Simple tweak adds an EDGE/3G/4G toggle to the Lumia 900
Sometimes there are situations where it would be best to slow down your data connection in order to add some additional battery life to your device. The folks over at Mobility Digest discovered a tweak that gives you the ability to choose between EDGE, 3G, or 4G data connectivity on your device – best of all, the features is already on your phone, it’s just hidden.

There are a few codes that launch diagnostic apps and utilities on the Lumia 900. Apparently if you type in ##3282# it opens the Data Field Test utility. One that pops up, pressing the 3 at the bottom of the screen will allow you to tap and open up a Settings screen.

Under settings, change the “Network type” from 2G or 3G only to Automatic. Tap the back button to go back one screen then select the last option, which is labeled “Toggle ENS (REBOOT).” Click “Start” and then, after a few seconds, click “Stop.” At this point the phone will reboot.

After the reboot, when you go into Settings and then Cellular, you will have the ability to set your highest connection speed to Edge, 3G, or 4G.

Why don't manufacturers put that on as default? If you're in a 3g only area, why wouldn't you want to shut off the LTE radio to save power. My thunderbolt didn't have this on release either, and its just silly - especially since LTE is so limited in area right now.

Believe me or not Windows Phone 7 is a nice OS. Just needs a bit more developer attention and then just wait and watch that what is is gonna do. I am really in love with those fluid navigation animations in the whole interface. The most fluid interface i have ever used, even the IOS feels a little (only a little) bad than Microsoft in terms of the User Interface, of course it is super smooth and is very fluid but the WIndows Phone is something like Magic, on which android doesn't really comes close. Elegant look, the best experience i have ever had

Really nice OS, but needs so much more developer love, and so much more hardware love. I don't care what you say, more power is always a good thing. I want to see S4 LTE phones, truly at a glance information with much more dynamic tiles and notification management.

hey windows phone runs super smoothly with a single core processors and what else you want?? single core gives smoothness and quad core would also give the same smoothness the only thing quad cores or a dual core krait processors help is in the benchmarks part only and yeah.. single core processors are way more than power efficient than the quad core or the dual core ones so according to me windows phone does not need that much power it is the smoothness for what we all care about. that's all
