Re: turning off 4g
Things like this would, in most cases that I am aware of, be done through rooting your phone and modifying the radios or the ROM. Technically though, the Sensation 4G uses HSPA+ which is an advanced form of 3G technologies. Unfortunately it seems that the standard has a similar effect as LTE does on phones, causing battery drain that is less than what one would hope for.

I know we are paying for 4G speeds and stuff, but most people wont notice the difference in speeds if they have a program to use 3G antennas for things under a certain file size. I know my emails dont need to be on my phone a half second faster, as long as im getting them within a minute of when they show up on the server, im happy.
EDIT: I will post information about my findings if I find any type of application like the one I mentioned above
