It just recently came to my attention that the cell radio (cell standby) does NOT turn off automatically when wifi is turned on and connected. I took my phone off the charger an hour ago and I'm already down to 91%. It says "cell standby" is taking up 22% of battery drainage, and has been on for that whole hour. I used to conserve my G2 battery by connecting to wifi at home and it made a HUGE difference. The GSIII? Not so much...

90% now, as I continue typing this. It appears to melt away by 1% every couple minutes...
