I have a Focus S and there is no setting. It's not real 4G anyway, so I don't think you can turn it off because I think it uses the same radio. The only way to turn it off is to turn off data. Correct me if I'm wrong.

My point is he needs to under Setting>System and Settings>Applications or else he's never going to become familiar with his phone.

Just because I'm new doesn't mean I'm naive, trust me, I tried everything before asking, and even tried the diagnosis menu before asking, but it seems that there is a new version with mango that has different inputs than the old one so *#2263# doesn't do anything.
So does anyone know the new input or a way to do this? Sometimes I have longer work days than others and would like the battery to last a bit longer. Plus the EDGE connection out here is better than 3G/4G so that should help out the battery a lot.

And palandri, stop being a ******. He asked a simple question. If you don't feel like answering him, then just don't post. Telling people to search the forums or play with their phone is a ****** move. We're all here to help each other. I'm sure you've asked a few questions on some online forums that you could have found the answer to yourself.

I understand your approach, but it's not helpful to everyone. Some people don't have the patience to look around or they get frustrated when they try and they give up and come here looking for help. I know because I do I.T. Support for a living. If I told every one of my customers to "figure it out", I wouldn't have a job. Not to mention, it takes just a few minutes of my time to steer them in the right direction.

OP there is no off switch for the 4g and there are settings for find my phone that reduce the battery hit but the only way to turn it off is to turn out location services. Both find my phone and 4g piggyback on other services so the battery draw is minimal. Think about it this way 3g and 4g radio is the same radio so no additional battery draw there. Find my phone is using data gathered by location services when it is used by other programs so no additional battery dear there rather.
