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

Your BT Synergy 3505 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.

Thick stone walls can severely affect the range.

Signal strength

The symbol on your handset display indicates when you are in range. When you are out of range, it flashes andBASE 1 is displayed.

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

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.
