I had the same problem while I was on stock AT&T 01.77.15P radio but ever since I "upgraded" to 1.8.7 (HSUPA hack) I can now switch network types and they stick.

However I'm attaining much lower speeds with such "hack".

I've been playing around with network types but so far I've seen no difference in speed.

Cheers!
