    Check your Acer A500 Model ID

    There seems to be an issue with the A500 having a battery drain caused by cell standby. I have it and have read about many others as well. Well this seems odd for a wifi only tablet. Well I was poking around my A500 today and came across something pretty interesting. I don't actually have an A500. I have an A501. This is the version that is slated to go to AT&T and has the 3G radio.

    -Go into your settings menu
    -Click about tablet
    -Click device information
    -Fifth one down is your model ID

    So I am guessing this may have something to do with why we are getting battery drain from cell standby.

    I have the A501 as well does this mean we just need a sim card in the slot?

    I guess it would be that easy if it had a sim card slot. I have no idea what is going on. Maybe A501 innards in an A500 case. I think I am gonna give Acer a call tomorrow.

    Isn't the SIM slot next to the micro SD slot? Just covered by plastic or tape?

    Why yes it is. I didn't look close enough. I thought that was solid. I just looked again and it looks like something removable. Either plastic or grey tape.

    I just checked my stats. The screen is using most of my battery. Cell standby was at 6%. I have an A500.

    I have an A501. A couple of lines above that is a SKU model. Mine is listed as 3G.
