Anyway, I think that losing that much battery while the phone is asleep is completely ridiculous.
I can't find any posts anywhere on how to turn off 3g, but keep 1x signal to still receive phone calls and texts. This might have been answered within another random post, but I could not find a thread with this as the main topic.
Does anyone know how to do this? I do not want to use airplane mode.
I went to settings>wireless & networks>mobile networks in the phone but there is no option there to deselect 3g or 1x only.
This will solve your problem.
Touch the phone at the top line where the battery level,time etc, are located. Pull down that area and you will see wifi, bluetooth, gps, mobile data and auto rotation. Touch mobile data. Youu will get a messsage that you will no longer be able to use your browser, email etc. Touch OK. Data is now turned off.
You can still use wifi, but not 3G etc. Undo the same procedure if you want to access 3G.
