Default 4.4.2 4G on by default, no GSM only option?

Only noticed this recently, where did the option to have GSM only in mobile network settings go? And why is 4G on by default? If I select wcdma only or wcdma/GSM when I next reboot my phone, it reverts back to 4G preferred. Is there a way to get this back? Or at least to not have 4G preferred? I don't have a 4G sim, so there's no need to have it on, I don't know if it effects battery life, but I'd assume it would?

I don't think so, but at least you can set it in service menu
