For those of you considering a fax line or are paying for a fax line check out efax.com. They give you a number (sometimes local) the fax comes in, the program converts it and emails it to me. The cost? FREE!
I must agree. eFax.com has been great! I have opted for the eFax Plus, which does cost a small quarterly fee and a miniscule per minute charge. But so far, I've loved it. For that fee, I get a local number that people can fax me any time, day or night. I don't have to listen to a phone ring and I can pring out any fax in better quality than a traditional fax can.
I can also fax OUT most anything I want to as well. Sure, you are limited somewhat do computer created documents. But 95% of what I fax are computer created documents anyway. And now they have a feature where you can add a signature, etc. to any document. It's real easy.
I must say I am all thumbs up for eFax. I will never buy a fax machine.
