    Fax Zero was a WASTE OF TIME. I attempted to send a one page fax twice, and more than 4 hours later, never received a confirmation or a response from their support department. I would NOT use them.

    I signed up for MyFax, send my fax, received a confirmation in less than 3 minutes. All you have to do is cancel your subscription when you are done. FREE, FAST and CREDIBLE.

  2. Purshelle says:

    Interesting that critical comments are not published on this site. Leads me to believe their are relationships in place.

    I did not have a favorable experience with Fax Zero. I DO recommend MyFax.

  3. Susan says:

    Hi, I’ve read all of the above (including all the comments). I thought I’d share my requirements and maybe someone with similar needs can recommend a fax service.

    I will be faxing out between 350 and 400 faxes per month, and receiving approximately 100-200 per month. They don’t have to get there “super fast.” But within 10-15 minutes of the time I send to the time received will probably be required.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Susan

  4. Susan says:

    Or sorry…I forgot…I will need a separate fax number (does not have to be an 800 number), because I spend a lot of time on the phone with clients and don’t want to be interrupting phone conversations to send/receive faxes.
    Thanks,
    Susan

    hello everyone, I am also an online fax user, I use Popfax, and i am pretty happy with them, i never had problems with fax sending/receiving faxes, and the price is quite good. I recommend it.

  7. Jen says:

    uFax is low cost, $4.99, but no free trial. They are the most reliable i have found though and the fastest. Real time status on sent faxes and can use from iphone app.

  8. Tony P says:

    I would add efax to the list, the only one that still seems to be completely free till date.

  9. Lisa says:

    I actually used FAXZERO and it was a pleasant experience. I got an email with a link to send the fax and then another confirmation email saying the fax was successfully sent.

  10. Jenea says:

    I am using Online Fax from Popfax: popfax.com, it is very safe, quick, and their price is quite affordable compare with the other online fax providers.

  11. Areal person says:

    I tried using efax for the free trial but they required a credit card number. Good thing about efax is they give you a dedicated number so you can receive FAXes too.

    I just tried FAX ZERO in order to send a small fax and it was super easy and quick, no credit card required. It only allows something like 10 pages of sending a FAX per month which is fine for me. No personal receiving fax number however. The cover sheet has an ad but enough room to allow typing TO, FROM, and a message. I did not see the copy of the fax that was sent, only got an email confirmation after I clicked on the URL that I got in my email when it was set up to send.

  12. thegooch says:

    if you are still using faxes for correspondence, you should get a time machin and take a trip to the present where they are obsolete.

  13. Val says:

    I would like to recommend Popfax online fax, I have done an online research before I signed with them, and I found Popfax quite affordable, easy to use, quick and very reliable. Great value for money.

  14. Ray says:

    I tried extremefax. Also very nice. But the pric went up.

  15. Lesa says:

    I have been using FaxORama. I have had excellent results, no problems or issues, and totally free!
