What is cell radio? it is using up a lot of my batt!

Hey guys. Recently my batt dropped quite fast. Then when i went to check the batt use page, I saw that cell radio used up about 20-30% of my batt. I had no idea why it happened out of the sudden as it only used up a few percent previously. So can anyone tell me what is cell radio? And how can i prevent it from using up my batt too much? Thanks in advance=)

Re: What is cell radio? it is using up a lot of my batt!

If I remember this correctly, Cell Radio is basically the part of the phone which talks to

the local mobile mast (Cellular Radio), so its not an app as such, but part of your phone's

running services.

I think I remember seeing this on my old HTC Desire, when the local mast was being a bit

weird, and the phone was continually connecting/disconnecting.

I'm not 100% sure on this though, but turn your phone off for a few minutes, then restart it,

see if that clears the issue.

Are you having any issues with poor network reception where you are using the phone at all?

hey listen..

the cell radio u were talking about is the phone idle time..

ie when u dint use ur phone..no display nothing..

nd the reason it showed more % was that u used ur phone comparitively less than other days :smileyhappy:
