Setting up
Setting up Follow these steps and your Freestyle 320 Plus
will be ready for use.
Important: Before you use your Freestyle 320 Plus
As this product is rechargeable, it is normal that a
certain amount of heat will be produced in its dayto-day operation. Whilst this is entirely safe we
would advise against placing this product on
antique, veneered or wooden surfaces as damage
may occur.
Plan the location of the base unit. The following
points should be considered:
Check that your Freestyle 320 Plus is complete.
When you unpack you must have:
• base unit with telescopic aerial and
•
•
•
•
•
telephone line cord attached;
handset;
13 amp mains power adaptor plug;
stand/wall-mounting bracket;
two screws and wall plugs for wall-mounting;
spare directory label.
• The base unit should be within two metres of a
power socket and the phone socket. A new-style
phone line socket is needed for this product.
If you do not have one, call us free on FREEfone
0800 800 150.
• There should be enough room for the telescopic
aerial to be fully extended, ideally vertically.
• Ensure that the base unit and the aerial are away
from TV sets, fridges, computers, GSM telephones,
fluorescent lights, radiators, metal pipes and
metal window frames.
• If your Freestyle 320 Plus is your only phone, you
must fit back-up batteries in case of power cuts.
The required battery type is a PP3 Alkaline 9V
(not supplied).
• The back up battery must be fitted before
attaching the base unit to the mounting bracket.
5
Setting up
Like all cordless phones, the Freestyle 320 Plus
handset must be charged for 24 hours before
first use.
3 Insert battery (for back up only)
1 Handset aerial
BATTERY
Pull
Open the panel underneath the base unit.
Fit a PP3 Alkaline 9 volt battery (not supplied)
and replace the panel. The battery will only
be connected and functioning when the cover
is closed.
Your Freestyle 320 Plus uses an extendible aerial.
When using the handset pull out the aerial to
ensure the best possible signal and reception.
2 Check your telephone wall
socket
If you do not have a modern socket, call BT on
Freephone 0800 800 150 and ask for an
engineer to come and fit the right socket within
two metres of a mains socket. This is a
chargeable service.
6
The battery provides back-up power to ensure that
your Freestyle 320 Plus will work in the event of a
mains power failure. We strongly advise you to fit a
battery if a cordless phone is the only phone in your
home.

Cautions
1. Do not use any power adaptor except the
one supplied, as this may cause irreparable
damage to your Freestyle 320 Plus.
2. Your Freestyle 320 Plus is mains powered
and should not be installed in wet or damp
conditions, for example in a bathroom.
Also, the handset should not be left out in
the rain.
3. There is a slight chance that your phone
could be damaged by an electrical storm.
We recommend that you unplug the unit
from the mains during such storms.
If you prefer to mount your Freestyle 320 Plus
on the wall, see page 9.

320 Plus (optional)
Your Freestyle 320 Plus can be wall mounted
by using the stand/bracket provided.
You can now use the phone, store numbers in
the memory and change some of the settings
as desired.
Using the inductive coupler
Your Freestyle 320 Plus is fitted with an
inductive coupler in its handset to
improve sound quality for people using
hearing aids. Switch your hearing aid to T and
adjust the position of the handset until you obtain
the best sound.
Use the stand/bracket as a template to mark
where you will put the screws into the wall.
Before you wall-mount your Freestyle 320 Plus,
check:
• That the wall can support the weight of the
base unit and handset.
• That the position you choose leaves enough
space around the mounting bracket so that the
base unit (which is larger than the bracket) is
clear of anything on the wall, such as a shelf
or cupboard.
• That the position you choose leaves enough
space for the base unit telescopic aerial to be
fully extended.

