Fax to People without Fax MachinesI have had Callwave for some time now and a bit ago, as part of your regular service, they added a really cool feature. You are able to recieve fax's. Good news for me since I don't have a fax machine. But better? I figured, in a way I do. I can fax things to myself from a pay fax or from work, and send them to others who do not have fax machines either. This has worked out great. All you need is a Callwave account (way cheap for all the things it does, mainly let you know you have messages when you are online, but also free fax in and 800# of your own for messages)
