    Cell standby usage

    In the battery details screen under cell standby, is anyone displaying "time without signal"? Is this normal?

    I dont have a droid jet, but sounds like this is the time when ur :droid: has no Cell-Tower.
    This increases battery usage normaly, cuz smartphones try to increase radio to find cell towers....

    Hope that helped!

    I have been having the same experience. My bars go from full to zero, to full, without me moving the phone. I've posted this on this forum and a couple others, but haven't gotten any answers yet, as to whether that is normal or not.
    and my phone all week had "time without signal" over 85%, but today it's been at 25% and 18%. If I find anything out, I'll be sure to post.

    Yes, i did do the *228 #2 a couple days ago. I didn't notice any change at first. But now I'm wondering if maybe that was what did the trick, and why my time w/o signal is now down under 20%.

    actually, i literally just checked and my bars are still going from 4 to 0...

    I even went into verizon to change the phone but they ran a few call tests and it passed so they said they cant change it.
    I have also been told that the phone went right to voicmail several times during they day. That bothers me

    kunak,
    that is just a verizon store that is trying to strong arm you. You have 30 days from purchasing a new phone to exchange it with verizon.
    Make sure you go to an official Verizon store, and not an "authorized retailer", and you should get a different response. Or maybe try calling verizon support directly.

    I have already changed my first droid for not holding a charge. I wonder if there is a certain # of times in that 30 days you can change a phone.

    ahhh...well that I'm not sure of. But I have read on multiple forums that people have had to return their droids more than once. But maybe those people's phones failed Verizon's crack test that your phone passed.
