How to fax for free to 45 countries
Years ago I had a JFax free fax account, and was issued with a U.S. fax number. This worked great, but some folks were reluctant to fax to a US number when they lived in other countries, and I was always on the lookout for easier (and cheaper) solutions.
When I moved back to Australia I used a local online faxing service which was also great, but faxes were definitely dwindling in popularity and I found I was only sending and/or receiving about one fax per month. I eventually cancelled the service as I didn't need it any more.
On the odd occasion when I'd need to fax a form or document, I could do it direct from my Mac computer by selecting File/Print/Fax PDF. All I needed to do was plugin my landline phone cord straight into my computer and as soon as the fax had gone I put the plug back into the handset of the phone.
This was a perfect solution and one I've used for a few years now, for that odd fax I had to send.
A few months ago I upgraded to a MacBook laptop which I absolutely adore, but when I went to plug in my phone line today I realised - d'oh - that I can't plug a phone line into my Mac :-) A quick search online uncovered some great solutions:
- I can buy a USB-to-phone line adapter
- I can simply turn my documents into PDF and send using a faaabulous free service online :-)
Today I'll talk about the free service:
- Send free fax by internet to 45 countries including USA, Canada, Australia, most of Europe etc.
- Send 2 free faxes per day
- Each fax can be up to 9 pages in length.
- There is a file size limit of 10 MB per fax.
- No sign-up is required.
