Getting started
Location
You need to place your BT Freestyle 7110 base station
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 Freestyle 7110 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.
7
WARNING
Do not place your BT Freestyle 7110
base in the bathroom or other
humid areas.
Handset range
The BT Freestyle 7110 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
OUT OF RANGE and there is a beep.
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
.
Battery level
The battery symbol shows the
current level
2. Batteries will come inserted in the battery compartment.
Pull the plastic tag as instructed to activate the batteries.
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.
4. Connect the telephone line cord to the base and plug the
other end into the wall socket.
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 Freestyle
7110 handset gives up to 12 hours
talk time or up to 120 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
Your BT Freestyle 7110 is ready for use.

Location

Under no circumstances use nonrechargeable batteries. Only use
NiMH rechargeable batteries with
a recommended capacity of
750mAh. Using inappropriate
batteries will invalidate your
guarantee and may damage the
telephone.
