Storing and synchronising contacts centrally

On this page:
Learn how to store your contacts in the main phone book and link to your macOS address book or use a plugin to link to Windows Outlook.

Storing contacts centrally

You can either store and manage your contacts directly on the cordless HD-Phone or centrally on your router. This ensures that all of your contacts are stored in a safe place, even if you change your phone.

Managing contacts

Manage your contacts in the web portal (http://internetbox.home or 192.168.1.1). You can add, change and delete contacts in the “Telephony” > “Phone Book” menu. Please note that you only have access when your home network is connected to your Internet-Box. You can also manage your contacts directly on your HD-Phone handset or via the Home app.

You can add, change or delete your contacts directly using the handset in Windows Outlook (via plugin) or in the macOS address book.The central phone book can be synchronised with a local Windows Outlook contact folder (via plug-in) or with the macOS address book.

 To the Outlook plugin instructions

A personal address book is available for Smart Business Connect (for each telephone number). The main phone book can be synchronised with the macOS address book or a local Windows Outlook folder (via plugin). 

Synchronisation is only from your computer to your phones (one-way synchronisation).

To the Outlook plugin instructions

To use the personal address book, please contact your partner. Ensure that you have the following to hand:

  • Yealink telephone
  • Personal Swisscom Login
  • The personal address book feature is activated by the partner

Entry in the telephone book

Would you like people to be able to look you up in the public phone book? An entry in the official local.ch directory ensures your phone number and address are listed in both the printed and electronic phone book. You can register your number and address online and edit or add to the entry at any time (e.g. when you change address, get married, have children etc.). 

Deactivate address updating in My Swisscom to prevent your address being passed on to third parties.
