Saving and restoring FRITZ!Box telephone books

You can use the FRITZ!Box user interface to save the telephone books configured in the FRITZ!Box. Then you can always use the backup to restore your telephone book, which means you are protected against data loss. Telephone books can also be copied from one FRITZ!Box to another, for example when switching to a different FRITZ!Box model.
