    Does iOS 7 still allow the user to disable LTE, and to show the actual signal strength in dBm (thereby turning off those wretched dots)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you can disable LTE. (May I ask why?)

    No, there is no option to replace the dots with a dbm. (probably a jailbreak tweak)

    Kind of, using field test.

    Dial *3001#12345#* to enter it. It doesn't last very long though on the iOS7 GM.

    You can make it last like before by force quitting it.

    Excellent news. Thanks.

    For those situations where you are bouncing back and forth between LTE and 3g, thereby rapidly killing battery, and you are better off just forcing it to stick on 3g
