    I would prefer to see if you were able to:

    Go to Options and Status»Network and Connections»Mobile Network then scroll to Network Mode, you may see 2G, 3G,2G/3G,4G (H+)

    Change your network mode accordingly, and your issue should be solved.

    A change in OS downgrade may not necessarily be beneficial to you.

    Keep us posted ok

    Thanks grimreaper. That is exactly my problem - the only option is 4G. Do you have any idea what is causing that? A conflict between my carrier and 7.1?

    So I did downgrade the OS and it did improve the battery life, as I use 2G unless I am downloading. But it's disappointing, as 7.1 is such a good OS.

    arnie,

    This issue has been discussed a lot on other sites - 7.1 DOES have the 2G/3G and 4G switching capability - however, depending on your carrier, this function may be blocked. In the US, people on T-Mobile (with 9810) have the capability - people like me on AT&T do not have the function. Apparently Vodacom has the same policy.

    I have confirmed, however, that even though you can not manually switch to 4G, if you are in a very weak signal area, or in an area that does not support "4G", the device will switch to EDGE and remain there until the signal/spectrum situation changes and it can then switch back to 4G.

    Not exactly as good as us being able to choose ourselves, but at least better than nothing.

    I hope this helps answer your questions
