    cell phone

    When I check what is using the battery I see that 37 percent is being used by the cell phone. What gives here, since the a500 has no cell phone?

    Welcome to the forum!!!


    You are talking about cell stanby and most of us have the same issue. I have talked to Acer Level 2 support and they didn't have an answer or solution. It is my personal belief that the A500 and the upcoming A501 share the same internals which would include a 3G radio. The only solution until Acer gives us a fix is to put it in airplane mode and then turn wifi on.

    I did call the Swedish support about this cell-standby issue. They told me that cell-standby has to do with gps and wifi not 3g. Not on my device that is a wifi model. I have A501 and 3G in my device info but according to my serial-number it is a wifi-only version. So I'm not hoping in having a 3g model any more.
    Did anyone get a lower battery-consumtion when using the airplane-mode? I haven't tried. It's not a big issue for me
