Cell phones manufactured today have the capability to be used as a GPS device and music player, and even to send a fax. To send a fax with a cell phone you will need to use an online fax service, such as MyFax or eFax. This will allow you to send a fax using a compatible phone, such as a Blackberry or iPhone. Once you have registered with an online service, you will be able to send a fax via a standard e-mail message.
