    Go to Settings and About Phone and see your Battery Usage. Look at Cell Standby. Is it 50%?

    If so, put then phone in airplane mode, and if possible plug it into the charger for a few seconds and then unplug it. Repeat the above steps. If it's now at 0%, then you will need to put the phone in airplane mode, and then out of it, every time you restart your phone. It's a known bug and the only way to fix it is to either never restart your phone, or if you do, switch to airplane mode and then back out of it.

    are you talking about time-without-signal? I thought the consensus was that it really didn't have much effect on anything?

    I've never *not* had 50% tws.

    edit: effect, gdi

    You may want to try *228 and update your roaming. If you moved recently your phone may not be set right for the towers in your area. Searching for proper signal will kill a battery quickly.
