When you fax machine dies… How to get digital quick!
So the old fax machine bit the dust. What to do now? Do you run to the store to buy a replacement or maybe this is a great time to go digital finally.
First things first. We need to make sure you are still able to receive faxes.
- Sign up for a free trial for online faxing. Pick any number because it won’t matter once you port your number.
- Contact your phone provider (the company you are paying for your fax land line) and have them forward your number to the new fax number.
- Fill out a Port request form and have your online fax provider port your old fax number to the online service.
Porting your number is pretty quick. It shouldn’t take more than a day or two. Now all of your faxing is in the cloud and you can cancel your land-line, get rid of your old fax machine (remember to dispose of it greenly) and enjoy the flexibility, security and reliability of your online fax service.
WestFax offers a 10 day free trial so give it a try. We are positive you will never go back to a fax machine again.
