6Getting started

WARNING

Do not place your BT Freestyle 3200 in the bathroom or other humid areas.

Handset range

The BT Freestyle 3200 has a range of 300 metres outdoors when there is a clear line of sight between the base and the handset. Any obstruction between the base and handset will reduce the range significantly. With the base indoors and handset either indoors or outdoors, the range will normally be up to 50 metres. Thick stone walls can severely affect the range.

Signal strength

Thesymbol on your handset screen indicates when you are in range. When you are out of range, thesymbol flashes, and the screen displaysSearching. You should move closer to the base if this happens to ensure the full functionality of your phone.

IMPORTANT

Do not connect the telephone line until at least one of the handsets is fully charged.

The base station must be plugged into the mains power at all times.

Location

You need to place your BT Freestyle 3200 base within 2 metres of a mains power and telephone socket so that the cables will reach.

Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other electrical appliances to avoid interference.

Your BT Freestyle 3200 works by sending radio signals between the handset and base. The strength of the signal depends on where you site the base. Putting it as high as possible ensures the best signal.

Setting up

1.Plug the mains power cable into the power socket on the back of the base. Plug the other end into the mains socket and switch on.

Power adaptor cable

The main handset is pre-registeredto the base as–1–(Handset 1). This is shown on the display. When the handset is fully charged the display shows thesymbol.

4.After 16 hours, connect the telephone line cord to the base and plug the other end into the wall socket.

Telephone line cord

Talk/Standby time

Under ideal conditions, fully charged handset batteries should give about 10 hours talk time or 100 hours standby time on a single charge.

Battery low warning

If the symbol is flashing, you will need to recharge your handset before using it.

Battery performance

To keep your batteries in the best condition, leave the handset off the base for a few hours at a time (after the initial 16 hour charge).

New NiMH batteries do not reach full capacity until they have been in normal use for several days. Running the batteries right down at least once a week will help them last as long as possible.

IMPORTANT

Only use the power supply and telephone line cord supplied with your BT Freestyle 3200 otherwise the telephone may not work.

If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 240 3962 or email bt.helpdesk@vtecheurope.com

8Getting started

The charge capacity of rechargeable batteries will reduce with time as they wear out, so reducing the talk/standby time of the handset. Eventually they will need to be replaced. New batteries can be obtained from the BT Freestyle Helpline 0870 240 3962.

Batteries and handset may become warm during charging. This is normal.

Your BT Freestyle 3200 uses the 24 hour clock.

If you have more than one handset registered to your base, you only need to set the date and time on one handset and the other handsets will be automatically updated.
