Sync online contacts between FRITZ!Box, FRITZ!Fon and your smartphone

Whether directly via FRITZ!Box, on the FRITZ!Fon or your smartphone: Have all your contacts easily at hand wherever you are. You don't have to worry about syncing data, since changes in your online contacts are automatically synced with the FRITZ!Box telephone book.

CardDAV and online providers

Simply use the telephone book of a CardDAV or online provider, such as Apple or Google. The online contacts in the FRITZ!Box are then regularly synced and do not have to be managed twice. You can also start syncing at any time with the click of the mouse in the FRITZ!Box user interface.

What are the advantages of online contacts?

Thanks to automatic syncing, you can access your contacts quickly and easily at any time via FRITZ!Box, FRITZ!Fon or your smartphone. This means you don't have to manage your contacts on different devices. Whether for business or private use - all end devices have the same information. Furthermore, all authorized persons can access, add to or change the contact data. Even if a terminal device is lost, stolen, faulty or changed, it's still possible to access all contact data as it is stored separately on the server. This means the contacts can be quickly synced with a new device.

Shared or individual contacts

Depending on your needs and if you have multiple FRITZ!Fon devices, you can assign each FRITZ!Fon its own contacts. Or you can share a single telephone book on multiple phones.

Once connected - always up to date

The online contacts in the FRITZ!Box are synced with your online provider's contacts on a regular basis. This applies to new telephone book entries, changes to contacts and if you delete contacts online in your account with the online provider. If you've added, changed or deleted contacts, you can also start the update with the online provider in the FRITZ!Box telephone book with the "Synchronize" button.

FRITZ! Lab: FRITZ!Fon voice ring tones

In addition to classic ring tones, FRITZ! Lab 7.39 (and later) allows you to set up voice output on the FRITZ!Fon, also known as voice ring tones. If you have voice ring tones set up, instead of a ring tone, either the name of the caller will be announced, if it's in the FRITZ!Box contacts, or the location from which the call is coming (based on the caller's country and area code). This new feature also works with online contacts that you've set up.

All set up in a few steps

In the FRITZ!Box user interface you can set up new online contacts under "Telephony > Telephone Book". Detailed step-by-step instructions can be found in the Knowledge Base.
