1. Getting Started
Please read the safety instructions in the "Precautions"
section before use.
Before you start using your phone, you must insert a
valid SIM card supplied by your GSM operator or
retailer. The SIM card contains your subscription
information, your mobile telephone number, and a
small quantity of memory in which you can store
phone numbers and messages (for more information,
see “Contacts” on page 62).
You can also insert a memory card. This provides you
with expanded memory capability, which allows you
to store additional music, photo, and video files
separate from the phone's built-in memory.
Remove the battery
Put your finger on the black holder located at the top
right hand corner of the battery and lift the battery up
from its slot.
Inserting the SIM card
Remove the back cover
Make sure that the phone is switched off. You need to
remove the back cover of your phone before you can
insert the SIM card. Hold the phone with the front
facing downwards as shown in the diagram and push
the release catch located on the left side of the phone.
Place your finger in the small hole above the release
catch and lift up the back cover from its slot.
8
Getting Started
You may lose all your personal settings if you remove
the battery when the phone is switched on.
Insert the SIM card
Make sure that the clipped corner of the SIM card is
facing the correct direction (clipped corner at upper
left) and the metallic contacts are facing downwards.
Slide the SIM card into the card slot until it stops.
When you remove your SIM card the first time, make
sure that you smoothen the edges, otherwise you may
have difficulty sliding in the card.
Replace the back cover
Align and hook the back cover to the right side of the
phone and press down the back cover until it locks
into place with the left side of the phone.
Replace the battery
With the metallic contacts facing downwards, press
the battery down into its slot until it locks into place.
Note that the hinge should be at the bottom of the
battery.
Getting Started
9
When inserting the battery, be careful not to damage
the metallic connectors of the SIM card slot.
Switching on the phone
Once the battery and battery cover are installed, you
can charge the phone. Plug in the connector as shown
below. Then plug the other end into an AC power
socket.
To switch on the phone, long press and release the )
key. Enter the PIN code if required (the 4 to 8 digit secret
code of your SIM card). It is preconfigured and provided
to you by your network operator or retailer. For more
information on PIN code, see “Security” on page 76.
If you enter an incorrect PIN code 3 times in succession,
your SIM card will be blocked. To unblock it, you must
obtain the PUK code from your network operator.
Charging the battery
Your phone is powered by a rechargeable battery. The
new battery is partially charged. A sound alert will be
emitted to warn you when the battery level becomes low.
We recommend that you do not remove the battery
when the phone is switched on as you may lose all your
personal settings as a result. If you do remove it, the
date and time settings are only memorized for a short
while. As such, you need to reset the information after
you have installed the battery back again.
10
The battery symbol indicates the state of charge.
During charging, the charge indicators will scroll; it
takes around 2.5 hours to fully charge the battery.
When all the scroll bars are steady, the battery is fully
charged. You can then disconnect the charger.
Depending on the network and condition of use, talk
time and stand-by time can go up to 4 hours* and 300
hours* respectively.
*Depending on the network conditions, user settings,
method of use, etc the actual results may differ.
Getting Started
Keeping the charger plugged to the mobile phone when
the battery is fully charged will not damage the
battery. The only way to turn off the charger is to
unplug it, so it is advisable to use an easily accessible
AC power socket.
If you do not intend to use your phone for several days,
we recommend that you remove the battery.
You can use the phone while it is charging (note that
the vibra alert goes off when the charger is connected).
If the battery is completely flat, the battery icon will
only reappear after a few minutes of charging.

The principle of stroke input is to dissect and separate
every stroke of a chinese character according to
sequence. When you wish to input the character, press
the keys corresponding to the required strokes
according to sequence to get the desired character.
23
The stroke input method in this phone classifies a
chinese character into 5 basic strokes: (horizontal,
vertical, left falling stroke, right falling stroke and
over-down) as well as a special stroke. When the
stroke you need does not correspond to the 5 basic
strokes, replace it with the special stroke.
The examples below will give you a clearer
understanding of how to use stroke input method:

press R Back to exit from the association character
list and press , to confirm completion of text editing.

