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 there are some e.g financial/legal transactions that need a fax. Although if one end is email is it still valid ?
