PHONE LINE
12V AC
SETTING UP
Your Freestyle 1025 uses a compact aerial which
does not pull out.
2 Check your telephone socket
Electrical storm warning
During periods of electrical storm, you are
advised to disconnect your apparatus because
damage may occur.
If you do not have a modern-style telephone
socket, call Freefone 0800 800 150 and ask for
a BT engineer to come and fit the correct socket.
If a fault occurs during the 12-month warranty
period and it is due to accidental or wilful damage
(including lightning and electrical damage),
BT will not replace or repair free of charge.
This is a chargeable service.

Plug the 3 pin adaptor into the
mains power socket and switch on
Your Freestyle 1025 begins the set-up procedure
which takes a few seconds.
– The message counter flashes.
– The pre-set outgoing message is ready to use.
– The answer delay is set to 6 rings.
– The answering machine is switched to ON.
– The loudspeaker volume is set to level 5
(from a range of 0-H).
– The machine announces the answer delay
setting: “Calls will be answered after 6 rings”.
Mains power adaptor
SETTING UP
The Freestyle 1025 must only be used with the
adaptor supplied.
Using any other adaptor will invalidate the approval
given to this apparatus.
The CHARGING light remains on until the
handset is removed from the base unit.
When fully charged and in good condition,
the handset batteries will provide up to 7 hours
continuous talk time or 72 hours standby.
If the batteries are running low, the
BATT LOW light will flash.
In Use
Battery
Low
If you are making a call and the batteries
are running low, the handset will beep every
10-15 seconds and you have about 2 minutes
before the call is cut off.
Place the handset on the base unit to recharge.
Battery Care
Charge the handset battery for at
5
least 24 hours
When you first use your Freestyle 1025, the
rechargeable batteries in the handset need
charging for 24 hours.
Place the handset on the base unit face down,
ensuring the contacts are touching.
The CHARGING light on the base unit comes ON.
After the handset has been charged for 24 hours,
your phone is ready for use.
As a rule, placing the handset on the base unit
overnight will keep the batteries fully charged
for all normal use.
6
Batteries cannot be overcharged. However, leaving
the handset on the base unit all the time can
deteriorate rechargeable batteries. To get the longest
possible life from your batteries, take the handset off
the base for a few hours each day.
6
Plug your Freestyle 1025 into the
phone socket
8
To plan the location of the
base unit
Your Freestyle 1025 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.
7
Fully extend the telescopic aerial
on the base unit
Try to avoid putting the telescopic aerial near other
electrical appliances, fluorescent lights and large
metallic objects such as cookers, radiators and garage
doors as these may cause interference and reduce the
quality of your calls.
• It should be within easy reach of a mains
socket and a telephone socket. A new-style
telephone socket is needed for this product.
If you do not have one, call us on Freefone
0800 800 150.
• Try to avoid locations near metallic obstructions
or electrical appliances, such as TV sets,
fridges, computers, fluorescent lights, radiators,
metal pipes and metal window frames.
• The Freestyle 1025 can be wall-mounted by
using the bracket and screws supplied; see
pages 38-39.
SETTING UP
For the best reception
The higher the base unit is located, the better.

ANSWERING MACHINE
If you adjust the volume when the
answering machine is not being used,
a beep sounds at the level you are
selecting. When the volume is at its
highest or lowest setting, you hear
2 beeps.
3 minutes is the maximum time allowed for each
incoming message. If the maximum message
length is reached – or if the memory becomes
full – the caller hears the message “Thank you
for calling” and your Freestyle 1025 hangs up.
When more than 9 messages are stored on the
answering machine the LED display shows 9
flashing.
When the recording memory is full, the display
alternates between the number of messages
and F.
If the answering machine is switched on, and the
memory is full, incoming callers will hear the
pre-set message “Hello, your call cannot be taken
at the moment and you cannot leave a message, so
please call later”. If the caller is still on the line
after 8 seconds, they hear the message “Thank
your for calling” and your Freestyle 1025 hangs up.

