Where Do You Want to Fax?
Using a Machine
Although fax machines are artifacts from the 1980s, they are a tried-and-true solution that you sometimes have to use.
Dialing from one country to another isn’t too difficult, but there are some caveats. You are going to need the following:
- The international dialing prefix of the country you are in.
- The country code of the country you are faxing.
- The area code and number of the target fax machine.
