    I live in an AT&T dead zone but am surrounded by LTE. My iPhone 5 battery is running down much quicker than my iPhone 4 did. I think this is because it is trying to hold onto a 4G signal which it barely obtains. Field test mode on the iPhone 5 confirms a weak 4G signal. I want to disable 3G and 4G on the iPhone 5 while I am home as I did with my iPhone 4, but it seems Apple has removed the Enable 3G slider in the final iOS 6 release. It is replaced by an Enable LTE switch which only drops it down to 4G. Am I missing something?

    Still there on my iPhone 4. Must be model specific

    No. They dropped the 2G/3G toggle from the 4S last year. Note that AT&T is going to be decommissioning its 2G network over the coming years and re-farming that spectrum to make room for LTE.

    No you are not. That switch vanished as of the 4S.
