    If it was on your Homescreen and you haven't uninstalled it, it should still be on your phone. Long press the screen and add either a Widget or an Application, and look for it in the lists. It will be a switch/toggle for 3G or 3G/2G, or something like that.

    I am guessing you are using Sense so its probably +>Widget>Settings>Mobile Network you are looking for.

    Am I right?

    long press on a blank part of your homepage. then select widgets, then to the right of the settings option there is an arrow, click that and select the option you want a shortcut for. done.
