In the Fritz do you mean..?

The relevant section in mine (Telephony > Internet Telephony > Internet
Numbers) has a list of all configured accounts. Select Edit for the one
you want and you should get a page that has a box saying Use Area Code
where there should be a tick.

Then there should be a box saying Enter Area Code where you put 20 (*not*
20 and then another saying Enter National Direct Dialling Code where
there should be a 0.

There is then a tick box saying Keep NDD code, make sure it has a tick.

Leave all other fields as you find them.

Note that you *must* use 20 as the area code not 208 or you won't be able
to dial London numbers beginning with 3 or 7 locally. London's code is
020, remember..!
