    Aloha everybody,
    I've read on here somewhere that 3G data can't be turned off on either iOS 5 or the iPhone 4S. I beg to differ with that. Take a look at the attached screenshot and tell me if what I'm seeing is not what you're seeing. This has been the same for the last couple of software updates, IIRC. I really don't understand, but maybe I misunderstood the original comments. I got there by going to Settings -> General -> Network

    "Cellular Data" includes 2G, 3G, 4G, whatever gee you want to call it.

    If I'm correct, the separate 3G toggle only turned off 3G, but still allowed 2G. As has also been pointed out, that has changed to restricting all cellular data, 3G and below, so that WiFi is the only option. Thanks for the screenshot - I forgot about that toggle switch.

    yes

    yes, that is how it worked. It was a good trick for places like stadiums and such which could get their 3G networks overloaded during peak times. Too bad it is missing.
