Deal Details

Last Edited by mlacey3 June 13, 2016 at 10:33 AM
I've had this service for years but have not seen it posted on here for a while.

Sign up at http://voicemail.k7.net/signup/ to receive a free phone number that accepts incoming voicemail and faxes. I only use the fax. The faxes are sent to your email address as a multi-page .tif file. I use windows photo viewer to read them - easiest way I've found.

I guess there is a small "catch". You have to receive a fax or voice mail every 30 days or less or you will lose your number. So I have an appointment on my calendar for every 3 weeks to leave myself a voicemail.

I did search before posting this but I guess it could be a repost, if so, oops.

Anyone else have success with K7?

It looks like when they reach a certain volume of new sign-ups they may close it for a while, so get in on this while you can

Other Free INCOMING fax options:
eFax.com - must download software to view faxes, 10 pages/month max.
FaxBurner App for iPhone - Disposable fax number that expires in 24 hours. Non-iPhone owners can use faxburner.com web app. 25 pages/mo max.
voxox.com lets you receive Faxes and Voicemail in your email for free it even does Speech to Text and it does not expire (thanks TheGreatFixer) but is a lot more complicated to set up

Free OUTGOING fax options:
Faxzero.com
MyFax.com

For those lazy to call and leave a message in the first 72 hours, enter the number into any of the millions of click2talk boxes on the various websites, it will automatically generate a voicemail message you can discard.

Another "catch!"

The number issued is an area code to the State of Washington 206.

Or, if you don't need to receive faxes very often, just sign up for a new account or obtain a new fax # each time you know someone will be sending you a fax.

http://www.k7.net/faq.htm

they recommend some other service to send...says no per page charge and 10 cents per minute...they say no page limits on fax except it can't be over 2 megs...which idk about how many pages that would equal

someone test and tell us if there is a watermark...i've heard of a few other fax services that are free but put the companies watermark on them

The problem with these free faxes is that it may be here today and gone tomorrow... and if you are running a business... that is unacceptable...
