    I don't get 4G coverage at home, but have a solid 3G signal.

    Does the phone waste resources constantly looking for 4G signal when it is in 3G? Is it worth the trouble to switch to "3G only" mode, or is there much difference?

    Not really having battery issues. It hasn't ever dropped below 50% by the time I plug it in at night.

    Also, it seems to me that 3G data is faster when the 4G option is turned off. This is completely subjective, but that's what got me thinking about turning it off when at home.

    Just don't want to put unnecessary demand on the phone if easily avoided.

    Switch to CMDA only. Unless you are in and out of 4g coverage, I cannot see the battery being taxed much if any.
