    I could but I don't. I do all day at work so that's 8-9 hours but after I just keep it off. I use WiFi at the house.

    I leave mine running. I have 4G at work and on my commute, and WiFi at home which automatically turns off 4G when it connects.

    I leave it off, but that's cause the 4G in my area is spotty at best. I just turn it on when I go somewhere that I know has good 4G coverage.

    That pretty much sums up the whole 4g experience for most of us. I would gladly trade in those two meaningless letters so my phone would have a shorter name.

    I leave 4g on unless I know there won't be anywhere for me to charge my phone.

    I leave my 4G on 24/7 365 just cause I like the cool 4G symbol in the notification bar. I don't get 4G here though, but leaving it on sometimes gives me a placebo effect thinking I'm getting what I pay for.

    You can do this to make you feel better and get a quasi 4G experience...

    Go home and kick on wifi.....invite a bunch of friends over that use a different carrier and quickly show them how fast the phone is...on 4G! Gotta do it fast though or they will catch on.

    Are you holding the phone upside down? Sometimes that helps with 4g coverage in areas without 4g.

    I thought moving it in the infinity motion then shaking it up and down got me better coverage...

    To think, I've just been holding it wrong.

    When I am outside of my house I use 4g. I live in the immediate Philadelphia are and we have good coverage in this area. When in the house switch right back to Wifi. So I estimate about 8 hours a day on 4g.

    I keep 4G on until I get home then automatically switch to Wi-Fi and at work because they offer free public Wi-Fi as well.

    I live in Baltimore, which is supposed to have really good 4G, but I found my speeds are mediocre. When I was on T-mobile with my Sensation, their 4G seemed SO much faster. I use wifi whenever possible. Sprint's 4G in Baltimore doesnt impress

    Ahoskie, NC. No 4G, and no local Sprint coverage. I roam all day, everyday

    4g on and off throughout the day, decent speeds in San Antonio and Austin TX, seems that within the last year or so its not quite as quick (lots more people on the towers i suspect)...
    As far as battery, its not really bad unless its sitting there searching for a 4g signal it won't find
