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.
