So is this a problem with every Android phone? I suffered with the 50% time without signal bug on my Eris for a while. Didn't notice it on my X that past few days until now. Doing the airplane mode trick now to see if that cures it. I thought this crap would be over with on this phone. **For those who want to know how to check for this and try the airplane mode trick to see if it helps do the following: 1. Go to settings > Battery Manager > Battery Use > Cell Standby. If it says time without signal is 50% instead of something lower it could possibly be draining your battery. 2. To try and remedy this, put the phone into airplane mode. Hold in the power/lock button at the top and choose "airplane mode". Wait until you see the airplane icon on the top right, then power off your phone. Power the phone back on and let it sit in airplane mode for a minute. Then go back and turn airplane mode off. You should be able to go to step 1 and notice the time without signal should be less than 50%. Keep checking after a while. 0% would be the best.
