You can receive faxes on your Smart Number or Smart Fax if you subscribed to this option. A Smart Number can handle telephone calls, SMS and faxes, while the Smart Fax is dedicated to receiving faxes only.
People can send you faxes simply by dialing your Smart Number or Smart Fax number from a fax machine as they normally would. Your Evatel service automatically detects the type of incoming call (voice, SMS or fax) and handles it accordingly. Your received faxes will be sent to you as emails with the fax document attached in PDF format. You can also get a paper copy of your fax document on a fax machine connected to an ATA (Analog Telephone Adapter) registered on an IP phone extension.
