8 Getting started

WARNING

Do not place your BT Equinox 1350 in the bathroom or other humid areas.

Handset range

The BT Equinox 1350 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 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.

IMPORTANT

Do not connect the telephone line until at least one of the handsets 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 Equinox 1350 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 Equinox 1350 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 cable into the base and plug the other end into the wall socket.

If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047

BT Equinox 1350 – Edition 4.1 – 27.09.05 – 6576

Getting started

9

 

 

2.Insert 2 x AAA NiMH batteries supplied into the handset. Slide the battery compartment cover into place.

3.Charge the handset for at least 24 hours by placing it on the base. The red Charging light comes on. The handset is pre-registeredto the base as Handset 1. The screen shows the standby display.

4.After 24 hours, plug the telephone line cord into the wall socket and your BT Equinox 1350 base.

The red Charging light stays on while the handset is on the base, even when the batteries are fully charged.

Talk/Standby time

Under ideal conditions, fully charged handset batteries should give up to 9 hours talktime or 70 hours standby on a single charge.

Battery low warning

The handset battery symbol is empty and you will hear a warning beep. Start recharging your handset right away.

When charging the battery, level bars are animated.

Replacing batteries

Use only rechargeable 750mAh or higher capacity AAA NiMH batteries.

Battery performance

When batteries are fully charged the display shows three green bars.

To keep your batteries in the best conditions, leave the handset off the base for a few hours at a time (after the initial 24 hour charge).

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

If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047

BT Equinox 1350 – Edition 4.1 – 27.09.05 – 6576

10 Getting started

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 Equinox Helpline 0870 605 8047.

Helpline

If you have any difficulties setting up your BT Equinox 1350, please call the BT Equinox Helpline on

0870 605 8047.

Range indicator

The symbol on your handset display indicates when you are in range of the base. If you are out of range, thesymbol will flash. If you are on a call you will hear a beep in the earpiece and you will need to move closer to the base. The handset display showsBase and the number of the base last used.

Day, date and time

If you have subscribed to your network’s Caller Display service, the time and date will be set automatically when you receive your first call. However, the day will not be set.

When the day is set, your answering machine will announce the correct day your messages are received. To set the day, date and time manually, see Time Settings, page 83.

Your BT Equinox 1350 is now ready for use.

If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047
