Can BlackBerry’s Receive Faxes Through Visual Voicemail?

 VVM Fax VVM Fax2

There is an interesting story coming out of Sleepy2009 at NerdBerry. He was testing out a fax machine and decided to test sending a fax to his BlackBerry Z30 line thinking it would just be a missed call. Instead he ended up with a blank test fax. Then he decided to try it out again on his BlackBerry Z30 with OS 10.2.1.2160 on T-Mobile with a real fax and it came through as a Visual Voicemail Message. I really think this is a function of the T-Mobile Visual Voicemail rather than something BlackBerry has implemented in BlackBerry 10. I have tried it out on my AT&T BlackBerry Z30 and have had no luck but I am not subscribed to Visual Voicemail.

So I thought I would throw it out there. Does anyone with Visual Voicemail want to try faxing their phone and seeing what happens? I am really curious…

I did a bit of searching around the interwebs and there are random forum threads, both recent and very old, mentioning Faxes through Visual Voicemail. Is this really a supported feature?

  1. After testing it and some searches this seems to be a feature offered through T-Mobile it doesn’t seem to work with other carriers. Here is what T-Mobile says on their website “Part of the Voicemail system, the Faxpost is a special service designed to manage fax messages. If your line is busy, unavailable or when a fax call is unanswered (because, for instance, your mobile phone happens to be disconnected from your computer or fax machine), your fax messages will be delivered to a fax mailbox, from where they can be retrieved at any time.” http://www.t-mobile.hu/english/services/messaging

  2. That would be a nice ATT feature but I think we all know how that’s not gonna happen. I will try it in the morning when I get to my office just to see. Maybe I’ll be surprised.
