This has frustrated me to no end. Does anybody know if there is an app that will switch from HSPDA to 2g? Preferably one I can set to a schedule? The WiFi calling app is the only one that seems to do this flawlessly, however it requires a WiFi connection.

When I am at work I do not use my phone for anything except phone calls and my calendar, so I do not have any need for 4 or even 3g coverage... And my phone just drains battery trying to establish these connections.

I've tried using APNdroid but it just force closes my phone process.

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. I'm running elite sense 2.6 if that matters at all.

It would be great if there is some app to schedule 2g/3g.

Why not just do it manually? If not then maybe Locale? It's $10 but it may do what you are looking for.

I use a Juicedefender/tasker combo to Control the 3g. I had to ROOT and flash CM to get it do it, but its made my life easier since I never remembered to turn 3g off when I went to work.

*EDIT: though it should be noted that the AOSP Helper that Juicedefender uses to toggle 3g doesn't seem to work on Cm7.03

Hi williecat316,

I just have installed Tasker and I would like to do the same kind of combo as you did with Juice Defender and Tasker. E.g. when I unlock the phone, stay in 2g, but use Juice Defender to start 3g if I am away from any known wifi spot AND if I launch lets say the browser or any connected app. Could you give more details about the way you configured Tasker on your phone?

Thanks

P.S. the 3G/2g swithing through Juice Defender works perfectly on my phone (via AOSP Helper of course) but I'd like to fine tune the way it switches between 2g and 3g thanks to Tasker.
