Sending a Fax

Hey there!

I am currently living in Bern. And I need to send a Fax to a foreign country. Do you know some public place where I can send a Fax since I don´t have phone in my home? Do you know if it is very expensive?

Thanks,
Merce

Just go to your nearest post-office. They usually have fax and copy machines for personal use. Shouldn't be more than a frank or so (expensive, but OK for one-time use I guess )

+1

But you'll need to be able to speak German, as no one in Bern speaks English...

Re: Sending a Fax

Does anyone know how to send a fax by internet?

What software is ok for either Mac or PC?

Just wondering, as my fax does not work anymore.

Some people aren't fortunate enough to have something that needs faxing, so they tax the fax and make everyone equally miserable.

Send a fax (to Italy) from the Post Office yesterday. Cost: CHF 8.

Only costs 36 to fly there. Doesn't seem right somehow.
