Is it possible to send and receive faxes directly on the iPhone?

The goal is to try to avoid paying an additional 5 or 10 bux a month to use a 3rd party service. I'm hoping the functionality can be either bought through an app or configured.

Can't you just use email instead? Same thing as fax, just without the need for analog. – Webs Sep 13 '10 at 20:37
@Webs there are some e.g financial/legal transactions that need a fax. Although if one end is email is it still valid ? – Mark Jan 29 '13 at 18:25

Looks like you're looking for the iFax app (Unfortunatlly I don't have a link here at work, but if you search for it in the store it should pop up), however I've got the next best thing!