BMI-Body Mass Index
BMI is the recommended method for measurement of
overweight in adults. The borderline for overweight
and obesity is determined by BMI, which is closely
linked to body fat. You can measure your weight
index using the BMI function.
BMI is calculated by using the weight divided by the
height in squares. In the calculation, weight is in
55
kilogrammes, while height is in metres. The formula
is as follows:
BMI= [weight (kg)]/ [(Height) metres x (Height)
metres]
1. Enter the menu.
2. The cursor will be in the weight input box. Use the
keypad to enter your weight. Press + / - to switch
the cursor between weight and height input boxes.

Morbid Obesity
4. After you have done the calculation, press L Reset
to clear the input boxes and the calculation results,
so that you can perform another calculation.
The unit of measurement for weight is kilograms (kg)
or pounds, and the measurement for height is
centimetres (cm). However, in the calculation of BMI,
your height in centimetres will be converted to metres.
Basal Metabolic Rate is the minimal calorie
requirement required to sustain life in a resting or
sleeping individual that is not subject to the influence
of stress, hunger, muscular activities, ambient
temperature and health conditions. Basal Metabolic
rate reflects an individual's metabolic condition and
has been considered as a reference for weight control
and the maintenance of health.
The formula for calculating BMR provided by your
mobile phone is the Harris-Benedict formula, which
is as follows:
Female: BMR = 655 + (9.6 x weight in kg) + (1.8 x
height in cm) - (4.7 x age)
Male: BMR = 66 + (13.7 x weight in kg) + (5 x height
in cm) - (6.8 x age)
In the above method of calculation, the unit for
weight is in kilogrammes and the unit for height is in
centimetres.
Weight ranges between 10 to 200 kg. Height ranges
between 10 to 300 cm.
3. After you have entered the height and weight,
press L Count or , to start calculation. The
results will be displayed at the bottom of the
screen. Besides displaying your BMI, the
interpretation of your BMI results will also be
displayed in the following manner:

