Most of the applications for sending faxes from your cell phones are very easy to use and doesn't require any technical skills. All you will have to is to read a few instructions and you're ready to go! One of the possible uses of such tool is for example faxing while you're travelling or just don't have any fax nearby. However, just think of other advantages of using mobile faxing - you can totally forget about costs of paper which is required when you want to send a traditional fax. It's not only cheaper solution, but also much more ecological. We all know that even if it's not so important today, its importance will increase significantly within years.
The principle behind mobile faxing is almost the same as with ordinary online faxing. You just send your document in whatever format you want - let it be PDF, doc or pages(it's the Mac counterpart to doc) - to a company which handles your faxing. They have special devices which translate the digital documents into ordinary analog message which can be send via phone lines. Then you just receive a report to find out if your message has been received successfully. You don't have to worry about many things such as paper jams or that you have run out of ink. All those things are handled by a third-party company which you have employed to send faxes in your name.
The costs of such services vary depending on the amount of pages that you are going to send per month. Usually the fee starts at around $5 per month, however many companies let you test their services for free for some time. Thanks to this, you will find out if you're satisfied with the quality of services and you will make sure that your decision is right. Of course if you're not happy with the services, in most cases you will be eligible for a refund. It depends on the company, but nearly all providers will give you the full sum you paid.
