VirtualPBX prides itself on offering the top features in the industry. One feature that will prevent you from ever missing another important call again, even if you’re on the road, is our voice and fax messages feature. We understand the frustration of missing important phone calls and faxes, so we’ve done our best to ensure that you are connected to your clients, customers, employees, and partners at all times.
From never-full mailboxes, centralized messages, voicemail interrupt, and fax viewing options, we have our bases covered… do you? Check just a few of the benefits below when you use VirtualPBX.
- Never-full mailboxes
Tired of running out of room in your virtual mailbox? VirtualPBX offers the option to automatically open more message space for you when your mailbox becomes full. We move older messages out to make room for any new messages. Your old messages are archived for two weeks so you have plenty of time to recover them or choose to have the message file sent to your email which you can then save indefinitely.
- Centralized messaging
We understand the importance of having more than one phone with its own voicemail, especially when you’re running a business. Rather than searching through each voicemail separately to check your messages, we’ve developed a way to let you centralize all of your messages within a single system.
- Voicemail interrupt
Your VirtualPBX extensions can listen to callers in real-time as they leave a voicemail on your business phone system. You are able to pick up the call at any time, just as you can with a traditional home answering machine, by pressing the pound key.
- Fax viewing options
Get incoming faxes automatically, without the need for a fax machine – it will save you time and money. With VirtualPBX, faxes can be delivered as .pdf files via our web tool or through your email.
Learn more about our voice and faxmail options today. Call VirtualPBX at 1 (888) 825-0800. We look forward to hearing from you!

VirtualPBX is excited to introduce three new Panasonic models to our list of top-of-the-line, cutting-edge VoIP Phones. We have added the Panasonic UT 113 Desk Phone, the Panasonic UT 123 Desk Phone and the Panasonic TGP 550B Desk & Cordless Phone.
Panasonic, a global leader in business communications, has a long history of offering state-of-the-art advanced telephony products. Designed to complement your existing communication infrastructures, Panasonic phones are ideal for home office and business environments, providing outstanding voice quality and a wide range of productivity-boosting options all in feature-rich desk phone replacements. They provide functionality and flexibility for optimal business communications.
The UT 113 and UT 123 desk phones are great choices for almost any desktop, with large digital displays, high-quality speakerphones, hold and mute buttons, and more. The main difference between them is the added pass-through Ethernet port on the UT 123 that lets you “daisy-chain” to another Ethernet device. Ethernet connects a VoIP phone to the Internet, and some offices have only one Ethernet port. Using the UT 123, you can plug the phone into the Ethernet port on the wall and then plug your computer into the phone, so you don’t have to run another Ethernet line into your office.
Of special interest is the TGP 550B Desk & Cordless Phone. This set includes a desk phone that you can place where you work the most and a roaming, cordless handset that you can take with you as you move about your office. Both include the great features you expect, like speakerphones and backlit digital displays.
For more details, look at the VoIP Phone list on our website or call us at 888-825-0800, option 1. All of these phones are available for purchase now.
Panasonic SIP phones are a proven, cost-effective endpoint solution for any size business utilizing the latest in Hosted and Open Source PBX technology. Put your business on the cutting edge of communications wth more than just cutting-edge VoIP phones, do it also with a system that delivers value now… and flexibility for the future.

Who doesn’t love a free iPhone and Android app? If you have a smart phone, you love apps and there are a ton of them out there providing quick, easy and convenient ways to access nearly everything. And thanks to Virtual PBX, there is now a new free app for you to love.
Virtual PBX has released a helpful new application which breaks the mold in the Hosted PBX Market. Virtual PBX Extension Manager, the new free application for Apple iOS and android devices, makes it easy for Virtual PBX customers to have access to all of the most-used functions of their phone system, directly from their iPhones.
“We’re excited to introduce the first business extension management app with this advanced level of functionality for iPhone users,” said Paul Hammond, CEO of Virtual PBX. “As an iPhone user myself, I love to have the Virtual PBX features I use the most right at my fingertips, and I am certain our customers will appreciate it, too.”
Using a simple, intuitive interface users can manage extensions on multiple Virtual PBX accounts, mark their extensions as unavailable, and even redirect incoming business calls to any of up to four different phones. Virtual PBX’s free application also includes iPhone-based presence management, a feature exclusive to Virtual PBX.
The Virtual PBX Extension Manager App makes presence management available through the user’s phone, allowing them to log in and out of queues as needed. With the use of exclusive intelligent queue algorithms, Virtual PBX reduces caller hold times by not forcing calls to extensions where no one will answer. This means better efficiency for the customer and happier callers. And who doesn’t want happier callers? Have happier callers with the new free app from Virtual PBX.

We are excited to announce several changes in the flat-rate phone plan from VirtualPBX that will be of immediate benefit to all clients of these plans. The net effect is that everyone on these plans can save even more!
First, the price for our 1 User Flat-rate phone plan has been reduced from $39.99/month down to $34.99/ month. Effective immediately, everyone on a 1-user plan will see a $5 per month reduction in cost.
Second, we are making all ACD queues in flat-rate plans totally free. If you have multiple departments, such as sales, customer service, billing, etc., you can set up a True ACD queue for each one at no additional cost. And you get all the same benefits – skills-based ranking, load balancing, call recording, and everything else – all at no cost. If you’re a smaller company, you can look more professional by setting up additional departments with more queues, while keeping costs low by routing calls to the same employees for each queue. The price of ACD Queues on flat-rate plans was $15.00 per month, each. Now all ACD Queues on Flat Rate plans are Free.
Finally, we’ve cut the cost for additional phone numbers in half! You’ve always received 2 free phone numbers with our flat-rate plans, and additional numbers were $10 per month each. Now, they’re just $5 a month. What can you do with more phone numbers at this new low price?
- Optimize your marketing costs by assigning a separate phone number to each advertisement, campaign or promotion, and see which campaign gets the most calls.
- Get extra direct-dial numbers for your top executives so your most important clients can reach them directly, without going through the auto-attendant.
- Add local phone numbers in multiple cities to give your company a local “feel” and generate more business.
- Add a nationwide toll free number so clients anywhere can reach you for free. It will increase your inbound call volume and will also give you a stronger company image.
All these changes are available immediately to both new and existing clients. For more information, call one of our sales reps at 888-825-0800, option 1.