Precautions
Radio Waves
Your cellular mobile phone is a low power
radio transmitter and receiver. When it is
operating, it sends and receives radio waves.
The radio waves carry your voice or data
signal to a base station that is connected to the
telephone network. The network controls the power
at which the phone transmits.
• Your phone transmits/receives radio waves in the
GSM frequency (900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz).
• The GSM network controls transmission power
(0.01 to 2 watts).
• Your phone complies with all relevant safety
standards.
• The CE mark on your phone shows compliancy
with European electromagnetic compatibility (Ref.
89/336/EEC) and low voltage directives (Ref. 73/
23/EEC).
Your cellular mobile phone is your responsibility. To
avoid damage to yourself, to others or to the phone
itself, read and follow all the safety instructions and
make them known to anyone borrowing your
phone.Furthermore to prevent unauthorized use of
your phone:
82
Keep your phone in a safe place and keep it
out of small children's reach.
Avoid writing down your PIN code. Try to
remember it instead.
Switch off the phone and remove the battery if you are
going to leave it unused for a long time.
Change your PIN code after purchasing the phone
and to activate call restriction options.
The design of your phone complies with all
applicable laws and regulations. However
your phone may cause interference with
other electronic devices. Consequently you
should follow all local recommendations and
regulations when using your cellular phone both at
home and when away. Regulations on the use of
cellular phones in vehicles and aircraft are
particularly stringent.
Public concern has been focused for some time on the
possible health risks for users of cellular phones. The
current research on radio wave technology, including
the GSM technology, has been reviewed and safety
standards have been drawn up to ensure protection from
exposure to radio wave energy. Your cellular telephone
complies with all applicable safety standards and the
Radio Equipment and Telecommunications Terminal
Equipment Directive 1999/5/EC.
Precautions
Always switch off your phone
Inadequately protected or sensitive electronic
equipment may be affected by radio energy. This
interference can lead to accidents.
Before boarding an aircraft and/or when
packing the phone in your luggage: the use
of mobile phones in an aircraft may be
dangerous for the operation of the aircraft, disrupt the
mobile phones network and may be illegal.
In hospitals, clinics, other health care
centres and anywhere else where you may be
in the close vicinity of medical equipment.
In areas with a potentially explosive
atmosphere (e.g. petrol stations and also
areas where the air contains dust particles,
such as metal powders).
In a vehicle transporting flammable products (even if
the vehicle is parked) or a vehicle powered by liquefied
petroleum gas (LPG), check first that the vehicle
complies with the applicable safety rules.
In areas where you are requested to turn off radio
transmitting devices, such as quarries or other areas
where blasting operations are in progress.
Precautions
Check with the vehicle manufacturer that
electronic equipment used in your vehicle
will not be affected by radio energy.
Pacemakers
If you have a pacemaker:
• Always keep the phone more than 15 cm from your
pacemaker when the phone is switched on, in order
to avoid potential interference.
• Do not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite to the pacemaker to minimize
the potential interference.
• Switch off your phone if you suspect that
interference is taking place.
Users of hearing aids
If you are a user of a hearing aid, consult your
physician and hearing aid manufacturer to learn
whether your particular device is susceptible to
cellular phone interference.
Improved performance
In order to improve the performance of your phone,
reduce radio energy emission, reduce battery
consumption and ensure safe operation adhere to the
following guidelines:
83
•
•
•
•
•
For the optimal and satisfactory operation of
the phone, you are recommended to use the
phone in the normal operating position
(when not using in hands-free mode or with
a hands-free accessory).
Do not expose your phone to extreme temperatures.
Treat the phone with care. Any misuse will void the
International Guarantee.
Do not immerse the phone in any liquid; if your
phone is damp, switch it off, remove the battery.
and let them dry for 24hrs before using them again.
To clean the phone, wipe it with a soft cloth.
Placing and receiving calls consumes the same
amount of battery energy. However, the mobile
consumes less energy in idle screen when kept in
the same place. When in idle screen and while you
are moving, your phone consumes energy to
transmit updated location information to the
network. Setting the backlight for a shorter period
of time as well as avoiding unnecessary navigating
in the menus will also help to save the battery's
energy for longer phoning and stand-by
performances.

hands-free car kit which is designed for that purpose.
• Ensure that your phone and car kit do not block any
air bags or other security devices fitted in your car.
The use of an alarm system to operate a vehicle's lights
or horn to indicate incoming phone calls is prohibited
on public roads in some countries. Check local
regulations.

Specific Absorption Rate Information
International standards
THIS MOBILE PHONE MEETS THE INTERNATIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EXPOSURE TO
RADIO WAVES
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the limits for
exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy defined by the international standards. These recommendations have been
established by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and, the Institute
of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) that forecast a substantial safety margin for assuring the protection
of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure recommendations for mobile phones use a measurement unit known as the Specific Absorption Rate
(SAR). The SAR limit recommended by the ICNIRP for the mobile phones used by the general public is 2.0W/
kg averaged over ten grams of tissue and, is 1,6W/kg averaged over one gram of tissue by IEEE Std 1528 for the
head.
Tests for SAR have been conducted using recommended operating positions with the mobile phone transmitting
at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest
certified power level, the actual SAR levels of the mobile phone while operating are generally below the maximum
SAR value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power
required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a base station antenna, the lower the power output.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet
the international protection standards for exposure to radio waves.
The highest SAR value for this Philips P598 model phone when tested for compliance against the standard was
0,331W/kg for ICNIRP recommendation and 0,508W/kg for IEEE Std 1528.
For limiting the radio waves exposure, it is recommended to reduce the mobile phone call duration or to use a
headset. The purpose of those precautions is to take the mobile phone away from the head and the body.
90
Specific Absorption Rate Information
USA
Your mobile is also designed and manufactured not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF)
energy defined by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC - USA). The SAR limit recommended by the
FCC for mobile phone used by the general public is 1,6W/kg averaged over one gram of tissue for the head.
The highest FCC SAR value for this Philips P598 model phone when tested for compliance against FCC
requirements was 0.215 W/kg.
