Getting started
Location
Place your BT Freestyle 750 within 2 metres of 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
appliances to avoid interference.
Your BT Freestyle 750 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.
7
WARNING
Do not place your BT Freestyle 750 in
the bathroom or other humid areas.
Handset range
The BT Freestyle 750 has a range of
300 metres outdoors when there is a
clear line of sight between the base
and handset. Any obstruction between
the base and handset will reduce the
range significantly. With the base
indoors and handset either indoors or
outdoors, the range will normally be
up to 50 metres. Thick stone walls can
severely affect the range.
Setting up
1. Plug the mains power cable into the socket marked on the
underside of the base and plug the other end into the mains
power wall socket and switch the power on. You can place the
cable behind the retaining clip to prevent the plug being
accidentally pulled from the socket.
IMPORTANT
The base station must be plugged into
the mains power socket at all times.
Do not connect the telephone line
until the handset is fully charged.
Only use the power and telephone
cables supplied with the product.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on Freephone 0800 218 2182* or email bt.helpdesk@vtecheurope.com

Getting started
Battery low warning
If the
icon flashes in the
handset display you will need to
recharge the handset before you
can use it again. You also hear a low
battery warning beep once every
60 seconds.
During charging, the
icon will
scroll in the display.
Battery performance
In ideal conditions, a fully charged
batteries should give up to 10 hours
talk time or 100 hours standby time on
a single charge.
Note that new batteries do not reach
full capacity until they have been in
normal use for several days.
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 it last as
long as possible.
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. New batteries are
available from the BT Freestyle 750
Helpline on 0800 218 2182*.
After charging your handset for the
first time, subsequent charging time is
about 6–8 hours a day. Batteries and
handset may become warm during
charging. This is normal.
The base indicator lights up. The answering machine is
switched on.
2. Batteries will come inserted in the battery compartment.
Pull the plastic tag as instructed to activate the batteries.
3. Place the handset on the base to charge for at least 20 hours.
When the handset is fully charged the
icon will
be displayed.
4. When the batteries are fully charged, plug one end of the
telephone line cord into the socket marked on the rear of
the base and the other end into the telephone wall socket.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on Freephone 0800 218 2182* or email bt.helpdesk@vtecheurope.com
Getting started
Setting up for multiple packs
If you have purchased a BT Freestyle 750 multiple pack,
you will need to prepare any additional handsets and chargers
for use.
For each additional handset and charger:
1. Insert the cable through the channel at the rear of the charger
and insert the plug into the power socket. Plug the other end
into the mains wall power socket and switch on.
Using your BT Freestyle 750 on a
Broadband line?
If this product is to be used on a
broadband line then you must ensure
that it is connected via an ADSL
microfilter. Using this product on a
Broadband line without an ADSL
microfilter may cause problems with
this product and your Broadband
service.
Additional BT ADSL microfilters can be
purchased from www.shop.bt.com
2. Batteries will come inserted in the battery compartment.
Pull the plastic tag as instructed to activate the batteries.
Charge the battery for at least 20 hours.
Any additional handsets supplied as part of a multipack are
pre-registered to the base so, once charged, are ready for use.
The handset number is shown in the display.
