    Where I work I dont get much of a Sprint signal. And they dont have Wifi so my phone gets a phone signal maybe 50 % of the time and it killing my battery. when I check my battery usage it shows Cell Stanby - Time without a signal is usually 50-60% . Killing my battery . At home where I get a signal and have Wifi I can go all day and have battery to spare BUT at work my battery drops so fast I guess due to always looking for a signal. Is there something I can do or a APP that I can use to help control this. Any help much appreciated.

    The only way I know to fix that issue is to turn off the mobile radio. Long press on the screen=>widgets=>settings=>mobile network. You can turn that off when you're someplace that you don't have enough signal. Of course, that also means that you can't receive calls, but if your signal's that low you might not receive calls anyway. It's an imperfect fix, but there you have it.
