    I have searched Google and cannot find any information on how to turn off LTE on the Verizon S3. Some direct you to a Phone info application but that does not appear to work anymore. Is there anyway to turn off LTE without rooting and custome ROM? I'm looking to save battery life.

    Depends. If you are in a strong lte area then i wouldn't bother. But in ax marginal lte area, it could help.

    Note: With Jelly Bean, that app still works to turn off LTE, however if you attempt to re-enable it, it won't work as it has before.

    To re-enable LTE, go to "Settings --> More Settings (under Wireless and Networks) --> Mobile Networks --> Network Mode" Switch to "LTE/CDMA"

    I put it back into LTE/CDMA and I get an occasional pop up wanting me to go into global mode. If I'm not leaving the country does it matter if I go into global to stop the pop up?

    So long as you don't leave the country, you can set it to global as Verizon doesn't roam in the US.
