A lot of times I only need the Charge's LTE connection. VOIP for calls, Whatsapp for SMS. Often I only use it as a web browser.

LTE is a huge battery drain because the radio requires its own special chip that runs alongside the 2G/3G chip. Could someone possibly add the option to disable all but the LTE radio in a custom ROM?

Samsung didn't put that in there... I'm pretty sure we would need a sourced RIL in order to disable certain stuff.

It seems like a lot of work's being done by jt on the ICS ROM, including the RILs, so maybe he could find a way to enable that feature? It would make the Charge *so* much more useful, as even with an extended battery the thing doesn't last that long on LTE.
