If you're on Verizon, you don't.

That's for Verizon. Other carriers don't need to go through that. For them, it's just a setting in the network settings.

It's easier to do that to switch between LTE and non-LTE, though. The Sprint version's toggle in Wireless Settings requires a reboot or knowledge of your MSL.

I have ATT how do I switch to 3g or can I? I talked to a person at ATT and they did say that until they get all 4g every where that the 4g lite will drain the battery faster.
