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

    Sorry, I know I have seen threads about this but didn't pay too much attention since I didn't live or work in a 4G area. But today I look at my phone which I haven't used all day to this point and the battery is over half gone. Now I see 4g LTE on my status bar, so apparently my work is now in a 4g area.

    Since I am at work I don't have a ton of time to search, but can anyone update me with whether there is an app or solution to turning off 4g and saving battery?

    First know I am not a phone expert.. I don't "root" or anything, not even sure what that means, so I aplogize ahead of time for my ignorance!

    Thanks in advance.

    Basically toggle off 4G when not needed.

    I thought there was no 4g toggle? Is there a way to stay in 3g?

    That is what you need.
    selecting cdma auto (prl) turns off 4g but keeps all other radios on.
