It's not novel, so we don't even need to address obviousness.

I meant this: if phone+fax was not yet invented/new, would it be novel?

If understand your question correctly, then yes.  I was using "new" and "novel" synonomously.

most patents are actually just improvments to other inventions that have already been made. i think combining them would be considered an improvment

I donot think so. Combination of 2 devices already known to the world cannot be patented according to Indian patent laws which reads non patentable invention as:
[the mere arrangement or re-arrangement or duplication of known devices each functioning independently of one another in a known way; ]
Check patent laws of you r country.
