    Title says it all—I'm looking for an easy way to toggle from LTE straight to Edge on my iPhone 5. NCSettings doesn't do this anymore, and never did it well. I tried Smart 3G + LTE, but it is having lots of errors, and it isn't actually a toggle—I don't need it automated, I'd like the ability to just control when I go to Edge and back myself.

    Anyone have something like this that they are using?

    do you have a 3G toggle in settings to disable it? At least with NCsettings it states in the description and recent changes that if your device does not have a 3G toggle by default NCsettings will not add one.

    You can use the 3G toggle in NCsettings to enable and disable LTE but that will just get you off of LTE and onto 3G/4G not onto edge

    Yes, I understand all of that. That's why I am looking for a toggle that will go from LTE/3G to Edge.

    If your carrier profile doesnt support it at least at this point it doesnt seem possible.


    why do you want to turn off LTE & 3G but keep edge on?

    I can only imagine the battery savings when not in use. But still being able to receive emails.

    Seeking LTE/Edge Toggle for Verizon iPhone 5

    My curiosity is when did Verizon get Edge? LTE, EV-DO, IS-95 and 1x I am familiar with, but was not aware that Verizon did GSM technology.
    For the OP,only way I know to disable LTE for sure is to go to settings->general->cellular and choose the "Turn off LTE" option.

    They didn't, EV-DO is their "edge", the OP is confused.

    While we're at it I'd also like an LTE toggle.
    Anything available yet for sbsettings?

    Yes, I'd like to do it to save battery, especially as most of the time I have WiFi.

    And yes—I used to be on AT&T, so I keep forgetting it's called EV-DO on the Verizon network. So technically I am looking for an LTE toggle that lets me go down to EVDO.

    And yes, I know the carrier profile doesn't want to allow it. But since we're jailbreaking here, I'm asking if anyone knows how to.

    ;) I figured that was what you were referring to, and were an ex AT&T customer. NCSettings is NOT reliable. Just got to playing with it, and turned it off and on 4 times in a row (it worked) and after the fourth one - the phone rebooted into safe mode. I don't think their is an "easy toggle" yet that works reliably.

    Do you have issues with the battery not lasting long enough on LTE or 3G? It seems like on my 5(ATT) when its connected to wifi it doesnt connect to LTE anyway just 3g/4g. Then once wifi is off it picks up LTE if its available.

    If you are only doing this when connected to wifi why not just turn cellular data off when connected and then back on when you leave wifi?

    check out batterydoctorpro: http://cydiaupdates.net/pkg/com.ijinshan.kbatterydoctorpro

    I haven't used it but it looks like it may or may not toggle 3g for you.

    NCsettings made the "3G" toggle LTE. I use NCsettings but not for LTE, i added it to test and it worked on my 5.

    Every couple days I look, but nothing for sbsettings. I thought this would have come out not long after the Evasion JB.

    Shouldnt be that hard to implement a switch for it.
    Ncsettings has it available.
