Sorting the telephone book by first or last name

The order in which the telephone book contacts in FRITZ!Fon are sorted depends on how the names were entered in the FRITZ!Box telephone book (first name / last name or last name / first name). This means that you must manually edit all of the contacts in your telephone book if you want to change the order in which they are displayed. However, this is not necessary if you enable the "vanity" search mode in FRITZ!Fon under "Menu > Telephone book > Options". This search mode takes the first and last names of your contacts into account and each time you press a button, the number of possible entries displayed is reduced. Normally you must press a button just two or three times to find the contact you are looking for.

Example:
Press the 7 button to see all of the contacts whose first or last names begin with "P", "Q", "R" or "S". Press the second letter of the name to narrow the search results: If you press the 2 button, you will only see the contacts named "PAul", "SAbine", "SChmidt" or "RAabe".
