Does faxzero work from a smartphone?

Camscanner app. Works great. It's a charge to fax but since nobody uses faxes anymore it's worth it when you need it.

Use the free AP : TurboScan
PHOToGraph the document ( with your phone )
and send it as either Email, or as Text message.
.
There are now far more smartphones in use, throughout the world than there are dusty old FAX machines, connected to copper telephone lines.

If the party to whom you are communicating REALLY NEEDS to receive your information via FAX, because they have no reasonable alternative, it is probable said organization has NOTHING you need.

Dr's office sends fax, I fax my lawyer. Medical records from my local hospital released to one of my Dr's, done by fax.

Uses for fax are still around.

Faxes won't die. I'm an IT consultant and have several Dr's offices that still use fax machines. They have to keep then due to agencies and insurance company requirements.

Faxes are used for several reasons. A signature on a fax is considered legal and recognized by law, whereas an e-signature on an email is not.

Faxes are inherently more secure. A fax can only be intercepted by actually accessing the physical phone line, or either end terminal. Plus, even if a fax is intercepted, it will simply appear as noise. Also, a fax is actually an image file, so there is not a risk of a fax transmitting or containing a virus or malware.
