Can anyone recommend a good, cheap online fax service? I've had efax (something like $9-10/month, paid annually in advance) but there have been multiple times that people told me they tried to fax me documents but it would not go through. I logged on but even when you click "My Account," nothing shows up. So what's the point of having this useless account?

I hate having to pay for a fax number anyway, since it is very rare that I need to fax anything or receive stuff by fax. But it seems like I should have a fax no. just in case. Any recommendations for other companies? Thanks.

I recommend Ring Central. You get a business phone number that is either forwarded to your cell or to a VOIP desk phone. You can check faxes, phone messages from anywhere. It’s not that expensive either. I have one of the better plans and pay about $480/year.

That includes my own business number and the fax. It’s cheaper and better than the phone service I had before through a mainstream carrier, where I was paying $135.00/month.

I've been happy with FaxBetter. If you pay for two years up front (the most they will let you pay ahead I think), it breaks down to $ 5.95 per month. I've been happy with them, generally speaking, not had many problems I guess because I don't use it enough to run into any serious problems.

Having a fax service is just a necessary evil and I'd get rid that expense if I could, but unfortunately, it's often the only way (besides snail mail) I can obtain documents from and send documents to government agencies, and the occasional "old school" client sends me stuff that way (very occasionally). I never come close to using my 500 pages/month maximum before extra charges kick in. My dentist got rid of her fax service entirely - why can't I? ugh.
