- Ok this is probably a weird question, but.. Is there any way that I can default my phone to 1x? I want to be able to have my email still update but not be using a lot of battery from using 4g or 3g. If I can't default it to 1x is there any way to just default to 2g?08-12-2011 09:18 PM

Return to default by setting back to "CDMA + LTE/EvDo auto"

Edit: Just checked and it also works on a native signal. You must be thinking of "CDMA auto (PRL)". That's a different animal.
Hint! You must dial the number above. You cannot use the new MR2 Menu to do this. That uses different syntax.

Under Phone Information, there's a drop down menu that allows you to change your network settings. Most are pretty self-explanatory, but selecting CDMA auto (PRL) sets the phone to use 3G and 1xRTT (referred to as 2G). Selecting the CDMA only option keeps the phone on 1xRTT.

- An easy way to change network settings is by using Phone Info, a free app available in the Market.

- Exactly! The app "Phone Info" simply dials that number for you. The confusing thing is this... with MR2 they included what they call a 3/4G Toggle. Well, yes, that's all it does is to toggle between 3G and 4G. You cannot get to 1x using that toggle. However, they used an unfortunate choice of words for the 3G setting - they chose to use "CDMA only". The reason that is unfortunate is because in the Phone Info screen, the "CDMA only" choice refers to 1x and NOT 3G. Sigh...
Compare that to a setting that CyanogenMod7 (my current ROM) has that plainly states: Use only 2G networks. Much clearer.
