    I recently got a Nexus 5, and when I dropped it one time, the antenna stopped working. Since then I've been without signal. I noticed that my phone has been dropping in battery life extremely quickly. Currently, it's telling me that Cell Standby has been accounting for 38% of my battery usage. I've removed the sim card and turned off cell radio, but it doesn't seem to have worked. How do I fix this?

    You have a weak cell signal - probably because the antenna isn't connected to the phone. Get that fixed. (The weaker the signal is coming into the phone, the weaker it's going to be coming into the tower, so the phone runs the transmitter as maximum power, draining the battery.)

    It will probably need a major repair. The phone is presumably trying to find a signal and failing to do so because of antenna or other damage, to the detriment of the battery.

    Edit: Posted same moment as above.
