Re: cell standby??

It seem to refer to radio data antenna transmitter and I'm pretty sure your background data is eating your battery. GO TO settings/wireless networks if wifi and bluetooth are checked but not using then uncheck. then enter to mobile network and uncheck data traffic. Also go to settings/account&sync and uncheck background data if not needed. Then please RESTART your phone and check if battery last more than before.
