Hi guys

I wonder if anyone can help me out. Ive ust upgraded from an iBook to the MacBook Pro. I managed to set up the internal modem to send faxes really easily on the last machine.

Now i didnt ask whe buying the machine whether there was an internal modem installed on the new machine, i assumed that being an apple it would.

I have tried to set up the fax preferences but can seem to do it. In the fax preferences list it doesnt display the internal modem.

Can anyone help or provide some guidance here as im getting very frustrated

I'm pretty sure there's no internal modem on the MBP, there certainly isn't on the MacBook.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

MBP does not come with internal modem.

If you need it, you have to buy an apple USB modem (I believe it's around $49, not sure).
