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.
I agree with Frank1 on this one.

There are two e-fax services that I have used:
The least expensive and probably the best overall is offered at OneSuite and the other is packetel.

OneSuite offers two levels of service starting at $1.00 per month for incoming. IMHO, their upgrade service at $2.95 per month is the best.

OneSuite Fax Basic - $1.00/month - Unlimited inbound fax-to-email
Give your e-mail ultra e-muscles with our OneSuite Fax service. With OneSuite Fax Basic, you can be traveling anywhere in the world, and still be able to receive faxes in your email account. No paper, no cartridge, no fax machine. All the convenience and privacy.

OneSuite Fax Plus - $2.95/month - Send/Receive Fax
For only $2.95 per month and NO set-up charge, OneSuite Fax Plus turns your PC into your own virtual fax machine. You’ll have a fax line along with powerful fax settings. Start sending fax the same way you would send an email, and personalize your cover sheet, broadcast fax to multiple recipients, or have the option to add a second fax number. All just a few clicks away. Now you can travel anywhere and send/receive
faxes anytime! As long as there’s access to Internet, you’ll never miss a fax while you’re away. To learn more about OneSuite Fax, go to:

packetel offers similar services at a slightly higher price. Go to

Both require the sender to scan the document and attach it to the outgoing fax cover page. Both provide a dedicated fax number for incoming and outgoing faxes, and are capable of forwarding the incoming faxes to multiple accounts. BTW, junk faxes have ceased since I started using these services.

I've learned a lot here... two months ago I didn't even know how to spell VOIP and now I are one.

You can get an e-Fax 800 # for $2.00 set up and $2.00 per mo at This is a receive to email service. I have disconnected my fax machine and use this service. . There is also a free fax service at a sister company but you get a 206 area code (Washington State) and you lose # if not used for 30 days. See for details. Hope this helps some users.
