Introduction Your Freestyle 90 has been designed for ease of use and made to the very high standards

set by BT.

We thank you for making the right choice and expect that you will have many years of quality service.

Please read the instructions carefully before use and keep this user guide for future reference.

For warranty purposes, proof of purchase is required, so please keep your receipt.

Emergency calls

The emergency services can be contacted in the UK by dialling 999. You may also dial 112, which is valid in any country that is a member of the European Community.

As the Freestyle 90 is a mains-poweredcordless telephone, you may not be able to make an emergency call in certain situations:

If there is severe radio interference.

If the handset battery fails.

If there is a power cut and there is no back-upbattery in the base unit.

If your Freestyle 90 is connected to a PBX (switchboard), you may have to dial an access number before 999 to contact the emergency services.

Some switchboards cannot dial out during a power failure.

Setting up Follow these steps to get your Freestyle 90 ready for use.

Important

As this product is rechargeable, it is normal that a certain amount of heat will be produced in its day-to-dayoperation. While this is entirely safe, we advise against placing this product on antique, veneered or wooden surfaces as damage may occur.

Plan where you will put your

Freestyle 90.

It should be within two metres of a power socket and the phone socket.

You need enough room for the base unit’s telescopic aerial to be fully extended.

For the best operating conditions, try to place the base unit away from large metal objects and other electrical appliances.

Check that your Freestyle 90 is complete. When you unpack, you should have:

Freestyle 90 handset.

Freestyle 90 base unit with telephone line cord attached.

Mains power adaptor plug.

Wall mounting bracket with screws.

Spare Quickdial directory label.

Electrical storm warning

1 During periods of electrical storm, you are advised to disconnect your apparatus because damage may occur.

2 If a fault occurs during the12-monthwarranty period and it is due to accidental or wilful damage (including lightning and electrical damage), BT will not replace or repair free of charge.

3 Insert battery in base
unit (for back-up only)
9V
To fit the back-up battery, release the retaining clips, lift off the battery compartment cover and insert one new PP3 alkaline battery (not supplied) as shown in the diagram above. Replace the battery compartment cover.
A good quality, fresh battery should last about six months. To ensure constant battery back-up, replace it every six months.
If your Freestyle 90 is your only phone, you should fit a back-up battery in the base unit so that your phone can always be used in emergencies.
If the power fails, the back-up battery will give you up to one hour talktime or seven hours on standby.

Setting up

Like all cordless phones, your Freestyle 90 handset will need charging for 24 hours before use.

1 Handset aerial

Your Freestyle 90 uses a compact aerial which does not pull out.

2 Check your telephone wall socket

If you do not have a modern phone socket, call BT on Freefone 0800 800 150 and ask for an engineer to come and fit the right socket within two metres of a mains socket. This is a chargeable service.

Warnings

1 Do not try to use any power supply other than the one provided. This may permanently damage your Freestyle 90.

2 Your Freestyle 90 should not be fitted in wet or damp conditions, for example in a bathroom. Also, the handset should not be left out in the rain.

3 There is a slight chance that your phone could be damaged by an electrical storm. We recommend that you unplug the base unit from the mains during storms.

POWER

When the power is switched on at the mains, the red POWER light on the base unit will light up.

Mains power adaptor

The Freestyle 90 must only be used with the adaptor supplied.

Using any other adaptor will result in non-compliancewith EN60950:1992, and will invalidate the approval given to this apparatus.

6 Charge the handset

When you first use your Freestyle 90, the rechargeable battery in the handset needs charging for 24 hours.

Make sure you have connected your Freestyle 90 to the mains power supply; see steps 4 and 5.

Make sure the red POWER light is on.

Place the handset on the base unit, ensuring the contacts are touching. The CHARGING light comes on.

7

Setting up

The charging light will remain constantly lit while the handset is placed on the base unit.

As a rule, placing the handset on the base unit overnight will keep the battery fully charged for all normal use.

When fully charged and in good condition, the handset battery will provide up to 5 hours continuous talk time or 72 hours standby.

If the handset battery is running low, the BATT LOW light will flash every10-15seconds.

BATT

LOW

If you are making a call and the handset battery is running low, the phone will beep every 10-15seconds.

Place the handset on the base unit to recharge.

Battery care

The battery cannot be overcharged. However, leaving the handset on the base unit all the time can deteriorate a rechargeable battery. To get the longest possible life from your battery, take the handset off the base unit for a few hours each day.

7 Plug the phone into the BT socket

You can now use the phone, store numbers in the memory and change some of the settings as desired.
