Location
You need to place your BT Diverse 6210 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 6210 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 lights up.
WARNING
Do not place your BT Diverse 6210
in the bathroom or other humid
areas.
Handset range
The BT Diverse 6210 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
symbol 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.

Getting started
Battery low warning
When the batteries need
recharging, the handset beeps and
the display shows
.
2. Batteries will come inserted in the battery compartment.
Pull the plastic tag as instructed to activate the batteries.
Battery level
The battery symbol shows the
current level
3. Charge the handset batteries for at least 16 hours by
placing the handset on the base. The screen shows the
battery icon filling up.
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).
4. Connect the telephone line cord to the base and plug the
other end into the wall socket.
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
6210 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.
Telephone line cord

Check service centre number is correct including 1470P prefix.
Cannot receive text
■
Check service centre number is correct.
■
Ensure you have subscribed to a Caller Display service and that it is active. You can
check this by noting if your phone displays your caller's number when you receive an
incoming call.
Handset is registered to the SMS service and text has previously been sent and
received but you are now only receiving incoming messages.
■
This may be due to your handset being de-registered at the text service centre. All you
need to do is type Register and send it to 00000. You will receive a confirmation message
back. This assumes that your Caller Display service is active and working on your line.
