Default "Phone" process is draining too much battery

My phone has been dying quickly recently, so I checked the battery section of my setting, and the process labelled "phone" had taken up 42%, more than the screen process had. How do I fix this?

It could be struggling to get signal and boosting the antenna power to try and keep it.
PRL/Profile updates will help usually, you could also put the phone in airplane mode if don't need the radio on.
