Getting started

Location

You need to place your BT Freestyle 7310 base 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 7310 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 adaptor into the power socket on the underside of the base. Plug the other end into the mains socket. The Power/In Use and message indicator light up.

Power adaptor cable

WARNING

Do not place your BT Freestyle 7310 in the bathroom or other humid areas.

Handset range

The BT Freestyle 7310 has a range of 300 metres outdoors when there is a clear line of sight between the base and the handset. When there is no clear line of sight between the base and the handset, e.g. base indoors and handset either indoors or outdoors, the range could be reduced to 50 metres. Thick stone walls can severely affect the range.

Signal strength

The symbol on your handset screen indicates when you are in range. When you are out of range, it flashes and the screen displays SEARCHING and there is a beep, you are out of range.

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.

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).

Running the batteries right down at least once a week will help them last as long as possible.

On a full charge, your BT Freestyle 7310 handset gives you up to 10 hours talk time or up to 30 hours standby. Standby time is increased if set to battery save mode, see page 60 for details.

The charge capacity of rechargeable batteries will reduce with time as they wear out, giving the handset less talk/standby time. Eventually they will need to be replaced.

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

3.Charge the handset batteries for at least 16 hours by placing the handset on the base. The screen shows the battery icon filling up.

4.Connect the telephone line cord to the base and plug the other end into the wall socket.
