    I don't think you can disable it at all, unless you're on wifi.

    The phone info app will work so you can set it to 3G but for whatever reason you can't turn 4g back on with it. You have to do it through mobile networs under settings

    Greetings BCJ2,

    I have no trouble going from 4G to 3G and back with this app.

    You could have your friend get a file manager with app backup options, backup the app up and transfer it to a computer/SDcard. Transfer it to your phone and install from there.

    I don't condone piracy, but I think this is something different. The app was free and there doesn't seem to be a way to get it any longer.

    If a mod disagrees with my post, feel free to delete it and admonish me.

    I find the G3 is opposite of the Razr, in that for the Razr, 4G battery life is awful and 3G battery life is good. I find after two G3s (white and blue) and being mainly in 4G areas that 3G battery life is poor and 4G battery life is great (not just good).

    The G3 battery life using 4G is better than the Razr with 3G. 4G on the Razr is a cruel joke for battery life.

    Point in comparing the two devices is 3G battery life is not that good on the G3, compared to other devices. Droid 3 was also way better for 3G battery life.
