    you can search "LTE Switch" in the market for an app that will give you a shortcut to the settings. I don't think any widgets are working to switch it yet. At least on the Bionic.

    I noticed the battery droping and installed some voice action apps that were still Running in the background (and getjar), put on the battery saver mode and you can see how much more efficient it was in idle All day yesterday. I think I would have made 24hrs using only 50%.
    Battery drain is has always been from an app, usually using data. It does much worse on 4g or of course when its on and being used I can see 10-15% drain easly per hour.
    Standard battery stock in 3G some wifi.

    Not true. If you're using the settings network "CDMA only/CDMA + LTE" toggle, you're switching to 3g rather than 4g, and you'll still get data, just (theoretically) more slowly. Actually, Verizon is having problems lately and I find that when LTE (4g) is enabled I sometimes lose data connectivity altogether, and turning LTE off (3g) lets me access data again. Screwy. I hope they get their act together quickly, that sucks.

    Keep off of it as much as possible.
    Turn off 4g until when you need it.
    Extended battery if they got them.
    Have chargers everywhere.
    A little common sense goes a long way.

    I agree but you either get performance or good battery life. most of the time you can't have both.

    24hrs.

    I got 24hrs. of battery just the other day! I'll post a pic when I get my phone lol I left it at home and right now I am at work. :frown: The first 8 or so hours was little to no use at all. I have no extended battery either but I did have juice defender activated. I am rooted but haven't flashed any roms yet :happy3:

    Just recently got 4G in my area.. And it is a battery killer. Even when phone isn't being used. So I grabbed enabler and it's fantastic. You can also go into settings and battery and have the data turn off automatically after 15 minutes of use. Also use a task killer to shut down alps that are running but not being used.

    You might want to get the extended battery. I have it and can be at 76% after 9 hours of light use.

    Task killers aren't that great as the Android OS will turn an app back on if it thinks you're going to use that app again. Take a look at http://geekfor.me/faq/you-shouldnt-be-using-a-task-killer-with-android/ or http://lifehacker.com/5650894/andro...ed-what-they-do-and-why-you-shouldnt-use-them for more information.