Help
Help If you have any problems using your Freestyle 320 Plus,
this section will give you the most common, easy to follow solutions.
Emergency calls
The emergency services can be contacted using this
telephone by dialling 999 or 112.
Your Freestyle 320 Plus is a radio system and is
mains powered, so there are certain situations
where you may find you cannot make an
emergency call from the handset.
No dialling tone
The handset may need recharging. Place it on
the base or, if necessary, replace the batteries.
(Available from your BT stockist.)
Make sure your Freestyle 320 Plus telephone
line cord is plugged into the phone socket.
You may be out of range of the base unit. Try
again nearer the base.
These situations are as follows:
• If there is interference from other sources
such as cordless phones, radio station
transmitters, CB radios and so on.
• If the handset batteries fail.
• If there is a power cut and the base unit has
no back-up battery fitted.
Low battery indicator on the handset
When the handset battery runs low, the display
shows BATT and the handset beeps. After a further
30 seconds, any phone or intercom call currently
being made will be cut off.
To recharge, leave the handset charging on the base
for at least 24 hours.
28
Is the base unit aerial fully extended? This will
ensure you get the best possible range.
You dial and nothing happens
Before dialling ensure you can hear the dial
tone. You may be out of range of the base unit.
Try again nearer the base.
The phone does not ring
Have you turned the ringer off?
See ‘Set the ringer volume on page 19.
Are there too many phones, answering
machines and/or fax machines plugged in,
which could be overloading the sockets?
See ‘Ringer equivalence number’, page 32.
Help
Noise or interference on the handset
You may be at the extreme range of the
handset. Try moving nearer the base.
The base or handset may be too close to other
electrical equipment and metal objects.
(Occasionally, overhead power lines can cause
interference when you use the handset
outdoors. Try again nearer the base).
If your Freestyle picks up conversations from
other cordless phones, you can change the
channel during a call. See page 21.
Handset seems to be ‘dead’
Check that the mains power is switched on at
the base. Make sure the handset batteries are
fully charged.
Check that the base unit telescopic aerial is
fully extended and is away from other electrical
appliances or large metal objects such as a
radiator, shelf unit or garage door.
Try resetting the phone by unplugging it from
the mains and removing the handset and base
back-up batteries for a few seconds.
Now reconnect the batteries, plug in the base,
replace the handset on the base and try again.
Installing handset batteries and recharging
When fully charged and in good condition, the
handset batteries will last for up to 5 hours
continuous use in talk mode or 48 hours in
standby mode. If the batteries are running
low, the handset will display a flashing BATT
warning message. If you are on a call, the
handset will give a series of beeps and the BATT
warning message will remain on the display.
You will have about 30 seconds before the call
is cut off.
Normally, replacing the handset on the base
unit to recharge overnight will keep it fully
operative for normal everyday use.
If, in time, you find that the batteries are not
holding sufficient charge, they should be
replaced. New batteries are available from BT
phone shops or your supplier.
To change the handset batteries
BATTERY
• Slide open the battery cover on the back of
the handset and remove the old battery.
• Place the new battery in the compartment;
remember to plug in the battery connector
• Replace the battery cover and place the
handset on the base unit.
• Leave the handset to re-charge for 24 hours.

Check that the charging contacts on the base
unit and the handset are kept clean. If they
become tarnished or dirty, your Freestyle 320
Plus may not recharge efficiently. Clean the
contacts by wiping them with a dry cloth.
Battery saving tips
To extend the life of your handset batteries, it is a
good idea to take the handset off the base for
around two hours every day or let the handset run
down completely once every six months.
Extended periods of non-use
If you are not going to use your Freestyle 320
Plus for a long period of time (for example if you
are going on holiday), we recommend that you:
• disconnect the base unit from both mains
supply and phone line;
• disconnect and remove the back-up battery
from the base unit;
• recharge the handset batteries for 24 hours
when reconnecting.
Cleaning
Simply clean the handset and base unit with
a damp cloth or an antistatic wipe. Avoid using

Official approval
Freestyle 320 Plus is tested and approved for connection to the
BT network, provided it is used in accordance with the
guidelines in this user guide.

Approval for use
This apparatus has been approved for use with the following
facilities:
Call Security
Your Freestyle 320 Plus 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 to
communicate between the base and cordless handsets. It is
therefore possible that your conversation could be overheard by
other people on their cordless phones, or on ordinary radios that
use the same radio frequencies.
As the 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.
Simple telephone.
Cordless telephone.
Time break recall/earth loop recall.
Automatic storage of last number dialled.
Loop disconnect and MF signalling.
Microphone secrecy.
PABX providing secondary proceed indication.
Memory redial of up to ten numbers.
Mixed mode dialling.
Operation in absence of proceed indication.
Network Services.
Any other usage will invalidate the approval of the apparatus if, as
a result, it then ceases to conform to the standards against which
approval was granted.
The base unit is intended for use when powered from the mains
adaptor supplied, which has a rating of 8V at 400 mA and which
conforms to BS415. Any other usage will invalidate the approval
given to this apparatus if, as a result, it ceases to comply
with BS415.

Handset batteries
When fully charged and in good condition, the handset
batteries will last for up to 5 hours in Talk mode or 48 hours
in Standby mode.
Ringer Equivalence Number (REN)
Although you may have any number of sockets, it is important
to limit the number of telephones and other items of apparatus
connected to the line by those sockets, to ensure that each
telephone will ring.
Every telephone or item of apparatus has a Ringer Equivalence
Number (REN). In most cases a standard line should provide
enough current for two or more telephones or items of apparatus
if the RENs add up to no more than 4.
Freestyle 320 Plus has a REN of 1. Any telephone provided by
BT may be assumed to have a REN of 1 unless otherwise stated
on the base. Even where the number of telephones has been
limited, there is no guarantee that the different types of
telephone on the same line will ring.
