Park My Fax is an excellent way to save money on your bills if you want to give up some of your fax lines while keeping your same fax number. It's also a great option for those moving to a different city, state, country, or even for those just going away for a while. After you sign up with us, we will port your fax number to our system. You can select from different options on how to process your faxes: you can leave an outgoing message or you can choose to forward your faxes to a different number.
Unfortunately we do not control the process and the time it takes. It will depend on the accuracy and details of the LNP form you completed as well as in the losing phone company. The losing company obviously does not want to lose a customer and sometimes they make it harder to port a number away from them. Sometimes it is really a battle to get a number out. You might not notice but we are doing our best each and every day to get your fax number moved.
Yes. ParkMyFax is the ideal service if you are changing your service provider to companies like Vonage and are not able to port your number.
After porting your phone number to us, you can leave a message telling your callers about your new number. If they leave you a message you can receive it via email, or by calling in to our system, using any regular phone.
Contact us with your phone number so we can check the availability for your number.
Yes, this is your number, so you can port it anywhere you wish at any time. You must notify us that you intend to port your fax number in order for us to stop charging you. Please read further for answers regarding payments and refunds.
No. We do NOT CHARGE you for porting away your number if you let us know that you intend to port your fax number away. Your new provider might charge for porting your number. (Please consult with them before taking such an action).
If you have signed for a one year prepaid package, you might not be eligible for a refund for your unused period. Please see other questions in this matter.
Yes. You must pay for at least 6 months or 12 months of the service you've selected. Porting your number is both labor intensive and involves direct expenses. Your first annual payment will cover the cost of porting your number AND your first 12 months of service. You can port your number away from us anytime you choose (after the first 30 days), but this payment is not refundable.
No. The porting process itself takes about 2 weeks on average and may be longer. You are only allowed to port your number away after a period of 30 days. If you port your fax number away from us before the end of the 30-day period from the date of the actual porting of your number to us, you will pay a hefty fine.
If you knowingly ask us to port your fax number after you've already cancelled your account, and we are not able to port your fax number as a result, then you will still be charged for the $20 porting fee.
We charge your account every calendar month at the beginning of the month. However, if your monthly charges are less than $10, you will be charged every 3 months, in order for us to save on credit card fees. You will still be eligible for a pro-rated refund for any period of time of unused service, should you decide to cancel your service. If you have signed for an annual service agreement, your account will be charged only once for that year.
If you selected the annual prepaid offer, then after the first 12 months you account will be changed to a month to month service. Please note: if your total monthly charges are less than $10, we will charge you only once every 3 months, in order to be able to keep credit card fees as low as possible. As stated above you will get a refund for any unused period of time, should you decide to stop the service
What you are trying to do is to turn your DSL service to be "Naked". We cannot guarantee that any of the services or features currently attached to your phone line will be preserved. You should check that and DOUBLE CHECK it with your current phone company. Many companies might disable the features and services on a phone line after it is ported away.
However, we have had customers succeeding in converting their DSL phone line to a "naked DSL". Below is some info contributed by a customer who was kind enough to send it to us, for your information:
Here are the main steps in achieving a "Naked DSL" after porting your phone number to us while keeping your DSL service.
1) Sign up to manage your account online, (Verizon customers should go to verizon.net not verizon.com) log in and sign up for credit card billing for your DSL service.
2) Signup for ParkMyPhone service and send in the forms.
3) No down time should be observed during the porting process.
4) Later, you might receive an email from your DSL company, asking you to switch to online credit card billing (if you haven't already done so).
