    Just like the title says, I would like to know if there is a way to disable 3G. I have read that it can drain the battery faster than wifi.

    Any kind of help would be much appreciated.

    Thanx

    I use an app called quick settings to enable and disable my 3g. 3g can kill my battery in 6hrs.

    turn on airplane mode and turn on wifi, but that will kill your cell service too.

    You can easily do this without any apps, but it won't be as pretty. I forgot where I found out how to basically get into the X's service menu, but once in this "service" or "diagnostic" menu you can basically turn off the 3G while maintaining 1X or voice calls. I did this about 5 hours ago since the 3G in the area I live is weak and fluctuates from 3G to 1X.

    Here's how:

    1. Go into the Phone app
    2. Using the keypad, dial as follows: *#*#INFO#*#*
    3. This will take you to the phone's system diagnostic menu. Scroll down to the part where it says "Set Preferred network type:"
    4. Choose CDMA only to DISABLE 3G
    5. Or Choose CDMA auto (PRL) to ENABLE 3G/1X (original default setting)
    6. Hit the back button all the way until the home screen, this should save the previous settings

    You can also hit the back button one time to see other detailed stats for the phone such as batt info, history, usage statistics, and wifi info.

    Hope this helps :)
