6Getting started

WARNING

Do not place your BT Freestyle 6300 in the bathroom or other humid areas.

Handset range

The BT Freestyle 6300 has a range of 300 metres outdoors when there is a clear line of sight between the base and handset. When there is no clear line of sight between the base and handset, e.g. base indoors and handset either indoors or outdoors, the range could be reduced to 50 metres. Thick stone walls will severely affect the range.

Range indicator

The symbol on your handset display indicates when you are in range of the base. If the symbol flashes and you hear a warning beep, you are out of range and will need to move closer to the base.

IMPORTANT

Do not connect the telephone line until your handset is fully charged.

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

Which socket?

Power socket

Telephone line socket

Location

You need to place your BT Freestyle 6300 close enough to 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 6300 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 can help to provide the best signal.

Setting up

1.Plug the mains power cable into the base. Then plug the power adaptor into the wall socket and switch the power on. The Power/In use indicator on the base lights up.

Underside of base

2.Remove the battery compartment cover and insert the 2 x AAA NiMH batteries (supplied) into the handset. Slide the battery compartment cover back into place.

DECT

3.Charge the handset for at least 16 hours by placing it on the base. The red Charging indicator on the base lights

up and remains lit while the handset is on the base (even when the battery is fully charged). When the handset is fully charged the display will show a full battery icon.

4.After 16 hours, plug the telephone line cord into your BT Freestyle 6300 base and the other end into the wall socket.

Talk/Standby time

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

Battery performance

Please note that new NiMH batteries do not reach full capacity until they have been in normal use for several days.

To keep the batteries in the best condition, leave the handset off the charger for a few hours at a time (after the initial 16 hour charge). Running the batteries right down at least once a week will help them last as long as possible.

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 605 8047.

Battery low warning

When the battery charge is low the display will show Battery Low and an empty battery icon. You will also hear the battery low warning beep. Place the handset back on the base to recharge.

Your BT Freestyle 6300 is now ready for use.
