Have a good time and help others when you can! (otherwise the mean android ghost will come and underclock and overvolt your phone!!)
That's what I was worried about. I'd be fine if it notified me of the missed call once I was back in service range. I want to switch because I usually have good HSPA+ coverage, but occasionally I'm out of range, and I don't want to miss anything.
I want to switch because of, obviously the better speeds, and to answer your question, it actually improved my battery life. My only explanation for this is that it no longer has to switch between EDGE and HSPA+

Running WCDMA only will help with speeds just a tad if you're already in a 4g area.
I've used my phone in that mode for a while. I fall in and out of coverage, and when you dont get that wcdma service you have no service. so you wont get missed call notifications, texts, etc...because you have NO SERVICE. Once you're back into a service area, any messages will be pushed to your phone.
Because I move around a lot during the day for work and school, i've decided to leave it on Auto (WCDMA/GSM). The speeds are fine as is.
