    Yes that's normal. But he always says 3G wastes money. I don't understand, never heard about that.

    Placebo, faster speeds make it seem your using more data, but if you have a data cap say 5gig plan it costs the same whether you use 10 Mb or 5gigs

    data speeds have no bearing on cost. but, i do not even plan on being online on my phone unless i am at home or at the office.

    as i said before, why would i use 3/4G on my phone when i do not need to be online? and where i am living, 2G is far more reliable than the other. i don't have a data plan with my operator because i do not need to have one. so my plan consists of only unlimited calls/texts to all networks.

    is it a requirement that i have to/need to be online all day before i use a phone like a 1520? or any other smartphones out there that has 3/4G in them?

    until such time that network coverage in my area has consistent and reliable 3/4G reception, im sticking with 2G. again, i only need to use voice and text functions

    Aha ok. Makes sense.
    But you know, switching to 2G doesn't turn off your mobile data, it's just slower!
    You have to turn that off separately

    how long can you make it on a charge

    Approximately I'm charging my phone every 5 to 7 hours.

    On my Lumia 925 I used to be able to choose between 2G, 3G and 4G. After upgrading to Windowsphone 8.1 thatb option is gone!
