    Default How to disable CARRIER in 4.3.3
    I'm using my iPhone only for data (phone service sucked and people simply couldn't understand me--I've transferred my SIM to an old Motorola V330 (?) so I can actually have voice conversations.)

    I DO use my iPhone Wifi for email and GPS (I LOVE Endomondo when I walk). But the battery is gone in no time. It keeps on searching for "carrier" and I think that's what drains it.

    Is there any way to disable "carrier?"

    Hmmm. That could work overnight if I remembered to do it, but airplane mode gives me a basic brick. I use it for email and internet and tracking (I usually turn off location when I'm not tracking) so I'm looking for a more persistent fix.

    Simon, can you think of anything else? Is there any modification or app that will stop it from looking?

    Thanks!

    Thanks to both of you! I'm not positive today, that that saved the battery much, but at least it's all working!
