Entering landline numbers in FRITZ!Box

Once you have connected your FRITZ!Box to your landline (analog or ISDN), you can immediately make telephone calls over the landline without having to configure any additional settings. You must only enter your landline numbers if you have more than one number and you would like to

  • assign a landline number to a particular telephone or other telephony device.
  • configure a convenience function offered by the FRITZ!Box for a landline number, such as call diversion or dialing rules.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.

1 Preparations

  2. Click "Region and Language" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Regional Options" tab.
  4. Select the country from the drop-down list.

    Important:Changing the regional options resets the telephony settings. You must then reconfigure all of the telephony settings (such as telephony devices, call diversion settings, dialing rules).