Technical information
Approval for use
Your Freestyle 1025 is tested and approved for
connection to public networks, provided it is
used in accordance with the guidelines in this
user guide.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION
You may connect it:
• To direct exchange lines.
• To extensions with new plug and socket
arrangements provided with these direct
exchange lines.
• To compatible switchboards.
You may NOT connect it:
• To shared service (party) lines.
• As an extension to a payphone.
This phone is designed for UK use only. Using it
abroad may violate local radio laws.
The base unit is intended for use when powered
from the 9V AC mains adaptor supplied, which
conforms to EN60950. Any other usage will
invalidate the approval given to this apparatus if,
as a result, it ceases to comply with EN60950.
Environment
Your Freestyle 1025 should be kept free of dust,
moisture, high temperature and vibration, and
should not be exposed to direct sunlight. Do not
stand it on carpets or other surfaces which
generate fibres, or place it in locations which
prevent the free flow of air over its surfaces.
34
WARNING
The apparatus is only designed to be operated in
a normal office or domestic environment where
the relative humidity does not exceed 60%. It should
not be used in bathrooms or near water.
How many phones 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 1025 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.
Connecting to a switchboard
Your Freestyle 1025 may be connected to
compatible switchboards. If in doubt, your
switchboard supplier or maintainer should be
able to offer help. Advice on connection to BT
switching systems can be obtained by dialling
BT on 152.
If you do not have a compatible switchboard, it
cannot be guaranteed that your Freestyle 1025
will operate correctly under all possible conditions
of connection.
Call security
Your Freestyle 1025 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 radios that use the same radio
frequencies.
In the unlikely event of your Freestyle 1025
picking up conversations from other cordless
phones being used nearby, try changing
channels using the CHANNEL button on the
handset.
Transmission frequencies
This cordless telephone has been designed to
operate on radio frequencies which have been
assigned to the exclusive use of cordless
telephones. As the use of cordless telephones
becomes more widespread, the quality of
service obtained from this apparatus may
lessen.

Maintenance
Installing a handset battery pack and recharging
Replacing the handset on the base unit to
recharge overnight should keep the Freestyle
1025 operative for normal use. In time, the
handset battery pack will no longer hold a
sufficient charge and should be replaced.
To change the handset battery pack
The handset battery compartment is located at
the back of the handset at the lower end.
• Firmly hold the handset in both hands with
the back towards you and the bottom end
away from you.
• To remove the battery compartment cover, push
the depression inward and away from you with
both thumbs.
• Undo the plastic belt securing the battery pack.
• Remove the old battery pack by unplugging
the small white plug that connects it to the
handset.
MAINTENANCE
• Insert the small white plug of the new battery
pack. (If you look at the shape of the plug and
socket, you will see that it can only be inserted
one way).
• Place the battery pack in the recess, secure it
with the plastic belt and refit the compartment
cover.
• Replace the handset on the base unit and
charge for a full 24 hours.
• The battery pack must be recycled or disposed
of properly.
• Do not burn or puncture as it could release
toxic material which may cause injury.
Spare parts for your Freestyle 1025 are available
from your BT shop or supplier.
36
Care of rechargeable battery pack
• When you first install the Freestyle 1025, or
replace the battery pack, the handset must be
fully charged for 24 hours before use.
• To maintain optimum charge and battery
condition, the handset should be allowed to
fully discharge about every 4 months.
• Dispose of Ni-Cad battery packs safely.
Do not puncture or burn them. They contain
toxic materials which could cause injury.
General cleaning
Clean the cabinet of the handset and the base
with a soft cloth slightly dampened with a mild
solution of water and detergent. Charging
contacts should be cleaned with a dry cloth,
or for heavy soiling a pencil eraser can be used.
Extended periods of non-use
It is recommended that you:
• Disconnect the base unit from both mains
supply and telephone line.
• Remove the battery pack from the handset.
• When reconnecting, check that the charging
light on the base unit is on. Recharge the
handset battery for 24 hours.
