Once you’ve sent a fax or received one from someone else, you can view it by navigating to Phone via the bottom menu bar and selecting the Fax tab. Here, you can view either all faxes, sent faxes, received faxes, or failed faxes.

Filtering your faxes

You can use the search field above the faxes list to search for faxes sent or received from a specific number or contact. You can also tap on the filter icon below the Fax tab to view specific types of faxes.

Viewing your faxes

When you’re viewing a list of faxes, each entry displays the following:
  • Status: The icon at far left indicates the status of the fax. See the next section to learn more
  • Sender’s name: The sender’s name (if available) or number is shown for received faxes
  • Recipient’s name: The recipient’s name (if available) or number is shown for sent faxes

Understanding the status of a fax

The status of the fax tells you whether your fax was successfully sent or not. When you send or receive a fax, that fax will have one of the following statuses:
  • Sending: A blue ‘Sending’ label underneath the fax recipient’s name or number indicates that the fax has been sent but not yet received 
  • Sent: A fax paper icon with an arrow going to the right indicates that the fax has been delivered to the recipient
  • Received: A fax paper icon with an arrow going to the left indicates that the fax that has been sent to you and you have received 
  • Failed: A red fax paper icon with an exclamation mark indicates that the fax has failed to send due to technical issues
