    I have a fax/printer, but I discontinued my land line a while back. What options are there for sending faxes? I can go to a shop. I think there might be an option to fax on the Internet. Has anyone looked into sending a fax without a phone line? I'm being a little lazy not looking into this myself, but I only sending faxes maybe once a year.

    I was in the same situation. I'm not a heavy fax user, but I do need to send them once in a while. Back in the olden days, you could buy a device that interfaced with your cell phone, and you can plug the fax machine into it. But those don't work on modern digital cell phones. The other option is to use an internet fax service. But at the time, it seemed kinda hokey. I haven't looked into it lately. So maybe things have improved. But in the end, I gave up. I just send faxes from work. Or I cough up a few bucks and send them from the local mailbox shop. icon_neutral.gif

    But, fax is so 20th century. It's going away.

    It looks like eFax has a monthly subscription. That's what I was afraid of. I don't fax often enough to justify paying for that. It would still be cheaper than a land line, but it's not worth it.

    Do you have cable TV? I can send my fax through the cable lines since my internet connection is routed through my cable.

    It's not that hard. Just go to Kinkos or your local library.

    My company requires me to fax in my expense reports. I swear it makes me want to punch someone in the throat.

    I have to go over to FedEx Kinko's, and they pull the machine out from under a cabinet next to the abacus and dust it off for me.

    Everyone I deal with on a regular basis has e-mail or other electronic communication. It's only once in a while that I have to deal with a company that can only accept paperwork via fax. It's very archaic, but that's life.

    Have been in a similar situation - just found a great site that compares all the online fax services. Helped me finally make a decision and rid myself of the land line service and fees... hope this helps
