    Hello everyone, I am expecting an iphone 5 today, I was wondering if someone lucky enough to have taken delivery of a phone can let me know if there is a way to toggle between 3G & 4G, I liked this feature on my android phones because it saved a huge amount of battery power. I would turn on 4G when I planned to DL a lot of content.

    Thanks for you input.

    There is an option to switch off 4G/LTE (UK factory unlocked).

    Unfortunately though, upgrading from iPhone 4, there is no option to switch off 3G altogether and use edge only like before. And that's a huge disappointment because the signal is extremely weak in my area and 3G drains the battery in no time. I used to get 1 bar with 3G, full bars on edge with iPhone 4. It's 1~2 bars with iPhone 5 now. Meh.
