The Apple iPhone has dozens of communication applications, including apps that allow you to fax text, documents and images to anyone who has a fax machine. As of 2010, these applications range in price from 62 pence to £3.20 depending on the company. As with any application, be sure to read over the license agreement as some applications may require you to sign up for a service that charges a monthly fee to your credit card.
