Default Trying to Stop Cell Standby

So I was looking at the settings.db with the sql3 lite editor and came across this: Line 59 mobile_data value 1. However, I'm constantly in airplane mode and only turn on wifi and bluetooth as needed.

Is it possible that this line is the controlling factor to keep the Streak from turning on the mobile radio? Would setting this to value=0 stop cell standby?

I'm a little afraid to tamper with it since I don't know what it means - does anyone more knowledgeable than I know what this line controls?

Not actually - I installed juice defender but mobile_data still has a value of 1. And cell standby still is showing at 88%!!!

I also had this huge battery drain to cell standby (on the wifi only model...)

trying to flash the Honeystreak, and see if this changes (and to try out HC too hehe!)

Not on the stock ROM. I have it and the cell controls only work with certain custom ROMs.

Okay, that makes sense. I was using that for awhile on the stock, and noticed no difference. Uninstalled it a week later.
Will try to test it out on streakdroid once I get back onto a working rom (fell into the BSOD of Honeystreak B3)

Just keep airplane mode (Setttings>Wireless) on all the time - no need to ever turn it off since there really is no phone in this tablet.

That doesn't stop the phone modem. If you check the settings you will see that the device is still picking up signal from the cell towers. It just isn't connecting with the mobile network.
