    How can I shut the 4g off and just use my wifi connection when browsing the web, downloading apps etc.? I just got the Esteem on MetroPCS and am trying to save my 4g data and battery when i'm at home or have access to wifi. Thanks.

    While just turning on wifi is the first step, if you wanna make sure you not using any mobile data aka 4G you will have to disable mobile data.

    Menu, settings, Wireless & networks, mobile data....
    Something like that ^

    what i like to did is have a widget on my homescreen Data Enabler Widget so when im not by wifi i can easily turn 4g back on without going into settings.
