Iphone4 - turn off 3G??

The only way i can seem to get my phone to work is when im not on 3G in my house. Everywhere else throughout town the phone works great. I never experienced these issues with my 3GS so i know its not signal issues where i live... How can i turn off 3G to just run Edge??

Go Setting, General then Network. You'll find "Enable 3G" option. Turn that off and you can force the phone to edge only mode.

Got a shiny new iPhone 4 and want to turn 3G off and just use normal UK cellular data. I go in to Settings > General > Network, as I did on my old iPhone but there is no option to turn of 3G??? All I have done today is send a couple of texts and I am down to 87% already!! Am I missing something?

I'm gonna guess you are on 3 Mobile, because their whole network is purely 3G that is the reason you can't turn it off, and you wouldn't want to turn it off as if forced it to only use 2G then they would disconnect you as it is breaking their T&Cs
