Enabling a Fax Number

To send or receive a fax you will need to enable a Fax number.

  • To use faxing you will need to have a fax-enabled phone number.  To buy a fax-enabled number go to the Buy Numbers page.  The fax enable phone numbers have a checkmark.

Note:

  • Tracking numbers can be used for fax or voice, but not both simultaneously. 
  • Once you set up a fax number it can no longer receive voice calls (until you switch it back, by going to the fax numbers page and reactivating it into a voice number). 
  • Once you switch the number over to a voice number, it will prompt telling you that you can no longer receive faxes. 
  • The file size limit for faxes is 50MB or 350 pages.
