    Choose either 3g or 2g. The network its on DOES not affect battery life a significant amount. That is a misconceptions. What does affect battery life is searching for a signal. 2g and 3g mode swaps between the 2 unecesarily which causes battery life issues. If you have good 3g then choose that option. It will only drain your battery a significant amount if you have bag 3g connection and it keeps searching for a 3g signal. 2g is a safe bet if you do not have good 3g.

    100% correct, if you dont have a 3G signal around you theres no point in using it unless you NEED it as it will only drain your battery.
