There is an even money chance that there's nothing you can do, XP Fax has
more than enough trouble with MANY analog modems and regular wire telephone
lines. Attempting to use it with anything even remotely "non-standard"
(including Cell phones that work as fax modems, ISDN adapters with fax modem
capabilities, VoIP services, etc.) very often gives it (and you and us and
lots of other folk) heartburn. My only suggestion would be to contact the
mobile phone's manufacturer and see if they have a solution. From the XP
Fax standpoint, all bets are off with any device that's not listed in the
Hardware Compatibility List:
