What does "standby time" mean?

What exactly is "standby time"?

Is it the time your battery will keep its charge if the BB is turned off entirely?

Or is it the time it will keep a charge if the BB is "on" but not being used?

As rnich120 stated, take all official data with a pinch (or grain) of salt.


"Standby time" is how long your phone will be operational before losing the battery charge.  You will NEVER achieve such a time when you use your phone because it's the time achieved by the manufacturer UNDER PERFECT CONDITIONS.  A manufacturer will test a phone with a new battery, with no applications running and in an area with a very strong cell signal.  You'll never achieve the same results but it makes comparing different models easier.
