Hi all, I am on an unlimited fibre plan and as I don't use my land line very much I am getting it disconnected very soon. I was wondering if there is an app or some way of connecting my android cell phone to my fritz box so that I can still use my cordless DECT home phones to make and receive calls via my cell phone ?

 

Thanks.

I highly doubt it. That sounds like a very niche use case.

 

 

 

What you COULD do is get a cheap VOIP subscription from someone like 2talk, and you can make calls via that from the fritzbox and your android phone. I doubt the economics would work out in your favour though, and IME VOIP is pretty sh*t on android anyway.

Not the fritz.

 

You can get dect phones with bluetooth in them to do what you want.

you should be able to use that to get landline calls on your mobile, don't think you'll be able to use your DECT phone to recieve mobile calls though.
