How about e-Fax Service?

Post by pramodanchu » Fri Jan 02, 2009 12:52 pm

e-Fax service would be nice, could be an add-on for a nominal fee.

Definitely like the idea of e-Fax capability. I miss the ability to easily send faxes (like my Ooma port request ;) )

Good idea!

Have you tried the workarounds suggested in these forums?
a) Set QOS=0
b) Use *99-pause-number

There are already several e-fax services available at $3 to $4 per month, and one that I know of which charges as little as $1 per month. Each includes a separate dedicated fax number. I tend to prefer having the systems separated and having ooma continue doing what it does best.

Faxing is not considered a growing strategic market. It is a declining market.

It probably makes business sense for Ooma to not get distracted from its core competency that it does so well - Providing great voip services and features.

While I'd be ecstatic to see this too (maybe in the uber-premier package), I'm not going to hold my breath. I have found some alternatives, though, that might interest people coming to this thread. I haven't tried any of them with ooma, yet.
