Making the message key on FRITZ!Fon stop flashing

FRITZ!Fon automatically informs you about missed calls, new messages on the FRITZ!Box answering machine, software updates, new e-mails, podcasts and RSS feeds. When you receive new messages, you hear a beep, the message key flashes, and the "New messages" icon appears on the display.

If you are using several FRITZ!Fons and all of them are configured identically, then you can stop the message key from flashing on all of the telephones at the same time.

  1. Press the message key on the telephone.
  2. If you received different messages, select the message type (for example "missed calls" or "Software update" and press "OK".
  3. Select a message and then press "OK". New messages are displayed in bold.

As soon as you press the message key on one of the telephones, the key on this telephone stops flashing. The flashing stops even if you have not read all of the new messages. If you also want the message key on your other telephones to stop flashing, you must mark all of the messages as read. In this case, it does not matter which telephone you read the messages on. If there are any unread messages on the other telephone because it is configured differently, for example, its key will continue to flash.
