4G on the Note 2
I've got an Orange UK Note 2, but have unlocked it and using it on Vodafone UK and it's working like a charm.
However, I cant seem to be able to find a way to turn off just the 4G radio, to stop it hunting for a signal it's not going to find and wasting my battery.
Does anyone know of a way of doing this? All googling seems to find is ways of doing this with US based Note 2's which isn't an option in my phone.
When I go into settings the only options available are Auto mode and 3G only. I could do with just 2G and 3G.
Ive also tried the Phone Info app, and a some of the various 4G toggle widgets, but none of these seem to work either.
The battery life on my Note 2 is nowhere near what most people seem to be getting, and I'm wondering if it is the 4G radio which may be part of the problem. I'm struggling to get 14 hours out of it.
This is a screenshot from today, although I did use the Maps for a couple of hours which isn't my normal usage:

Gps tears through my battery as well. I turn that off ASAP when done navigating. I stay on 4g all day and get a day and half without charging. But I usually get about 10-12 hours of screen on time. Which is about the same as my ipad, the wifi version not the 3g.

Re: 4G on the Note 2
Just thought I would follow up on this post from last week and the battery troubles I was having.
Thanks so much for the gsam battery monitor recommendation. I managed to track the major problem down to a huge amount of wake locks occurring for the media server. Once I managed to force stop the media server I am now getting at least 24 hours of pretty hard usage which I am really pleased about.
Thanks once again for everyone's help. 8-)
