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.

Synchronising contacts

Synchronise your main phone book and connect contacts with your Windows Outlook or macOS contacts. Your contacts will then all be listed in Outlook/macOS well as on your phones.

 

The Business Telephony and Business Communication mobile app does not support contact synchronisation of the main phone book because the LDAP interface for contact lookup is not supported.Your alternative

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.).
