I temporarily use *#*#4636#*#* to force my phone to EDGE/GSM only. I can get 4-5 days on the battery and can stay on top of my email/whatsapp with light data use that doesn't require high speed. It's great when I'm traveling/vacation. Problem is this setting doesn't stick. If I restart the phone, it switches back to 4g LTE and if I forget to toggle to 2G mode, it drains the battery.

Any permanent solution to address this?

Some roms have it baked into network settings where you can select the network type... only helps if your rooted though....
