Why do you say it doesn't affect the battery?
I wish people would explain why they believe the cell standby has no effect on the battery. My device was fine until yesterday and now I have the cell standby issue and it gets warm and drains in a few hours. If the battery wasn't actually draining then why does it get so warm? It charges much slower now also as a result of the battery drainage. I already tried the "fix" and it maybe slowed down the drainage, maybe... I can't tell yet. If it did, it didn't fix it. Still don't get the 2 days or more that I used to get out of the battery. I have the international version. I have tried different roms as well and resets....no change. The cell drainage could possibly be a separate issue but something is draining everyone's batteries.
