8Getting started

WARNING

Do not place your BT Diverse 6250 in the bathroom or other humid areas.

Handset range

The BT Diverse 6250 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

Thesymbol 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.

Which socket?

Power socket

Telephone line socket

Location

You need to place your BT Diverse 6250 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 Diverse 6250 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 lights up.

Battery level

The battery symbol shows the current level

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 Diverse 6250 handset gives up to 13 hours talk time or up to 170 hours standby.

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.
