1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    4G finally hit my town yay! Question though, I've heard that it takes WAY more battery, is there a way to switch between 3G and 4G if I want to conserve battery?

    There's an app called LTE Switch in the market that is a shortcut to this menu.

    Has anyone else ran the speedtest app? I noticed 4g lite up some time this week, Wednesday I think but my speeds are not all that impressive 5 down and 9 up, yeah I know that's backwards but several tests later... same results?

    Not sure if something has changed but all the really knowledgeable guys say not to use task killers.

    I don't live in a 4G area. But when I travel into 4G areas. I keep my Bionic on CDMA / 3G only. Unless I need the speed of the LTE network. Then 3G works ok for me. Plus it saves the battery. I actually wish Motorola had made a shortcut key on the phone to enable/disable the LTE.
