Telephone Book

Telephony / Telephone Book

You can use the telephone book in various ways: The telephone book is available in the telephone menu on any FRITZ!Fon cordless telephone. On other telephones you can use the quick-dial numbers saved in the telephone book to place calls. And with the phone dialer you can even use the telephone book on the computer.

If you have different FRITZ!Fon cordless phones, you can use a different telephone book on each FRITZ!Fon. For this you can configure multiple telephone books in your FRITZ!Box.
