Thread: auto disable 3g

  1. #1
    Default auto disable 3g
    Is there an app to automatically disable my 3g data connection when I connect to a wifi network and vise versa?

    The only one I know about is called Auto3G

    It only turns off your 3G when you lock your phone to save battery life and then turns it back on when you unlock your phone. I think an app that does what your asking would be really popular. I know it's easy using sbsettings, but I'm a lazy person and having it be automatic would be wicked cool!

    When you connect to Wifi that overrides the 3G so not sure if its really worth it. I know it will save battery but for the connection its already done.

    Being connected to a 2G network + Wifi would lead to better battery life than being connected to a 3G network + wifi.

    I think Auto3G should include this in an update.

    Has anyone tried the auto3g? Does it work as expected? Does it save battery life? Any bugs/quirks?

    Install "Sbsettings" (so you can turn on/off 3G) + "FakeAPN (you can't surf on 3G while its turned ON)
