Can't disable 3G? Used to be able to with Milestone 1Support

    Hi all,

    I bought a Milestone 2 to replace my Milestone 1, mainly because it didn't have enough memory for apps, and not all apps could be moved to the SD.

    Both Milestones are the UK, unlocked, unbranded versions.

    With the Milestone 1 I could disable the 3G and use 2G only, to save battery when needed. With the Milestone 2 this option seems to have disappeared. I can no longer find it in the settings, nor using the 2g-3g widgets I used with the Milestone 1.

    I am using the same sim card on the M2 which I used on M1, so the network does allow for 2G only.

    Any ideas on how I can disable 3G? Or has the option really been removed?


    PS the Milestone 2 is rooted, the M1 isn't, but I'm not sure this is relevant

    You can. You are looking in the wrong place. Check Settings> Mobile and wireless networks> Mobile networks> Select network.

    The menu is slightly different from my Milestone 1, even though they both run Android 2.2, and I had missed this...
