Recording telephone calls with FRITZ!Fon

You can use FRITZ!Fon to record live telephone calls with an internal answering machine on the FRITZ!Box. The answering machine records the conversation and after you hang up you can listen to the voice message on the answering machine.

1 Setting up an answering machine

The following steps are only necessary if you have not configured an answering machine in the FRITZ!Box yet:

2 Recording a telephone call

  1. Press the "Menu" key on the telephone while conducting a call.
  2. Confirm the question "Did all parties agree to recording call?" with "Yes".
  3. If you configured more than one answering machine in the FRITZ!Box, select the answering machine that should record the call.

Now the internal answering machine will record the call for up to 10 minutes. You cannot increase the recording length by connecting a USB storage device. After the call, the FRITZ!Box will signal an incoming call on the answering machine and you can play back the recording. The recorded call will also be forwarded by e-mail if you have configured the answering machine accordingly.
