Sending a fax from the iPhone??

Is it possible to send a fax from your iphone.

i.e. Send a document/pdf from your phone to a fax machine?

Any apps for that?
Have you had any experience with that app?
How much do they cost?

What do you recommend? (Hopefully a free or not to expensive one!)

Thanks.

I just came across a program called "eFax".
It has a 30 day trial. Going to give it a try.

But i still I want to hear from you. Get your opinions on this.

Faxburner
I tried fax burner. And it looks good as long as you want to only send images as a fax. Can't send a PDF of DOC.

With eFax, you need to be American. Being a Canadian, that one doesn't work for me either.

Some places, e.g. some hospitals I deal with, don't have email. So you have to fax forms, etc.

Try this: FINARX Fax

Quick google search came up with that

Also here is a site with the top 5: http://www.brighthub.com/mobile/ipho...es/104095.aspx

These were the FIRST two sites I came up with off google...it was FASTER than posting here. Just saying.

I use "fax,print,share light", it's the best one I've used, though to send faxes it isn't free, it gives you credit for the first 2 faxes you send to try out, but after that you must buy the credits.

Also, why make fun of the guy who has to send faxes? I'm sure it's not his preferred method to send documents, but has to use it because the other person on the other end still uses fax.

MetroFax recently sent out a press release about a great upgrade to their Mobile App. http://www.prweb.com/releases/metrof...web8666022.htm

You can now use your full internet fax service from your iphone AND send pictures via fax too.

Try Scanner pro this app is great you can fax for 99 cent a fax not per page and you can put it in pdf file and mail it. I use this app all the time. It has saved me a many of times when I forget to mail something and need to get it there fast. The app is 7 dollars but well worth it.

Thanks for all the pointers guys. I will seriously have to give some of these apps a try. But in most cases seems like I will have to spend some money (which is okay if it does what you need it to do)

I've found myself in this need sometimes. I use JotNot Fax which has worked very well. It is 0.99c a fax though.

Yes. Have you met insecure Mr Email. The one responsible for data theft on a massive scale due to its 'open to the hackers of the world' nature? It may be 1980s but there is still a need for it and it's about the most secure electronic transmission method there is, but you go ahead and send your bank details or credit card or birth certificate details by email. Hope you never get spyware on your computer, or the person you send it to. Even once deleted from your "sent items", spyware will locate and exploit this info as it's never truly gone unless the sending and receiving computers are formatted!

Yup, you proved me wrong, 3 years later.

Bravo.

Didn't realise there was a time limit. This is still an active thread, and the point is a valid one.
