Disable fax to main number

Our main number (tollfree) shows as 'Voice and Fax' and there is no option to make it voice only. About 90% of our missed calls are failed faxes to our tollfree number. This is a common form of spam from fly-by-night travel agencies and the like. How do I set it to voice only? I have no intention to "Act today for a one-time package offer to Mazatlan" or get special pricing on federal labor law posters or lower my credit card processing rates.

We had the same problem. We had to add another line as our Main Number behind the scenes , but kept our advertised number as a Voice Only line.

Hi Jay,  As of now it's not possible to change the main number to just voice, or fax only. I changed this post to an "Idea" topic.  Anyone else who would like to see this feature added please click the "like" button above.

I also want to disable the fax function on our main number.  Tired of spam faxes.

We need to disable the fax function.  We don't use it and it gives a false message indicator on our desk phone.  Please send this as a notification when it's updated.

Mary, it's been five years with no indication this will ever happen so don't hold your breath. What's silly is that this would probably require about two lines of code to give the option of Voice+Fax or Voice-only.
