    Unhappy gs3 LTE switch

    im pretty excited for this phone to come out as my s2 recently was stolen on a trip to florida, still mourning over the loss ...but i was wondering if there was an option to turn off the lte because i live in a spotty coverage area and i know that's a huge battery drain when your phones looking for a good signal all day long...would this be a huge deal breaker for any of you guys?

    I'm in a similar boat except that I don't have any LTE coverage.

    I saw a post on XDA about this. You can't disable LTE, but what you can do, is add an APN specifically for HSPA+ and select it.

    Let me see if I can find the post.

    Go to Settings, More Settings, scroll down to Mobile Networks, click Access Point Names, press Menu and click New APN and then add this,

    then go back in and make sure this is the selected APN and it should drop you from LTE and only connect to HSPA+
