2G / 3G Toggle
Just read the entire thread, I'm wowed by many ideas and how they were executed. As many, I just took the plunge to Tasker today and I can't seem to find a way to get Tasker to do what I originally bought it for: Toggle between 2G (EDGE) and 3G (UMTS/H+).
I want two profiles that will benefit from 2G toggling;
- connected to my home's WiFi network.
- low battery (many tweaks, among them going into 2G)
I tried setting up the profile to detected when I'm home:
New Profile "@Home" > Phone > Cell Near
New Task > "WiFi On" > Net > WiFi > On
"+" > Net > Mobile Data 2G/3G
but this last option has an *; "*Mobile Data 2G/3G" and Tasker says "Sorry, this action is unavailable on this device"
I have a Galaxy Note, recently updated to ICS with the Stock ROM, rooted and I've set Tasker as an Administrator. I have the latest version of Tasker from Google Play; 1.2.1u1m
Is there a work around? Do I need to purchase APNdroid, or is there a star-hash (*#) code I can dial to toggle between 2G and 3G?
So I found these codes in the Easter Egg thread
Went through them, and so far I've found these possible results:
#*2527# = GPRS switching set to (Class 4, 8, 9, 10)
#*3476# = EGSM Activate/Deactivate
#*3273# = EGPRS multislot. (Class 4, 8, 9, 10)
*#301279# HSDPA/HSUPA Control Menu
tried this last one and it didn't work.
