    don't know whether i'm in the right forum.
    have been using efax for the last year and they are cutting me off because last month i received over 60 faxes instead of under 20 per month. they now want to start charging.
    looking at callwave which is a free service that allows you to receive faxes through your e-mail....the same as e-fax.
    is anybody using this service and what problems have you encountered??

    thanks,

    I used callwave for a couple of years before I got DSL. I signed up for a faxwave account but I never really had a need for it Callwave worked great! I loved it. I would think faxwave would be good also.

    I did test faxwave a couple of times and it seemed to work well.

    suzi, thanks for the reply.
    do you know whether you were bombarded with advertisements and do you remember how many free fax pages you could receive before they bumped anybody off???
    i am connected to cable but used my efax service on my laptop when i travel.

    For callwave, there was a little box that was about 4 or five inches wide and maybe 2 inches deep, it would show little ads that changed every few minutes, but they were pretty small. I kept it at the top of the screen and it was not bad at all.

    I only used faxwave twice just to test it, so I don't know if there is any limit. Seems like their website might say what the terms of use are.

    I used Callwave as an answering machine, it worked quite well. The ad blocking program called "Ad Muncher" blocked the ads. The pay version lets you hide the window, so you dont see the ads until you get a message...
