Talking caller ID – FRITZ!Fon learns to speak: New features for FRITZ!Fon

New "Voice" Ringtone

The new "Voice" ringtone announces the name of the caller, if available, or the location the call is coming from along with the telephone number of the caller. The feature is available for incoming calls, but a voice announcement can also be selected for alarms and appointments. When you get a call, instead of a ringtone the caller's name is announced if their telephone number is in your contacts. If there is no telephone book entry, the location from which the call is coming is announced, depending on the country, along with the telephone number of the caller.

You'll need to have an active MyFRITZ! account.

This feature can be enabled under "Telephony / Telephony Devices" in the user interface. Select the FRITZ!Fon handset you want to edit, assign one or more telephone numbers for incoming calls, and then switch to "Ringtones". Select there the "Voice" ringtone for the corresponding telephone number at the end of the list. You can configure additional settings under "Voice Ringtone".

For alarms and the appointment calendar you can select the "Voice" ringtone directly on the FRITZ!Fon.

Appointment Calendar

With the new calendar, you can now set up appointments in FRITZ!Fon and create a reminder for them. You can also be reminded of the appointment with the new "Voice" ringtone.

Note: The new features are available for FRITZ!Fon M2, C4, C5 and C6 with the latest handset firmware.
