Q. Is receiving faxes (Fax2Email) really free ? Will it stay a FREE service ?
A. If you choose a FaxFX number (08660xxxxx) you don't pay a cent. NO SETUP , NO MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION - ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. This service will remain FREE and there is no limit to the number and size of faxes received.
Q. Is sending faxes via email also free ?
A. Print2Fax will be available soon, unfortunatly it's NOT FREE. For this service you need to purchase credits. Login, and follow the procedure.
Q. If this is free how can you provide me with a sustainable service ?
A. FaxFX earns revenue through a rebate system from Telkom for calls made to the allocated numbers.This revenue is sufficient for FaxFX to support this fax reception service at no charge to the end user, yet still delivering a corporate level service.
Q. Can my number receive calls from anywhere ?
A. No for 08660xxxxx numbers. Calls can only be received from South African telecommunications networks. NO INTERNATIONAL CALLS.
Q. If I take a 08660xxxxx number and don't use it will it remain available ?
A. No. We reserve the right to reclaim a number if there has been no usage for 60-days. You will receive a warning email prior to the number being reclaimed. As long as you receive at least one fax every 60-days the number will remain yours.
Q. Do I need to install any special software ?
A. No. The FAX is sent to you as a TIF image,PDF,PS attached to an email. Most operating systems have a default viewer application installed. However if that doesn't work for you, click here to download a FREE TIF Image viewer.
