I have an AT&T Captivate. Having trouble with signal strength on 3G. Seems to keep good signal strength when in EDGE mode. I live at hairy edge of 3G coverage and phone goes in and out of it. Any reccomendations on an APP or Widget to turn off 3G and force phone to stay in EDGE mode?

There was a method that I used before just so I could maybe get better battery life.

Dial *#*#INFO#*#* on your dialpad and find the information about your phone. You should see something in the area of network or network type. Find the CDMA option or menu and just choose to use CDMA only.

Sorry for the horrible explanation. Hopefully that helps.

This is a GSM phone so I wouldn't think a CDMA setting would help. THanks though.
I see several apps out there on the market but with really varying degrees of ratings. Wondering if anyone had a good experience with one that worked on a Captivate to toggle between 2G and 3G.
