    gotta thank you for the tut i was wrong about the method i used to turn off all data keeping it on 3g is really the way to go. its so helpful even when im being capped for going past my 2.5gig data limit atleast with 3g i get 300-490 kbps compared to 150max on 1x and capped 4g :D

    Update my 3g has been getting stronger in the tampa bay area thanks to this tut i no longer have to worry about waiting for my new bill cycle to start again to get my 4g again, ill just switch to 3g and enjoy it in the mean while :D

    I've tried this but the 3g randomly disappears. Switching back to hybrid automatic I get 4g/3g but they cut out after awhile. Just reflashed #2_2.1. Will try this again.

    idk why but my any cut isnt working. I searched it on the play store and it didnt come up so i went into root explorer and went to app back ups then user apps and i had the apk for any cut there so i installed and when i try to make a shortcut it says "shortcut made" or whatever but when i go to my home screen theres not shortcut.. any thoughts on how to get the shortcut to show up?

    it stinks that the phone has to reboot so what you save in internet usage you lose when rebooting i used this on my indulge before and it does help a little

    toke have u read this whole thread yet its all they talking about and i highly recommend it!

    in terms of trying to get your anycut to work try long pressing on ur home screen and selecting shortcut then choose any cut now go make that shortcut like u was trying before and see if it works now.

    I'm using Any Cut. But there is a problem. After I'm using wifi at home and I go outside, then once in a while, I don't have internet connection so I have to restart the phone to get 3G. If I didn't use wifi, I'm sure that it would be fine. Is there another solution that would avoid this problem?

    My phone is constantly in 1x :( I used to have good service here, but something is broken :( I haven't seen the 4g symbol in months.
    My wifi is a lot faster though ;) 100 megabit :D down 5 megabit up (upload speed sucks, but it works :D)

    I live in sacramento and get great service. Since prl3030, i get3.5mbps consistently now...:D

    Back to 4g. I use power widget lite to toggle data on/off to save battery. But after reading this thread, i'm going to check out any cut. Sounds interesting.

    Thanks!

    That's decent for sure Trek:thumbup:
    I still have spots here only say 4 miles from the home base where it goes from no service to 1x/3g/4g within a mile on the way to work.
    Guess I'm fortunate I don't live in that mile "range" :rofl:
