Turning off 3G

Question:

Q. How do I turn off 3G functionality in my UIQ 3 device? I'm sure all the searching for a 3G signal is hammering my battery life!

Answer:

A. There is a way to do this, but it's really hidden away! Go into 'Tools | Control panel | Connections | Mobile networks'. Tap on the top-of-screen menu and choose 'GSM/3G networks'. From the dialog that pops up, choose 'GSM only' and then see if it makes a difference to your battery life!

As far as turning off 3g goes, the only certain way to turn it off is airplane mode.

I've tried many different apps to try and turn it off, but they don't turn them off.

I'm new to the data plan and I plan on going to Canada in the spring, I wouldn't want any roaming charges. I don't even know how roaming charges really work to be honest....
