Ok this is driving me crazy... how do I disable 3g? So that it only connects to 2g? But stays connected to the internet? I live in one of those spots where I have a strong 2g and weak 3g but it is always switching and switching so I never get text. Help please?

I asked this too, early on, in a thread about battery life, but I don't think I ever got an answer, and now I've lost the thread. (it's hard to find in 7298 threads about battery life)
So I'm curious as well. On my Bold 9000 I used to disable and enable 3G all the time.

Go to dialer and enter *#*#4636#*#*
This will take you a test page, then go to phone info> set preferred network type to GSM only.
To turn on H+ set network to GSM auto (PRL).
If connections reverts to H+ restart phone. If connection to H+ won't come back on in GSM auto> restart phone.

Re: Disable 3g
Those solutions would disable mobile data entirely (fine for text messaging, not for other things). I used to disable 3G and leave EDGE connected on my Blackberry. I often travel to rural areas for days at a time with no 3G service, and disabling the 3G radio ONLY would improve battery life noticeably. Would be nice if we had that option.
