  • When transfering an entry between two vCard handsets: If the recipient does not yet have an entry with the name, a new entry is created.
  • If an entry with the name already exists, this entry is extended by the new numbers. If there are more than 8 numbers in total, a second entry with the same name is created.
  • If the recipient is not a vCard handset: A separate entry is created and sent for each number. Your handset receives entries from a non-vCard handset: Entries with numbers already stored are discarded, otherwise a new entry is created.
  • CAT-iq support has to be activated on the FRITZ!Box.
