter your PIN, press
Speed Dial to select the speed dial entry where you have your PIN stored.

Your fax is sent when the receiving fax machine answers.
