FRITZ!Box 6840 LTE – Service

Selecting a different outgoing number when making a call

Telephones connected to the FRITZ!Box automatically use a certain number to make calls, depending on the setting. However, when you make a call, you can override this setting and select a different number to use for the call. The telephone's number settings and dialing rules are then suspended for this call.

1 Configuring a telephone to use the keypad function

The following steps are only necessary if the cordless telephone is not registered with the FRITZ!Box's base station:

Note:If you are using a telephone that is registered with the base station of your FRITZ!Box (for example FRITZ!Fon C5), you do not have to configure it to use the keypad function.

  • Configure the devices so that you can dial special characters (such as * and #) or send keypad sequences (sequences of symbols and digits, such as *121#) with them.

    Note:Many Gigaset telephones can be configured as follows: Select "Operation at a PBX" from the telephone's menu, then select "Dialing options" and enable the option "Dial * and #".

2 Using a keypad sequence to select the outgoing number

  1. Click "Telephony" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Telephone Numbers" in the "Telephony" menu.
  3. Check which keypad sequence is given in the "Preselection" column for the telephone number you would like to use to make the call.
  4. Dial the keypad sequence before the number you would like to call.

    Example:
    To call the number 1234 using the second Internet telephone number, dial *122#1234.
