Can I use a fax machine with Vonage?



Yes, but you may need to “tweak” things a bit.

First, set up your Vonage phone adapter/router. Next, plug the cord from your fax machine into an active green phone port on the back of the unit. (There should be two little phone handset icons.) If you have only one service line, plug the fax cord into “Phone Port 1.” You’ll have to switch out your phone for your fax machine every time you want to send or receive a fax. Or plug your phone into the phone port on your fax machine — it probably has one. If you’ve purchased a second Vonage line for dedicated faxing, plug the fax cord into “Phone Port 2” of the Vonage router.

You should now be able to send and receive faxes as usual. If you have a dedicated line, you’ll need to visit the Vonage web site and log in to your online account to choose the type of adapter you’re using.

So, you can use a single Vonage line for both voice and fax calls, as long as you don’t want to do both at the same time. If you need to send and receive faxes at any time — even when you’re on a voice call — you’ll want a second Vonage line for the fax machine.

Vonage markets a “fax line” as a separate phone line, available to homes for a monthly fee of $9.99 (plus a $9.99 activation fee) with a 250-minute-per-month cap for outgoing faxes before customers are charged 3.9 cents per minute. (Incoming faxes are unlimited.) A Vonage Small Business Account includes a dedicated fax line at no extra charge, with a limit of 500 minutes’ worth of outgoing faxes per month. (Again, incoming faxes are free.) But Vonage engineers must “provision the device” before sending it to you and allowing you to add the fax line.

Vonage claims to work with all fax machines. However, some customers report having had trouble sending and/or receiving faxes with Vonage and other voice-over IP (VoIP) providers. The difficulties are a frequent topic in help forums and even made the Wikipedia entry for Vonage. Frustratingly, the problems have been intermittent and hard to diagnose, and some customers have resorted to buying a new fax machine that better-suits Vonage’s optimum specifications. The company’s official “help” resource suggests lowering the baud rate on the fax machine to 9600 (or “slow”) as well as disabling the machine’s ECM (error correction mode) feature, if applicable. Also, make sure the fax machine is on the “standard” setting. Some users have had good luck adding *99 before dialing, as that resets the bandwidth for that call.

[edit: This service, known as vFax, has been discontinued. If you’d like to send a fax online for free, you might want to try out FaxZero. You can also use a website like Fax1 or MaxEmail if you’re willing to pay for the service.]

As you work to make ends meet in your business, the expense of installing a dedicated fax line may outweigh the benefits. To save money and get the most use from your Vonage line, you can utilize it for verbal communication as well as faxing. Connect your line to a fax machine and you can send fax communications to all of the same locations you can call without increasing your monthly fee. You also don't have to worry about purchasing additional software or equipment.

Step 1

Disconnect the phone line currently connected to your telephone. Leave the other end of the line connected to your Vonage adapter.

Step 2

Connect the phone line that you just unplugged into the fax machine port marked with the word “Line” or a telephone icon.

Step 3

Press the “Power” button on the fax machine to turn it on. Place the documents you want to fax in the machine's feeder.

Step 4

Enter the phone number to which you want to fax the documents, and then press the “Send” key to use your Vonage line to initiate the fax.

Step 5

Wait for the fax to complete. Disconnect the phone line from the fax machine and reconnect the telephone if needed.

Tips

  • Vonage offers the option to use the second port on its adapter as a fax line but charges a nominal fee for this upgrade. The fee is waived for the first line, but applies to each additional line. A per-minute rate may also apply to faxing in some cases. Contact customer support for questions regarding the plan.

The Best Way to Get a Fax Line

By Ashley Poland

Many multi-function printers have a fax machine built in.

If you own a fax machine, a VoIP or telephone service provider may work best for starting and maintaining a dedicated a fax line. If you don't own a fax machine, you can use an online fax service to send and receive fax messages in your office. An online fax service offers more flexibility and fits in with modern digital ideals, but using a traditional fax machine may be easier to implement in a larger office where multiple users need fax access.

Online Fax Services

Sending and receiving faxes online may be the easiest solution for a casual user. Several online fax services provide service for a monthly fee. eFax and MyFax are two of the most well-reviewed services. MyFax offers a free trial, after which maintaining an account requires a monthly fee. You can manage faxes from your smartphone, fax from up to five different email addresses and access all previous fax information online in your account. eFax offers two tiers of service: Plus and Pro, both of which cost a monthly fee. Plus offers 150 pages of faxes per month, while Pro offers 200; after that, both plans cost $0.10 per sheet. It also offers smartphone and online access to faxes.

VoIP Services

VoIP services are not ideal for faxing; the Internet-based services drops packets in a way that doesn't happen over landlines, leading to unreliability when sending fax messages. However, some VoIP services offer the option to set up a fax number. If you already use Vonage in your business, you might consider using their service to add a fax line to an existing fax machine. The Vonage fax service includes 250 minutes of fax service; you only need to add the service to your account and connect your fax machine to your Vonage box. If you use the Ooma VoIP phone service, you can use it to send faxes from your fax machine -- but you will need a phone splitter if you're using your main phone number to send and receive fax messages.

Telephone or Internet Service Provider

It may be simplest to add the extra service to your existing bill, whether its the bill for your telephone or your Internet connection. This consolidates your bills, and ensures that you'll end up with a local number and a local service for support. If you want a dedicated fax line, you will need a second phone line specifically for your fax machine. In addition to business phone providers that can set you up with an extra line, such as AT&T, you can also get phone service from providers like Comcast and Time Warner.

Choosing the Best Service

In terms of reliability and ease of use, an online fax service is the best way to handle faxing: it doesn't require any additional hardware, works on any computer or device and can be cancelled at any time should you no longer require fax service. However, if you already have a fax machine and want to go the more traditional route, going through your existing ISP or VoIP service can be cost-efficient without adding another bill to your pile. Whichever service best meets your needs is the best service for you.
