So the S3 comes with the 'mobile data switch' removed...

I understand that this is probably a safeguard to make sure your device works optimally, since you cannot make/receive calls or texts with freedompop without it. HOWEVER, there are situations where I would like to only connect to wifi. Why? If I'm in an area with poor signal (3g instead of 4gLTE), the battery gets drained in no time. Anyone know a remedy?

    I wonder if wifi takes more battery then a good 4g signal? hmm.

    When I use the DU battery saver to check my battery draw, it looks like wifi takes less then callular. i need to test further.

    turn on airplane mode, then reenable wifi. this will do what you want.
