Set the date and time on the Fritz! Fon

Fritz! Fon date and time

Today was the big day again when the time ran out Summertime has been converted. And promptly some clocks still surprise me with the wrong time. I thought that in the meantime all devices with WLAN would update themselves and switch to the correct time, but even my Fritz! Fon MT-D does not have the correct time for me today - although it is connected to the Fritz! Box.

Update to the Fritz! Fon C6 and the Fritz! Box 7490

I just got the message from my reader Werner that he didn't get any further with the instructions here. He has a Fritz!Box 7490 and a Fritz!Fon C6 in operation and then eventually contacted AVM Support. They had the solution: Disconnect the Fritz!Box from the power supply for a few seconds and start it again. After that, Werner's date and time were also set correctly. True to the motto "Have you tried switching it off and on again?".

Instructions: How to set the date and time

So as not to drag on the article unnecessarily: There is no menu item in the Fritz! At first I thought that this might be done via the Fritz! Box, but no, it is still quite stone-age how to change the time on the MT-D - with a code that you enter on the telephone keypad.

Fritz! Fon date and time
The redial shows the code (part is missing at the front!) That I entered in order to set the date and time correctly.

The structure of the code is as follows: # 83 * HHmmDTMMJJJJ * # 91 **

In my case, the required entry was: Phone code: # 83 * 232830032014 * # 91 **

This then leads to the fact that the Fritz! Fox is switched to March 30.03.2014, 23 and the time of 28:XNUMX pm.

In this sense:

Happy summer time!

    1. Much, much easier
      Go to menu / settings / then login press this briefly then press BACK immediately. Your phone searches briefly, then jumps back and Zack is the current time !!!!

      1. OK, sounds interesting. I haven't tried it, but this still requires the Fritz!Box to deliver the time. This can work with the current Fritz!Fon model, but it didn't work with my old one. But if you want to set the time, you can definitely try your “trick”!

  1. I recently bought the Fritzbox. So far so well, but to set to summer time is not possible. Who helps me. Nowadays one should assume that this is automatic. I can't find any information in the operating instructions.

    1. Yes that's true. There is no evidence. However, because it works automatically. :)
      A time server is entered in the Fritz! Box settings, via which the Fritz! Box gets the current time. As a result, summer and winter time are also automatically adopted. I have to say, however, that my last Fritz! Box obviously had an error here, because every few weeks it no longer took the time correctly through the time server. Your box may also be defective. I would report it to the seller, because an exchange may still be possible now. Unfortunately, my box was already too old.

  2. Great, thank you. Quickly solved the problem. The wrong time prevented the correct switching of the Smart Home modules and the doorbell block at the right time.

    1. Hello Jan! Yes, that's right, but I had the case that the timeserver didn't work and the time didn't adjust. That's why I had to correct them using the keyboard. The Fritz! Box normally uses a time server that is already set at the factory. This provides the current time and the Fritz! Box sends it to the DECT handsets or the Fritz! Fon. As a rule, you don't have to worry about a time change, because it is done automatically.

  3. It's a lot easier! keep the red button pressed down, 10 sec. wait again keep the red button pressed starts up. clock is set automatically.

  4. I also see the reference 'Stone Age' that way!
    I have a Fritz! Box 7490, but do not register the C5 there because it continues to ring funny when I accept a call on a convenience telephone on the wired Fon1 connection. The box is up to date.
    The time has set to log the C5 on and off, but I don't think that's funny.
    With AVM I did not expect such behavior from the box or the Fon.
    Incidentally, the code example did not work.

  5. I have the Fritzbox 6590 cable (FritzOS 7.27) and the FritzFon C6. The time was / is always displayed correctly on the C6. I bought it myself when the 6590 cable was released because the update policy of my provider at the time annoyed me. My provider (PYÜR) will soon switch to fiber optics at my place of residence, which the PYÜR consultant announced to me this week during an unannounced visit. This should double the upload and download speed. Nothing should change in the monthly costs. I'm curious whether this will come true.

      Well, I keep my fingers crossed that the doubling will work. Always happy to take with you! : D But what about the time: I don't know. I can not explain it. Have you changed the timeserver in the Fritz! Box to another?

  6. Fritz!Box 7530 with the latest updates. The new C6 font is very good, but I'm tearing my hair out trying to solve the daylight saving time problem.
    I'm from the UK and it's difficult to find a solution. I've tried all the examples posted here but still no luck.

  7. I found a solution to my post above. Fritz!Box 7530 Plus Fritz!box C6 phone.
    In the Fritzbox go to “SYSTEM” and then to “Region and Language”. You should see 3 tabs.
    Region>Language Settings>Time Zone.
    Click the “Time Zone” tab. Here you can set the time zone manually.
    As I live in the UK you can change your time zone relative to GMT. So I set GMT + 1 hour.
    Then I unchecked “Automatically adjust to daylight saving time.” Scroll down and click Apply.

    After you change the time zone, the FRITZ!Box will automatically restart to apply the changes.
