I'm about to get Fibre installed with Vodafone as ISP, and will pay Vodafone for Voice.


I know I'm entering "unsupported" territory here but I intend to use Fritz!Box 7490 as the router.


I have seen DECT Fritz!Fons around - what do they do and are they compatible with Vodafone Voice? Or would I be wasting my time with them?


If the landline has minimal usage, am I better off going with 2Talk? and does THAT they require a Fritz!Fon? Sorry these are so newbie questions.




Also if 2Talk is better, can I port my 03 number to them??

Hi, yes you can use the Fritz on Voda, absolutely no issues, but be aware Voda will not be able to assist if you have an issue and the router becomes the suspect.


As for Voda voice, you will most likely not be able to use the voice ATA on the Fritz to get a Voda Voip service working, they simply will not pass out the credentials to connect.


You could instead ask only a naked fibre connection from Voda and use 2Talk.


As for FritzFon, the Fritz router also contains a DECT basestation, and obviously an ATA, you can purchase FritzFons which are just GAP compliant DECT handsets, pair it to your router and voila you have phone service.


The Fritz router also has a voice line port for other phones or DECT basestations etc, but you can also use any GAP compliant DECT phones  (anyone correct me if I am wrong) from various vendors (ie Panasonic etc) and use those also.
