- Did you know that a single phone number can serve as
both a virtual phone and
Affordable and convenient, ordering a virtual phone and fax number delivers a variety of benefits beyond the monthly cost advantages.
For example, with a virtual phone
and fax number, you can receive
faxes without the need for a physical fax machine, fax paper, toner or ink, and a separate
fax line. This is due to how a virtual phone and fax number work.
Instead of being printed on fax paper, the fax arrives as an image file.

- Here's how a virtual phone and fax
number combination plan works:
- First, you'll need to order a "virtual" phone number. This number truly
is virtual in that it can follow you wherever you go. It does not require a physical phone jack installation. You
can order a local virtual phone and fax number for just about any city
in the U.S. - or the world. You can also order toll free virtual phone numbers.
- Next, you must designate a "ring to" or destination number. This number
is entirely up to you. For example, you may want to receive your virtual phone and fax number calls at an office
with a PBX system, on a mobile phone, at your home office, or at a large call center. Keep in mind that your initial
choice can be changed later. In fact, you can change the ring to number 24/7 online.
- From there, you'll want to configure your virtual phone account so that any virtual
faxes that come in are routed to your designated email address. Other settings can be configured at this time or
at a later date.
- Finally, publish or otherwise distribute your virtual phone and fax number to your
co-workers, partners, clients, and anyone else who needs a convenient way to call you or send you faxes.
- Another benefit to ordering a virtual phone and
fax number involves portability. Whether you plan on moving your business at
a later date, you can keep the same number; when you travel, you can forward your virtual calls and faxes simply by changing
the ring to number online; if a call center is out of commission due to a power outage or storm, you can route
your calls elsewhere.
Virtual numbers can also serve as "local" business numbers. For instance, you can order numbers in other
cities and route the calls to your main office. International virtual numbers work the same
way. You can have a Brazil virtual number and receive voice calls and faxes in any country you desire.
Exceptional call quality, easy-to-configure settings, fax forwarding features, voicemail options, simultaneous
call processing, rollover minutes (optional), advanced features such as time of day routing, and month-to-month
plans with no long term contracts are but a few of the many more compelling reasons to order a virtual phone and fax number.

When someone sends a fax
to your virtual number, the fax isn't routed to a fax machine; it's routed to your email address.
