efax services

I want to get rid of my fax # and go with an email based fax service. The $3.50 shortfall charge for not making long distance calls is BS.

Any experience here?

TIA

Re: efax services

Avoid Efax like the plague, because you will never get rid of them. You can call them and try to cancel, but they will not let you. The only way I got rid of them was to generate a one time use credit card number, change my profile, and then cancelled the number.

On top of that I got bombarded with spam, and almost every single document I ever tried to fax, was too large for them to handle.

Current rides:
2003 BMW 1200 LT (bought in 2006)

Past rides:
97 Kawasaki ZX11(bought new in 1997, sadly sold in September 2014)
89 Honda Hurricane (sold)
88 Honda Hurricane (traded on an SUV)
86 Kawasaki 1000R (stolen but recovered)
84 Honda 750F (traded on 1000R)
81 Suzuki GSX1100 (sold)
78 Suzuki GS750 (traded on GSX1100)
74 Yamaha RD50 (sold)

Re: efax services

EFax is still around? I owned their stock long ago. I might have made some money on it, but it tanked at some point and a lot of people lost out. I even used their service for a while. I think they had a freebie version. I never had any problem with them, but that was a long time ago.

As cheap as fax machines are today, it seemed better just to go spend a $150 or so. You can use a "distinctive ring" to use a single line with the fax machine, but that's an extra charge from the phone company.

Re: email fax services

My mom lives with me, so the distinctive ring would get answered every time.

Re: efax services

I use faxdigits.com. It sends me the fax in PDF format to my e-mail. And that is the free version.
