I subscribe to a free fax newsletter (I think it's the only one that's still around). That way I know I get one fax a week.

Even if it's the number I ported to them?

Isn't callcentric available with free NY numbers?

Based on what I've seen here, it seems a bit complicated. Are you familiar with it? Is it simple?

For me it's super simple.

But what might seem very simple to one person might not be to another. It's been a while since I set it up.

Also IINM simonics might have an option to use GV as incoming fax, but that might be more advanced than callcentric.

With CallCentric, there's seems to be a 911 recovery charge. I don't have that on my account, I don't recall how exactly I set it up, but when I log in I get a red warning that 911 is not active because I indicated that I'm using the number from outside the US/Canada. Not sure how to bypass the 911 issue with new signups. Please post here if you were able to find a way to avoid the 911 fees.

Another option is to use simonics.com with a Google Voice number. There's a one time setup fee for Simonics (search the Obi 110 Thread for a link giving a discounted set up price) and then your GV number can be set up to receive faxes and forward to email.

Thanks @ExGingi for all the help online and offline, but at this point, I'm about ready to give up. ::)

Did you call callcentric and ask them about using the number without 911?

https://simonics.com/gw/?promo=nerdvittles click on forums/support, and then click on Sign-up on top.

Call? Are you serious? I emailed and was told that by law they need to charge for 911.

Here's what you have to do:

Don't sign up for any rate plan. You have to remove the IP Freedom plan. If you can't figure out how to do it, just log out of your account, then start by clicking on receive calls at callcentric.com, select the free phone number and continue from there. You might need to set up another account, and possibly put a foreign address. But at checkout it will show $0.
