    I checked my battery usage and 33% is being used while Phone Idle and 36 while cell standby. Anyone know if this is normal or is my draining too much battery?? THanks for the help.
    BTW my Fiancee DL a Ping Pong app and played it once. I checked my battery to see what was using it, the ping pong app had drained 90%. So dont DL it!!!

    It's normal if that's the way your phone is/was being used. These numbers will vary depending upon usage. How long are you going on a charge?

    What is the difference between 'Phone Idle' and 'Cell Standby'?

    cell standby is the actual CDMA radio usage

    Idle usage is everything running while the phone is not being used and the screen is off for the most part
