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.

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.
No longer a BES Admin, but it was fun while it lasted!

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.
