Are there any downsides to ICS other than the 3g option being cut from the roster or is it all sunshine and gazebo baskets?
Only bummer for me is likely just a temporary setback til app developers sort it out. Seems that no 3rd party apps can toggle GPS ON/OFF (and possibly other functions) yet due to changes in direct calls in ICS. :/

Don't get your tightie whities in a bunch if you don't like my humor or get offended when I skip putting smiley faces all over. IF you cannot handle online comments and get bent out of shape, go home.
ics and switching from 3g to 4g manually
Anyone know if this works or not?
Also, I read somewhere that it is "not healthy" for the phone to leave it in CDMA only. If true, what's the basis for that?
More than anything else, it seems to me this is Verizon's way of forcing people to use their LTE network. They spent major bucks on it and want people to use it to relieve 3G congestion.

Download the "LTE OnOff" app from the Google Play store. Once you download it and launch it, it takes you into a "hidden" section of phone settings, one of which is radio. There is a pull down menu where you can choose "CDMA auto (PRL)". Choose that and your phone will work in 3G exclusively. Change it back to "LTE/CDMA/EvDo" if and when you want to use 4G LTE.
