Weather Fax on Cell Phone?

I've been able to open NOAA's weather fax page on my cell (Blackberry) and I can select both the TIFF and GIF versions of the weather faxes of interest, but the images are too small to read and when you zoom in they pixellate so much you still can't read them. Anyone have any success with fax on phone?

Similar question, anyone ever see a GRIB viewer that would work on a cell?

Application developers offer cell phone weather alerts ranging from simple weather alerts to notifications that offer broader types of emergency alerts. But media sources, such as The Weather Channel, also can provide an emergency weather alert on your cell phone, often based on reports they've received from the National Weather Service via the EAS. And even some cities are starting to offer these services.
