    Madam I'm Adam - Actually that is my pseudonym. You can call me David.

    I am using my cell to deal with family issues a thousand miles away. I need access to the net on the road, at home or when I'm a long way from home. I would love to find a way to get a fax on the Droid or any other portable device. Can the Droid receive faxes?

    Researching the capabilities has been fun. The phone and available apps are more than I need but I am a gadget person so I think I would like the Droid even if I don’t need it.

    I’m still undecided but curious about the features of the phone.

    I am leaning toward getting the Droid.

    I have looked over a few short searches and have found nothing about being able to receive a fax over the droid.

    Thanks.

    While not vital, it would be helpful to be able to receive a fax

    technically you can receive a fax, indirectly. For example, if you sign up for a free account on k7.net you are assigned a telephone number with a washington area code. Then you have the fax sent to that number and then it will get emailed to you as an attachment. No if you don't mind using a number that may not be local to the person sending then it could work. Not sure if you can open it on a droid. I believe the attachment is sent as a tiff file. I haven't tried it yet so, like I said, not too sure...

    FAXZERO.com doen't work with Droid either

    I tried FAXZERO.com it doen't work with Droid either, problem is Verizon will not allow any uploads other than sharing via photo sharing. I wonder what the judge would say in small claims when I explain I pay for "UNLIMITED" Internet?
