Using quick-dial numbers with FRITZ!Fon

If you hold down the quick-dial keys on your FRITZ!Fon, you can quickly access various functions and telephone numbers. You can assign telephone numbers to keys 2 to 9 so you can call these parties even faster. In addition, you can easily lock the keys on your telephone to prevent entries from being made accidentally, or you can enable the Do Not Disturb function if you want to temporarily disable the ringer.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

2 Assigning a telephone number to a quick-dial number

FRITZ!Fon uses the quick-dial numbers 02-09 from the FRITZ!Box's first telephone book. For example, if you press and hold down the number 2, the party you assigned the quick-dial number "02" to is called:

  1. Click "Telephony" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Telephone Book" in the "Telephony" menu.
  3. Switch to the first telephone book. You cannot configure quick-dial numbers in the other telephone books.
  4. Click the (Edit) button for the telephone book entry you want to assign to a quick-dial key.
  5. Click on "More Options" and select a telephone number from the "Telephone number" drop-down list.

    Important:If telephone book entries that have more than one telephone number (for example "Mobile" and "Business"), a quick-dial number can only be assigned to one of the telephone numbers.

  6. Enter a number between 2 and 9 in the "Quick-dial number" field.

    Important:The quick-dial number may not be assigned to any other telephone book entry yet. If the quick-dial number is already in use, you must edit that telephone book entry first.

  7. Click "Apply" to save the settings.
  8. Repeat steps 4 to 7 for each telephone book entry you want to call using a quick-dial number.
