mrtoken: Ok getting a little worried now

Anyone with a telecom one (9300T) can you check your cellstandby for battery

It is using more than the screen is.
yesterday phone was at 30% with only 2 hours screen on.
Cellstandby used 67%




Anyone?

My cell standby started off at 85% this morning and is now down to 50%

I would not get too hung up about this "big" number, in the overall scheme of things the battery life is excellent, overnight (from a full charge) it lost 10% over 7odd hours which is not good but no means for concern, i haven't got enough hours of steady use under my belt to gauge expected drain but the best i every got on my S2 was 1%/hr drain overnight and 3~4%/hour drain during the day (auto sync, 3G etc all on and active)

Think of it this way, battery consumption is very low and cell standby is consuming a large chunk of that low consumption. The boys over at XDA are all experiencing the same issues so you can bet your bottom dollar if it is a bug they will get to the bottom of it. In the meantime enjoy a great phone with great battery life knowing it can only get even better :)

Yes you are right just have to think of it that way, if that is the case then they have done a lot of working getting the screen % way down.

whare house stationary did not like me today , when i gave them the "norman ross " receipt proof didn't even want to see it...the manager rang up norman ross said the price of 797 doesn't exist advertised anywhere ...

next turn was for noel leemings

after nearly 30m of waiting he comes back (store manager)with a 810 best price we can do , i said to them, that's not 5% off as advertised said u will have to take it with head office.....

Goodluck dude. One of the conditions though is that both Warehouse Stationary at the other store have to have the product in stock. It might make it tricky
