I use efax to receive faxes. Recently bought an iPad. Want open efaxes on the iPad but when I try to download efax messenger, I get a message that Safari can't download the file. Does anyone know how to access efaxes on the iPad?

    Unless efax offers an iPad app, you probably can't.

    I suggest using another service such as fax.com to send and receive faxes through your email.

    You can definitely receive efaxes on your iPad. You can also send an efax that consists only of a text message, but you can't attach any documents.

    Your mistake was trying to download the efax application the same way you did it on your laptop. Can't be done. And there currently is no efax app in iTunes, the ONLY source for app downloads on the iPad. So how do you use efax? You just go to their website using Safari (www.efax.com), click on My Account, enter your efax number and pin number, then select the Advanced efax option below and enter all the required send info (except for the file attachments). As for receiving efaxes, they come to your email address, so just open your mail, it will be there.
