Not unless your BB has a fax modem built into it. It would be cheaper, faster, more reliable, and just easier to send the file attached to an email.

Don't they have 800 Fax numbers that convert things to electronic?

Our company uses a Biscom server and I have my own fax number that sends faxes directly to my email account....and therefore to my BB. However, they are in .tif format and unreadable on the device.

Efax does work well. You can fax anything to yourself to get a scanned PDF file or anything anyone sends you will be e-mailed to you as a PDF, which of course can be forwarded. Now...if I can only learn how to strip out the forwarded verbage... I'd be all set.

Also, FYI: if you are with Tmo they have a separate inbox for incoming faxes and it is free for low volume you can forward that fax to any fax # in world..
I know they tried to get rid of this but they lost it in california and still offer it.
I use it and I am in AZ. otherwise my pdf fax comes from efax kind of providers.
