Configuring the weather start screen on FRITZ!Fon

FRITZ!Fon allows you to select a start screen with the current weather forecast. The "Weather" start screen displays the weather station used, current temperature, and the high and low temperatures for the day. Since the forecast data and weather station selection are provided by the German Meteorological Service, the start screen can only be used in Germany at the moment.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • A FRITZ!Fon C4, C5, C6 or X6 is being used.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

1 Installing the latest software

  2. Click "Telephone Numbers" in the "Telephony" menu.
  3. Click on the "Line Settings" tab.
