Default [Q] Any way to shut 4G and stay on 3G

So I've been reading around but can't find or c anything, btw this is for a friends phone, not rooted, a T989 from T-Mo, the phone got updated and ever since the battery just dies fast, could anybody recommend a toggle or widget to shut or switch 3G/4G?

Thanks for any courteous help.

Default Disable 4g / DC

Hi, I'm pretty sure you want just to disable 4g and stay on 3g and not go to 2g as suggested...
I would be very happy to find a way to do it since my area doesn't have 4g (DC-dual channel) coverage (I'm not even on T-Mobile network) and it's draining my battery like crazy. unfortunately, couldn't find anyway to do it, tried to flush some different radio versions but since all the recent ROMs requires JellyBean radio this is not an option anymore.

If anyone knows how to disable DC and just stay on normal 3g and can help it will be awesome.
