    Mine is usually quite high (40-50%) but I've never seen anything that high.

    Are you somewhere with absolutely terrible signal?

    You've gotta give us more detailed information brotha' on what your settings/usage is.

    Easy example: is your 4g turned on?

    Cant help you out till you give us the information to diagnose...

    4g is always off, background data and sync on, wifi on (neversleep) and mobile network off.

    I do have bad signal inside my apt but i didnt know it would still get that high.

    usage is pretty average, text a few phone calls and playing with my sceens and market.

    Mine was that high one day. It went down but always aroudn 20-30% and Time w/o signal was high, 30-50%. Today I tried changing to "sprint only" network in the settings and amazingly my time w/o signal is down to 7-8%. Battery life is improved today as well. Was getting 14hours til completely dead (still decent) but after switching the network around I am at 47% left 12 hours after unplugging. My cell standby is at 28%. Worth trying. I didn't notice it affected signal or data today.

    Will give it a shot and report back with my findings since I appear to be a prime candidate for this test. My apartment must be lined with led or something.

    Guess ill be safe from the end of the world on the 24th of June..haha.

    Just a tip, but the *#*# trick needs to be done each time the phone is reset. Don't know if you've reset your phone since the first time you did it....

    click cell standby. check your no signal percentage. if its very high do this

    in phone type
    *#*#4636#*#*
    go to phone info
    hit menu -> select radio band
    it will force close, go back to phone info, scroll down to preferred network type and hit cdma auto (prl)
    this makes it so the phone doesnt keep searching for a gsm radio and saves battery

    lmk how you make out.

    edit oh nvm youve already done this

    settings -- wireless and networks -- mobile networks -- roaming. I changed it from
    automatic to sprint only.

    That simply means your phone is spending too much time looking for a cell phone tower to lock on to. That will kill the battery of any cell phone faster than any other thing. See if Sprint will cut you a deal on an signal booster.

    I wonder if the cdma auto is the real culprit. Mine was already set to this and I have had great battery life from day one.
