Default select desired Network Mode 2G(gsm)/3G/4G

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?
Devices Wanted/Desired
Note 3; iPhone 5

iPad 3 64GB 3G AT&T; HTC Radar 4G; Note 2 (N7100);

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