    Guys...can you help a brother out? New to Lg Ally (2 weeks old) - absolutely love the phone.



    Did the 50% without a signal fix and things seem to be holding at CDMA in the phone settings.



    When I check my battery usage, "cell standby" is still always #1 at around 50% even though time without a signal is 0-3%. Maybe I need to reboot and reactivate the signal fix?



    Thanks

    No, if your time without signal is that low, you are fine.

    I'm new to Ally also and my battery is very short lived with cell stanby at 97% with phone only on for about 2minutes. I do not understand when you speak of fixing the "bug"? Could someone please tell me how to do that. I took also go to managing running services, and turn off what I'm not using, but that doesn't seem to help the life of the battery either. Also, I read somewhere about rebooting the phone...how is that done?



    Thanks!

    Get yourself advanced task killer. That will enable you to shut down apps completely after using them. Then go into your dialer and press *#*#4696#*#*, press "phone information", press menu, select "select radio band". * IT WILL FORCE CLOSE, THIS IS OK. When it reopens, scroll down to preferred network type and change to "CDMA Auto (PRL)". You need to do this each time you reboot the phone (take out the battery).



    Hope this helps.

    These are not the same directions that I have. By default, the phone is set to CDMA only. I dial the numbers and then just scroll down and change it to GSM/CDMA.

    I have had my phone for at least a couple weeks now & my battery still dies fast. It got just a little better but not much. I do let my battery completely drain & turn the phone off before putting it on the charger. I also put it on airplane mode when it is on the charger. I even downloaded the advanced task killer. Nothing seems to help. My husband got the same exact phone on the same exact day & his battery life definitely has improved way more than mine! He gets a full day or more before having to charge. What can I do?

    One of the biggest complaints has been about battery life...And I am not so sure many of them are valid. For many of us, this is our first true power phone (oxymoron since the Ally is a mid level powerphone but still...lol). I am really thinking it all depends on individual usage habits. I know I have had mine for only 2 weeks and am constantly messing around with it. Smoke breaks at work, texting, browsing, app searching, facebook, etc..... The people who have stated they have long battery life are admitted low users. Just my 2 cents.....

    Ya I agree. I was pretty upset at first too. But once I started treating it more and more like my old Blackberry, and it spent hours sitting like my blackberry used to... the battery life was pretty comparable. It's when we treat these phones like a laptop that we notice the batteries start acting like laptop batteries.

    I agree with what has been said so far. The era of phones staying charged for 4 days is over. These devices are powerful and drain fast. Your options are to keep it on a charger as much as possible. Plug it in at your computer and in your car. Whenever you can. Or get a bulky extended battery. Be grateful, more powerful phones like the HTC Incredible have even less battery life.
