Sending and receiving faxes via Whistle phone number

I've just signed up for Whistle and like it a lot so far. (Our six year old son has been using it on his wfi-only iPhone 3G for some time - it's one of our old iPhones and he wanted to be able to make calls on it.)

I am looking forward to the speakerphone function for iPhones that you are working on - I find speakerphone really useful, especially when on hold - but another great feature, if you can do it, would be the ability to send and receive faxes using your Whistle number.

Mostly now I just email PDFs, but there are those times when a fax is needed - and it's annoying having to have a landline just for those.

It would be great to be able to send and receive faxes from my Mac OS X just using our broadband connection - and from/to my iPhone as well, if that's possible.

Hope you can make this work.

Thanks, Alexander

    Thank you for your suggestion. We're always interested to hear what our users are looking for, and I'll pass it on to the team. : )

    We do currently support speakerphone on iPhones that have multitasking capability, though. On such devices, moving Whistle to the background while on a call will enable speakerphone mode.
