Safety & Precaution
Precaution
Keep your phone away from small children
Keep your phone and all accessories out of the reach of small
children. Small parts may cause choking or serious injury if
swallowed.
Radio Waves
Your phone transmits/receives radio waves in the GSM frequency
(900/1800/1900MHz).
Check with the vehicle manufacturer that electronic equipment
used in your vehicle will not be affected by radio energy.
Switch off your phone...
Turn off the phone when in an aircraft. 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 centers 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 or a vehicle
powered by liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).In quarries or other areas
where blasting operations are in progress.
Your mobile phone and your car
Avoid using your phone while driving and obey all regulations that
restrict the use of mobile phones while driving. Use hands free
accessories to increase your safety when possible. Ensure that your

fitted in your car.
Handle your phone carefully and sensibly
For the optimal and satisfactory operation of the phone you are
recommended to use the phone in the normal operating position.
• Do not expose your phone to extreme temperatures.
• 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.
• In hot weather or after prolonged exposure to the sun (e.g., behind a
window or a windscreen), the temperature of your phone's casing
might increase. Be very careful in this case when picking up your
phone and also avoid using it with an ambient temperature over 40°
C.
Protect batteries from damage
You should only use Philips Authentic Accessories, as the use of
any other accessories may damage your phone and may be
dangerous, and will make all guarantees for your Philips phone null and
void. The use of an unspecified type of battery may also cause an
explosion.
Make sure damaged parts are replaced immediately by a qualified
technician and that they are replaced with genuine Philips replacement
parts.
• Your phone is powered by a rechargeable battery.
• Use specified charger only.
• Do not incinerate.
• Do not deform or open the battery.
• Do not allow metal objects (such as keys in your pocket) to short
circuit the battery contacts.
• Avoid exposure to excessive heat (>60° C or 140° F), moisture or
caustic environments.

Troubleshooting
The phone does not switch on
Remove/reinstall the battery. Then charge the phone until the battery
icon stops scrolling. Unplug the charger and try to switch the mobile on.
The display shows BLOCKED when you switch on the phone
Somebody tried to use your phone but didn’t know the PIN code nor
the unblocking code (PUK). Contact your service provider.
The display shows IMSI failure
This problem is related to your subscription. Contact your operator.
Your phone doesn’t return to idle screen
Long press the hang-up key or switch off the phone, check that the SIM
card and the battery are installed correctly and switch it on again.
The network symbol is not displayed
The network connection is lost. Either you are in a radio shadow (in a
tunnel or between tall buildings) or you are outside the network
coverage area. Try from another place, try to reconnect to the network
(especially when abroad), check that the antenna is in place if your mobile
has an external antenna, or contact your network operator for
assistance/information.
The display doesn’t respond (or the display responds slowly) to
key presses
The display responds more slowly at very low temperatures. This is
normal and does not affect the operation of the phone. Take the phone
to a warmer place and try again. In other cases please contact your
phone supplier.
Your battery seems to over heat
You might be using a charger that was not intended for use with your
phone. Make sure you always use the Philips authentic accessory shipped
with your phone.
Your phone doesn’t display the phone numbers of incoming
calls
This feature is network and subscription dependent. If the network
doesn’t send the caller’s number, the phone will display Call 1 or
Withheld instead. Contact your operator for detailed information on
this subject.
You can’t send text messages
Some networks don’t allow message exchanges with other networks.
First check that you have entered the number of your SMS centre, or
contact your operator for detailed information on this subject.
You can’t receive and/or store JPEG pictures
A picture may not be accepted by your mobile phone if it is too large, if
its name is too long, or if it doesn’t have the correct file format.
You feel that you have missed some calls
Check your call divert options.
When charging, the battery icon shows no bar and the outline
is flashing
Only charge the battery in an environment where the temperature does
not go below 0°C (32°F) or above 50°C (113°F).
In other cases please contact your phone supplier.
The display shows INSERT YOUR SIM CARD
Check that the SIM card has been inserted correctly. If the problem
persists, your SIM card may be damaged. Contact your operator.
The autonomy of your phone seems lower than indicated on
the user guide
The autonomy is linked to your settings (e.g., ringer volume, backlight
duration) and the features you use. To increase the autonomy, and
whenever possible, you must deactivate features you do not use.
Your phone doesn’t work well in your car
A car contains many metallic parts that absorb electromagnetic waves
which can affect the phone’s performance. A car kit is available to
provide you with an external antenna and enables you to make and
receive phone calls without handling the handset.
Note:
• Check with the local authorities whether or not you are allowed to
use the phone while driving.
Your phone is not charging
If the battery is completely flat, it might take several minutes of precharge (up to 5 minutes in some cases) before the charging icon is
displayed on the screen.
The picture captured with the phone camera is not clear
Make sure that the camera lens on both sides is clean.
The display shows SIM failure
Check that the SIM card has been inserted correctly. If the problem
persists, your SIM card may be damaged. Contact your operator.
When attempting to use a feature in the menu, the display
shows NOT ALLOWED
Some features are network dependent. They are only available,
therefore, if the network or your subscription supports them. Contact
your operator for detailed information on this subject.

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 Xenium X525 model
phone when tested for compliance against the standard was
0.511 W/kg for ICNIRP recommendation.
For limiting the radio waves exposure, it is recommended to reduce the

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

Optimizing your Philips Xenium
battery performance
Here are some steps to help you optimize your Philips
Xenium’s battery performance.
How to optimize the standby and talk time
of your phone?
for the shortest duration. In general, the lower
the backlight level and the shorter the duration,
the more power you will save.
• Avoid using or placing your phone near
magnetic objects (eg. a radio or television) or on
metal surfaces, which will impact the network
connection and ultimately drain power from
your battery.
• Always ensure that your phone profile is

appropriately set to meet your actual usage.
Profile setting significantly impacts the phone’s
battery performance. In general, Outdoor Mode
is the most power-draining setting while Silent
Mode consumes the least amount of power.
• If you’re using a Xenium phone with a dual SIM
feature, try to activate the 2 SIM cards only
when absolutely necessary. If you are in a
country with single coverage, deactivate the
non-covered SIM to prolong battery usage.
• If you’re not using applications like Bluetooth,
WIFI, GPS and JAVA, turn them off. And be sure
to lock your phone to prevent accidental
pressing of the keys with the auto-lock feature.
• Adjust the intensity and duration of your display
screen’s backlight to low or medium level and
• Full charging and full running down of your
battery will extend its life. Charge the battery
once the low-battery warning comes on.
• Temperature will impact battery usage. Over
time, heat will degrade your battery’s
performance. Keep your phone out of the sun
or a hot car. If in low temperature, place your
phone in a warmer place (eg. your pocket), as
battery capacity decreases as the temperature
drops.
• Always use authentic accessories as they enable
your battery to perform at its peak. Nonauthentic accessories (eg. chargers) can damage
your battery and even your phone.
