To send a fax from a phone, you'll need an online fax service. You will receive all of your faxes in your email client, and you'll be able to send faxes through the online fax system as well. Then you just need to be able to get your email on your phone. If you can email, you can fax.

Not all online fax providers are created equal though, so some may not be mobile-phone-friendly. There are some comparison charts out there that are helpful in finding out what the differences are between the providers and their plans. Some may even an app specifically for mobile phones.
