FRITZ!Fon M2 – Service

Registering FRITZ!Fon

FRITZ!Fon is the ideal complement to FRITZ!Box models with integrated DECT base stations (for example FRITZ!Box 7490). However, you can also use FRITZ!Fon's menu to register it with a base station from a different manufacturer. If you are using a FRITZ!Box, then you can either use the telephone's menu or the Wizard for Telephony Devices in the FRITZ!Box user interface to start the registration procedure.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • The base station must support the DECT-GAP profile. 

    Note:DECT-GAP is a common standard for cordless telephones and wireless data transmission. All FRITZ!Box models support this standard.

  1. Click "Telephony" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Telephony Devices" in the "Telephony" menu.
  3. Click the "Configure New Device" button.
  4. Enable the option "Telephone (with or without answering machine)" and click "Next".
