I want to dump eFax because it's too expensive...suggestions?
« on: January 02, 2018, 10:45:53 AM »
Hi Y'all,

I want to dump eFax because it is $152 per year! And I rarely need to fax anything, but for the off chance I need to send or receive a fax from a certain fax number, I do need an actual fax number.

Is there a cheaper (or free) option anyone knows of where I can port my number away from eFax?

If I need to get a new fax number, that's fine.

Much appreciated.

I use Faxage on the Lite plan. It costs $3.50 a month base, and then you get charged per minute after that. My total monthly bill for 3-5 faxes per month ends up being between $5 up to $8 in a really hot month.

It will give you a local area code number, but I'm not sure about porting over your current fax number.

Thank you, CPA Cat -- that's exactly what I needed and why I asked here.

When I dumped eFax they offered a reduced price, so you might want to try that.  FWIW, I dumped them anyway.

VOIP.ms offers full virtual FAX service now, both inbound and out, for only $1.99/month plus 2.9/minute airtime used billed at six second increments, and they provide both FAX to email and email to FAX gateways.... but they limit service to US and Canadian numbers only.
