Answering machine
After following the ‘Getting started’ section, your BT Freestyle 650 answering machine
will be set to Answer on and is ready to start receiving messages. Press
to switch the
answering machine on and off.
You can select one of the pre-recorded outgoing messages – answer & record or answer
only or you can record your own personalised outgoing message. Press
to hear your
current outgoing message.
Most problems are caused by something very simple and can be fixed with a few simple checks:
• Make sure both the mains power adaptor cable and telephone line cord are plugged into
the correct sockets and plugged in at the wall.
• Make sure you use all the cables and batteries (if supplied) that came in the box, not
those from a previous product.
You can also record memo messages for other users, screen calls and you can operate
the answering machine remotely. For detailed instructions of all the answering machine
features see the online user guide at
• If you experience poor speech quality or interference, make sure the product is not
located too close to other electrical appliances. This can also help improve the handset
range from the base.
Listening to your messages/memos
When you have messages recorded on your answering machine, the Messages light on the
base will flash.
• Make sure you charge the batteries for at least 24 hours before first use to ensure
maximum battery performance. The charge capacity of the batteries will decrease
over time.
At the base, press
to hear any new messages, or press and hold
all messages. The oldest message is played first.
