Fax from iPhone with Fax App
Probably the easiest way to send a fax from your iPhone is with a fax app. The App Store offers several fax apps, including eFax, Fax Burner, and FaxFile. After downloading and installing the app, you can easily fax documents by simply uploading the document to the app and entering the recipient’s fax number.
The first thing to point out is that it’s not always possible to find a free fax service for your iPhone. Most apps let you submit one or two for free to try, but then ask for money. Easy Fax lets you earn free fax credits by watching ads, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Something like Fax Free is much better and customer ratings prove it. Despite its name, this app’s fax rates start at $4.99 per week. If you need the app for business purposes, will you watch the ads first to get credit?
Fax from iPhone with Mail-to-Fax Service
Another way to send a fax from your iPhone is to use the email-to-fax service from your email app. This service allows you to send a fax by attaching a document to a specific email address and sending it. Documents can be retrieved from iCloud or another cloud storage service, or you can take a picture of the document with your iPhone camera.
Popular email-to-fax services include eFax and MyFax. To use this service, you must sign up for an account and then email your fax number with your document attached in the format [email protected]. These services work very well, but again they are not free. After a freebie or two, the company asks you to pony up for a subscription.MyFax starts at $10/month and goes up to $37.50/month.
Another good thing is that these companies usually let you transfer your existing landline fax number (if you still have one).
