Receiving A fax On Your Smartphone?

Did you know you can receive faxes on many Verizon smartphones with Premium Visual Voice Mail for $2.99 a month?  I faxed to my cell phone number & let voicemail answer.  After a minute, I saw a notification I had new voicemail & when I opened it, it said it was a fax.  I was able to view the fax on my phone.  I forwarded the file to my email & could then save or print it!

I used to have a dedicated fax reception service & the monthly charge was about $17 per month.  Premium Visual Voice Mail also allows you to:
– Receive more voice mails that standard Verizon voice mail
– Voice Mail to Text allows you to read your voicemail(i.e. in a meeting)
– Create personal greetings for callers or groups of callers

Here is a link that compares the Verizon’s various voice mail options & prices:

Premium Visual Voice Mail is not available on all smartphones!  From this link, you can click to see a pop-up list of compatible Verizon smartphones:

There are also other apps/subscription services that would allow you to send faxes from your smartphone.  Check with your cell provider to see what options they offer!
