Using the telephone book of an e-mail account

You can set up multiple telephone books in the FRITZ!Box and then use a separate one for each of your FRITZ!Fons. You can either save new telephone books in the FRITZ!Box, or you can use the telephone book of an e-mail account with 1&1 or GMX (online telephone book). In this case, the telephone book in the FRITZ!Box is then synchronized with your e-mail account's telephone book on a regular basis.

ATTENTION!Due to a change made by Google, Google Contacts can no longer be directly imported into the FRITZ!Box.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • The telephone book may contain up to 1000 entries. However, if you have several hundred entries, it may take longer to open the user interface and navigation could be slowed down noticeably.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.
