This user guide applies to both single
and multiple handset packs. The
internal call functions described in
this guide apply only to BT Freelance
XA 3000 base stations with more than
one handset connected.
If you wear a hearing aid, please
note that the BT Freelance XA 3000
works by sending radio signals
between the base station and the
handset. These signals may interfere
with some hearing aids, causing a
humming noise.

Setting up
Follow these steps to set up your BT Freelance 3000 ready for use
Plan the location
Position your BT Freelance XA 3000
within 2 metres of a power socket and
phone socket otherwise extension
cables will be required.
Make sure it is at least 1 metre away
from other electrical products to avoid
interference.
Note
The message counter will flash
between O and C until the day and
time are set, see page 15.
SETTING UP
Do not place your BT Freelance 3000
product in the bathroom or other
humid areas.
Power/In Use light comes on. Your
BT Freelance XA 3000 will announce
the default. Settings of the answering
machine, see page 16, and the
message counter will be displayed.
Note
The BT Freelance XA 3000 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 will severely
affect the range.

Connect the power supply to
the base
Plug the power adaptor into the mains
power socket and switch on. The green
Note
The base station must be plugged into
the mains power socket at all times.

Install the rechargeable
batteries in the handset
Please note that the red charging light
will remain on even when the batteries
are fully charged.
BATTERY LEVELS
WEAK
SETTING UP
The handset uses two rechargeable
Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) AAA
batteries which are supplied. Take
care to insert the batteries as shown
and then fit the battery cover (the
battery cover may be found in the
packaging with the batteries).
3
Charge the handset batteries
for at least 16 hours
Before you use your BT Freelance XA
3000 for the first time, it is important
to have the handset batteries fully
charged. The batteries need to charge
continuously for at least 16 hours
to reach full charge.
Place the handset on the base. The
red charging light will come on. The
handset comes pre-registered to the
base station as HANDSET HS1. This
is shown on the display. The
icon
and the battery icon are shown on
the display. Once the handset is fully
charged, the display shows a full
battery symbol.
13
HALF-FULL

Battery low warning
If the handset battery symbol is empty
and flashing, and you hear a warning
beep every 10 seconds, you will need
to recharge your handset before you
can use it.
Note
The
symbol on your handset display
indicates when you are in range of
the base station. If the symbol flashes
and you hear a warning beep, you
are out of range and will need to move
closer to the base station.

Connect the telephone line
cord to the BT Freelance XA
3000 base station
5
Connect the telephone line cord
Under no circumstances should
non-rechargeable batteries be used.
Only use the approved batteries, type:
rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride
(Ni-MH); size AAA; capacity
550mAh 1.2v. Using unapproved
batteries will invalidate your guarantee
and may damage the telephone.
To keep your batteries in the best
condition, leave the handset off the
base station for a few hours at a time.
(after the intial 16 hour charge).
Fully discharging the batteries at
least once a week will help them last
as long as possible. However, 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 Freelance
Helpline 0870 605 8047.
SETTING UP
Please note, however, that new Nickel
Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) batteries
do not reach their full capacity until
they have been in normal use for
several days.
Note
It is recommended that you do not
connect the telephone line cord to the
phone socket until your handset is
fully charged. This will prevent the
risk of the batteries discharging
during a conversation, which could
cause you to lose a call.
Note: Under ideal conditions, the
handset batteries should give about
12 hours talktime or 200 hours
standby on a single charge. Optimum
times for talk and standby are only
achieved when the handset batteries
are fully charged.
