WARNING

Do not place your BT Studio 1500 in the bathroom or other humid areas.

Handset range

The BT Studio 1500 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 icon on your handset indicates when you are in range. When it flashes, you are out of range.

When you move out of range of the base, you will hear the out of range tone. This tone is repeated until you move back into range.

IMPORTANT

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

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

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. New batteries are available from the BT Studio 1500 Helpline on 0870 605 8047.
