Getting started
Location
WARNING
Do not place your BT Freelance
XD 1100 in the bathroom or other
humid areas.
You need to place your BT Freelance XD 1100 base
within 2 metres of a mains power socket and the
telephone wall socket so that the cables will reach.
Handset range
Your BT Freelance XD 1100 has a
range of up to 300m 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 handset and the base,
e.g. the base is indoors and the
handset is either indoors or
outdoors, the range could be
reduced to 50m. Thick stone walls
will severely affect the range.
Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other
electrical appliances to avoid interference.
Signal strength
The icon on your handset display
indicates when you are in range of
the base. When it flashes and you
hear a warning beep, you are out
of range and will need to move
closer to the base.
Your BT Freelance XD 1100 works by sending radio signals
between the handset and base. The strength of the signal
depends on where you position the base. Putting it as high
as possible can help to provide the best signal.
Connect the base to mains power
1. Plug the jack of the mains power adaptor into the socket
marked
on the back of the base and plug the other
end to the mains power wall socket. The green Power/In
Use light comes on.
Power adaptor cable
IMPORTANT
Do not connect the telephone line
until the handset is fully charged.
The base station should be
plugged into the mains power
socket at all times.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047
BT Freelance XD 1100 – Issue 02 - Edition 02 – 21.09.05 – 7060
Getting started
Preparing your handset
2. Insert the 2 x AAA rechargeable batteries supplied,
taking note of the polarity markings inside the battery
compartment, then slide the battery compartment shut.
WARNING
Never use non-rechargeable
batteries. Only use the approved
batteries. Using unapproved
batteries will invalidate your
guarantee and may damage the
telephone.
Talk/Standby time
Under ideal conditions, the
handset batteries should give
about 10 hours talk time or 200
hours standby on a single charge.
(This does not mean you can
unplug the base or leave it for this
length of time without charge.)
3. Place the handset on the base to charge. The red charging
light comes on. You should let the batteries charge
continuously for at least 24 hours. The batteries and case
may become warm during charging, this is normal.
BT Freelance XD 1100 multipack users only:
Place each BT Freelance XD 1100 charger within reach
of a mains power wall socket.
Connect the charger(s) and charge the handset(s)
i. Plug the mains power adaptor into the power socket on
the underside of the charger and plug the other end to
the mains power wall socket.
Please note that new NiMH
rechargeable batteries do not reach

See ‘Battery performance’ on the
following page.
Battery low warning
icon is flashing in the
If the
display and you hear a warning

Getting started
Battery performance
To keep the batteries in the best
condition, leave the handset off
the base for a few hours at a time.
Running the batteries right down
at least once a week will help them
last as long as possible.
After charging your handset for the
first time, subsequent charging time
for the batteries is approximately
6 – 8 hours.
The charge capacity of
rechargeable batteries will reduce
with time as they wear out, thus
reducing the talk/standby time.
Eventually they will need replacing.
New batteries are available from
the BT Freelance XD 1100 Helpline
on 0870 605 8047.
ii. Insert the 2 x AAA rechargeable batteries supplied,
taking note of the polarity markings inside the battery
compartment, then slide the battery compartment shut.
The display will show the handset number, – 2 – , to
show it is registered to the base.
iii. Place the handset on the charger. The red charging
light comes on. You should let the batteries charge
continuously for at least 24 hours.
Connect to the telephone line
4. Plug the telephone line cord into the socket marked
on the back of the base and plug the other end into the
telephone wall socket.
