    Found an app today that works.


    Search in the Market for Phone Information

    Or Goto this Link

    https://market.android.com/details?id=myc.phone.PhoneInfo

    Its a direct GUI in to the *#*#4636#*#* interface.

    So if we only have 3g access what should the tab be on? Right now it's on CDMA+LTE/EVDO AUTO.

    I noticed a radio tab too...clicking the "turn radio off" will help battery life?

    Pretty sure turning radio off means turning off the entire 3g/4g/1X radio. This isn't talking about FM/AM.

    For 3g only, I believe CDMA auto (PRL) according to an earlier post.

    There is supposed to be a software update later that will allow you to turn 3G/4G on off as needed. This must be in the bundle of fixes Verizon demanded in order to release the phone. My guess is we won't see it until we get GB 2.4 with sense, hopefully before summer.

    Can anyone confirm that changing to cdma auto (prl) helps with battery life in 3g only areas?

    Can you tell if this setting will revert back to default on a reboot?

    This is awesome. Thank you so much for the info for the app. I live in Detroit which has excellent 4G Coverage, but I really don't need it all the time, because I'm behind a computer at the office and at home...I may use 4G when I'm hanging out. At least this gives me an option to disable it until Verizon gives us a proper fix.

    Another thread referenced the app "Network Mangelow" as a toggle to turn off 4G. I downloaded that one and it seems to work fine, but how does it differ from the one quoted above?
