    I worked with someone a while back who (if I understand this correctly)
    travelled quite a bit and had a mobile to which he could have a fax sent.
    When he was then in an office with a fax, he'd enter the local fax number
    and it would print out on that machine. Did I get this right? Can that be
    done and - if so - what specs does the phone need to have for this to
    function? I looked in the manual of my 6230, but there's no mention of fax
    forwarding anywhere (if that's what its called).

    Thank,
    Gus

    The only service I know that will do this (in the UK, anyway) is Orange
    Answerfax. You have a fax number assigned to the phone and when a fax is
    sent to it you receive a text message. Then, when convenient, you call
    your voicemail number and there is an option there to send the fax to any
    convenient number, i.e. the number of the fax machine nearest to where you
    are.

    See here: http://www.orange.co.uk/services/ans...x_service.html

    Hope this helps,

    It's not a phone feature, but a network feature. T-Mobile USA offers this
    service in America, and it works with any phone. They call it "FaxMail",
    since it works in conjunction with voice mail.

    Sounds like this person had type of fax mailbox. He would have been alerted
    to the fact he had a fax waiting for him and then when he was near a fax
    machine he could then dial into the mailbox and enter the number of that
    machine to have the fax delivered there.

    Do a google search for "Unified messaging" and you will find numerous
    products available that will provide this feature.

    Vodafone have this service available, on their 242 message service (an
    upgrade from 121 would you believe!). Faxes are received into a mailbox, and
    these may be read back to you (from your mailbox), and you may to elect to
    have the fax forwarded to wherever.

    As an alternative... Ask your provider for you FAX number, and DATA number
    (you will only need the FAX number). Give THAT number to those that need to
    send you a fax. Set your phone to "DIVERT ALL FAX CALLS" to a number of your
    choice (a "local" fax machine). Anyone calling that number would then send
    the fax, and it would divert (transparent to the caller) to the number you
    have elected. With this method, however, you will still need to be able to
    access the "physical" fax, to collect the document. This is NOT a "mailbox"
    service.

    Good luck
