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. - and in more than 140 countries worldwide.
Next, you can 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 set up 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.
