How to prolong the battery life of your phone
To have your mobile phone function properly, sufficient battery power is important. For the powersaving purpose, do the following, if applicable:
• Turn off the Bluetooth function of your phone.
• Set the backlight level and duration of your phone to a low value.
• Turn on the auto keypad lock, turn off the key sounds, tap vibration, or vibration alerts.
• Establish GPRS connection when needed. Otherwise, your phone will keep searching for GPRS
connection, and drain your battery power.
• Turn off your phone if there is no coverage. Otherwise, the phone will keep searching for
network, and drain your battery power.
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.

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.

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
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 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 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.
• 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 pre-charge (up to 5 minutes in some

Specific Absorption Rate Information
International standards
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 X2566 model phone when tested for compliance
against the standard was 0.993 W/kg for ICNIRP recommendation.
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.

Tips & tricks
Optimizing your Philips Xenium battery
Here are some steps to help you optimize your Philips Xenium’s battery
How to optimize the standby and talk time of your phone?
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 powerdraining setting while Silent Mode consumes the least amount of
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 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.
How to extend your battery’s life?
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
Always use authentic accessories as they enable your battery to
