ANSWER: Yes, in fact I think that many, possibly most cordless and landline phones provide this option. Here are a couple of examples:

Some, like this one, permit you to connect the phone to your computer and you can dial using your Microsoft Outlook Contact database:

As an alternative, you can also get VoIP phone that can integrate with your computer such as the MagicJack ( or even software that turns your computer into a VoIP telephone, allowing you to use your computer's contact list.

The additional benefit of being able to synchronize the phone with your computer directory is that this further allows you to keep all your other communication tools, including cellphone synchronized to the same contact list. Very helpful in your personal life - essential as a business tool.

Thank you.

The Above functionality for Telephones and Cordless Phones for Storing contacts can be also applicable for Fax Machines ?

Yes, the same is true for FAX machines. This can be accomplished a few different ways:

1) The FAX Machine itself often has a speed dial option where phone numbers can be stored
2) Use of FAX machine which can be controlled by a PC, and the numbers stored on the PC.
3) FAXes can be sent through online services that provide email to FAX capability, in which case the numbers can be stored of the standard email contact database.

I hope that this helps.
