    The .efx is your problem. On efax, you need an efax plus account (costs money) to get tiff files. I throught j2 sent faxes in tiffs. You need to find a fax service to send you tiffs. I get my j2 faxes in tiff format, not efx format. Not sure why.

    I use, which seems to work well. I got rid of efax because of the spam they send (even though they still seem to send it). It works great, but isn't very practical for the treo 650 screen. They offer Tiff or PDFs.

    The treo seems to recognize the format, but it doesn't seem to let me open it. AcidPro does and so does Tiff Viewer, but I don't get enough faxes that are must reads to make it worth the expense. If only PDAs could be opened...

    You wanna really save money on INCOMING faxes? Sign up with They have a $2/month 800 number, that you can dedicate as Fax or Fax/Voicemail OR Fax/Follow-You --> Then go to Voicemail. It's just $0.069 per minute for incoming calls.

    When I receive a fax, it sends an email notification to me (on my Treo), and then from a web-browser (on a PC) I can view the TIFF images.

    This capability could be useful when traveling and/or generally to send documents to persons who are not (yet) e-mail savvy.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    It will cost ya $20....$30 more if you don't have the companion program Instepprint.

    I currently have efax, which I use very infrequently (and never from my Treo). I signed up on, but from the brief testing I did, it looked like neither sent their faxes in tiff format using their free service (efx and jfx, respectivel). Has anyone else had a different experience?

    I never receive faxes that are important enough to need on my Treo, I'm just goofing around.

    I use a product called thinmail and thinphone. This allows you via email, to send a fax or voice message to a number via email to that particular phone number.

    I've been using Adobe's free PDF reader for months now. It works fine for ebooks or documents & web pages that I print to PDFs with the exception of a zoom capability for text. BUt if the faxes are graohical data... it may do the job.

    You can't read PDF's directly on the Palm which is the problem.
