    From the looks of it, on the Galaxy S4 ATT there isn't a way to do this, is there anything out there that can do this for me? Every app I have found takes me to the network settings where with ATT/GSM doesnt seem to be anything I can do there to change 4g

    You mean you just want to turn off mobile data?

    Pull down notifications with two fingers. Click on your mobile providers name. Turn off mobile data

    No, I still want to be able to receive calls but rather it just go to 2g/3g or what ever it would default to...4g wastes more battery when not using it and on top of that I don't have very good 4g service at my house, like 2 bars max

    Turning off mobile data only effects data. You can still receive/make calls/texts with mobile data off.

    Under Mobile Networks settings you can check "use only 2g"

    Yeah, ATT has a tendency to get manufacturers to remove 4G control settings in their phones.

    So, you'll see varying advice on this.

    I'm going to move this to the SGS4 forum for you, maybe someone there knows and can prove me wrong.

    Interesting, not sure if that is true 2g as when I turn off mobile data, the amount of bars I have don't change

    And there is no where in mobile settings where I can select "use only 2g"

    I think this is ATT being too smart for themselves...There was this issue on the iphone 4s
