    Yes, if you are not using the phone by updating apps, browsing the internet, downloading or streaming music then turn it to 3G. It definitely keeps the battery from draining as fast.

    I keep mine on 3g most of the time. I find even Internet browsing is fine on 3g. I only fire up 4g when I want to download music or a movie or especially when I want to teather (PdaNet).

    I'm a newbie to the tbolt and 4g phones so please forgive my ignorance...4g is not available in my area so do I still have to turn it off or is it off by default? If I have to turn it off how do I do that? And could you share any additional battery saving tips?
    Thanks

    It comes turned on by default, get LTE on/off from the market and set it to cdma auto. This will lock it to 3g and turn the LTE radio off.
