6 Getting started

Handset range

The BT Freestyle 610 has a range of 300 metres outdoors when there is a clear line of sight between the base and 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.

IMPORTANT

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

Do not connect the telephone line to the telephone line wall socket until the handset is fully charged.

Which socket?

Power socket

Line in Telephone line socket

Location

You need to place your BT Freestyle 610 close enough to a mains power and telephone wall socket so that the cables will reach.

The strength of the handset signal depends on where you site the base. Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other electrical appliances to avoid interference. Do not place your BT Freestyle 610 in the bathroom or other humid areas.

Setting up the base and handset

1.Plug the power adaptor and telephone cable into the back of the base. Only use the cables provided with the product.

48 General information

Safety

General

Only use the power supply included with the product. Using an unauthorised power supply will invalidate your guarantee and may damage the telephone. The item code for the base mains power supply is 015123. If you have purchased a BT Freestyle 610 multiple pack, the item code for the charger mains power supply is 015124.

For the handset use only approved Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries. Never use other batteries or conventional alkaline batteries. They could lead to a short circuit or destroy the battery casing.

Recommended batteries should have a power rating of 550mAh 1.2V. Batteries are available from the BT Freestyle 610 Helpline 0870 605 8047.

Do not open the handset or base (other than to change batteries). This could expose you to high voltages or other risks. Contact the Helpline for all repairs.

It is recommended that advice from a qualified medical expert be sought before using this product in the vicinity of emergency/intensive care medical equipment.

It is recommended that if you have a pacemaker fitted you check with a medical expert before using this product.

Your product may interfere with other electrical equipment, e.g. TV and radio sets, clock/alarms and computers if placed too close. It is recommended that you place your product at least one metre away from such appliances to minimise any risk of interference.

Never dispose of batteries in a fire. There is a serious risk of explosion and/or the release of highly toxic chemicals.

Hearing aid?

Please note that the BT Freestyle 610 works by sending radio signals between the handset and base. These signals may interfere with some hearing aids, causing a humming noise.

IMPORTANT

This equipment is not designed for making emergency telephone calls when the power fails. Alternative arrangements should be made for access to emergency services.

Cleaning

Simply clean the handset and base with a damp (not wet) cloth, or an anti-staticwipe. Never use household polish as this will damage the product. Never use a dry cloth as this may cause a static shock.

Environmental

Do not expose to direct sunlight.

The product may heat up when the batteries are being recharged. This is normal. However, we recommend that you do not place the product on antique/veneered wood to avoid damage.

If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047 or email bt.helpdesk@suncorptech.com
