Safety information
General
Cleaning
Only use the power supply unit
included with the product. Using an
unauthorised power supply will
invalidate your guarantee and may
damage the telephone. The item
number for the power supply unit
is 872264.
Simply clean the handset and base
station with a damp (not wet) cloth,
or an antistatic wipe. Never use
household polish as this will damage
the product. Never use a dry cloth
as this may cause a static shock.
For the handset use only approved
rechargeable battery pack. Under
no circumstances should nonrechargeable batteries be used.
Using unapproved batteries will
invalidate your guarantee and may
damage the telephone.
Radio signals transmitted between
the handset and base may cause
interference to some hearing aids.
Do not dismantle the handset or
base station. This could expose you
to high voltages or other risks.
Contact the Helpline for repairs.
Never dispose of batteries in a fire.
There is a serious risk of explosion
and/or the release of highly toxic
chemicals.
Environmental
Do not expose to direct sunlight.
The product may heat up when
the batteries are being recharged.
This is normal. However, to avoid
damage we recommend that you
do not place the product on
antique/veneered wood.
Do not expose your product to
fire, explosive or other hazardous
conditions.
There is a slight chance that your
phone could be damaged by an
electrical storm. We recommend
that you unplug the power and
telephone line cord for the
duration of the storm.
6
Freestyle 65 User Guide ~ 5th Edition ~ 5th April ’02 ~ 3950
Setting up
Follow these steps to set up your Freestyle 65 ready for use.
Plan the location
Situate your Freestyle 65 close enough
to the mains power socket and telephone
socket so that the cables will reach.
Make sure it is at least 1 metre away
from other electrical products to avoid
interference.
1 Handset aerial
Your Freestyle 65 handset uses a
compact aerial which we recommend
you pull out when on a call to obtain
the best signal and reception available.
Do not situate the product in the
bathroom or other humid areas.
Your Freestyle 65 works by sending and
receiving radio signals between the base
unit and the handset.
The strength of the signal depends on
where you site the base unit and how
the aerial is deployed.
The higher the base unit is located,
the better. An upstairs room is ideal.
Your product can be wall mounted, for
more information see page 44.
7
2 Plug the power supply
cord into the back of the
base unit
Freestyle 65 User Guide ~ 5th Edition ~ 5th April ’02 ~ 3950
3 Connect the base unit
power supply to a power
socket
Note
When fully charged and in good
condition, the handset will provide up
to 7 hours talktime or 72 hours
standby.
If the handset battery is running low,
the light on the handset will flash
every 10-15 seconds.
The power supply unit must remain
plugged in all the time.
Note
Do not connect the telephone line cord
to the phone socket until the handset
is fully charged. This will prevent the
risk of the phone being answered
before the batteries are charged, which
may prevent them from reaching
maximum capacity.
4 Charge the handset
If you are making a call and the
handset battery is running low you
will hear a warning tone every
10-15 seconds.
Place the handset on the base unit to
recharge.
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 Helpline. Please see page 39 for
instructions on how to install a new
battery pack.
To get the longest possible life from
your battery, leave the handset off the
base unit for a few hours each day.
When you first use your Freestyle 65,
the rechargeable battery in the
handset needs charging for 24 hours.
Place the handset on the base unit,
ensuring the contacts are touching.
The red CHARGING light will come on.
The charging light will remain
constantly lit while the handset is
placed on the base unit, even when the
handset batteries are fully charged.

Technical information
How many telephones can you have?
All items of telephone equipment have
a Ringer Equivalence Number (REN),
which is used to calculate the number
of items which may be connected to
any one telephone line. Your Freestyle
65 has a REN of 1. A total REN of 4 is
allowed. If the total REN of 4 is
exceeded, the telephones may not ring.
With different telephone types there is
no guarantee of ringing, even when the
REN is less than 4.
Batteries
Although the battery pack is
rechargeable it will eventually need
to be replaced, see below for details on
how to replace the battery pack.
To replace the battery pack
Remove the battery cover by
pressing down on top of the lid
and slide the cover off.
Only use approved power supply, item
code: 872264.
Only use approved batteries, item code
872276.
These products are available from the
Freestyle 65 Helpline 08706 058 047.
Unplug the connector and
remove the old battery pack.
Plug the new battery pack
connector in and lower the
battery pack into recess then
replace lid.
39
Freestyle 65 User Guide ~ 5th Edition ~ 5th April ’02 ~ 3950
Note
When fully charged and in good
condition, the handset will provide up
to 7 hours talktime or 72 hours
standby.
If the handset battery is running low,
the light on the handset will flash
every 10-15 seconds.
If you are making a call and the
handset battery is running low you
will hear a warning tone every
10-15 seconds.
Place the handset on the base unit to
recharge.
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 Helpline.
To get the longest possible life from
your battery, leave the handset off the
base unit for a few hours each day.
Call security
Your Freestyle 65 has its own digital
security code that prevents other
cordless phone owners from using your
phone line. This ensures that you are
charged only for calls using your phone.
However, all approved cordless phones
use radio signals to communicate
between the base unit and cordless
handset units. It is therefore possible that
your conversations could be overheard
by other people, on their cordless
phones, or on ordinary radios that use
the same radio frequencies.
As this problem applies equally to all
similar cordless phones currently
available in the UK, call privacy cannot
be guaranteed. However, the security
coding prevents unauthorised use of
your line.
Switchboard compatibility
This product is intended for use within
the UK for connection to the public
telephone network and compatible
switchboards, which support tone and
pulse dialling and timed break recall.
If in doubt please consult your service
provider.

Wall mounting
Your Freestyle 65 can be wall-mounted
by removing the desk bracket.
For the best operating conditions,
try to place the base unit away from
large metal objects and other
electrical appliances.
To remove, just squeeze the bracket in
with thumbs and lift off as shown.
1
Drill 2 holes for the screws and insert
the wall-plugs provided (if required).
WALL PLUG
Please refer to page 48, wall-mounting
template.
WALL
70 mm
Note
Before you wall-mount your
Freestyle 65, check that:
• the wall can support the weight of
the base unit and handset;
2
Drive the screws into the wall, leaving
about 4mm free on which to mount
the bracket and base unit.
3
Make sure that the power supply and
the telephone cables are connected
to the base unit, then fit the cables
into the channels on the bottom of the
base unit.
4
Attach the base unit by hooking it over
the screws protruding from the wall.
• you are not drilling into any hidden
wiring or pipework;
• the power supply cable will reach
from the mains power socket to your
wall mounting position;
• the position you choose leaves enough
space so that the base unit is clear
of any obstruction on the wall, such
as a shelf or cupboard. Room should
be left so that the handset can be
placed on charge without touching
any obstructions.
