Using the telephone book search with FRITZ!Fon
You can set up several telephone books in the FRITZ!Box and then use a separate telephone book for each of your FRITZ!Fons. There are two different ways to search for entries in the respective telephone book on the FRITZ!Fon.
Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.
1 Standard telephone book search
The standard telephone book search is enabled in the factory settings and works like the search on your mobile telephone. You must keep pressing the number key that corresponds to the desired letter until the entries that begin with that letter are displayed.
When you press the "5" key twice, all of the telephone book entries beginning with "K" are displayed. To refine your search, then press the "7" key three times to display all of the telephone book entries beginning with "KR".
2 Simplified (vanity) telephone book search
With the "Simplified telephone book search (vanity)", you only have to press the number key once for a letter.
When you press the "5" key, all of the telephone book entries beginning with "J", "K" or "L" are displayed. If necessary, you can then refine the search results by pressing the number key for the second letter of the telephone book entry you are searching for, then press the number key for the third letter, and so on.
