    So my cell standby is usually the top battery killer. As of right now, its used 51% of my battery. My phone has been unplugged for 4h 49m. The cell standby has been on for 4h 49. Any ideas why this is constantly using so much battery?

    Because your not using your phone. If you use it more often you will then see the screen and whatever apps your using then have a larger percentage of battery use. If the phone isn't in use a lot then this is normal.

    This is a reporting error. There have been plenty of threads about it:
