Posted by on

  • janaspray Feb 16, 2009

    How do I disable 3g on Samsung Propel? I tried the following:

    1. type in: *#6984125*#
    2. go to the third one called network and call settings
    3. select network mode
    4. select one of the gsm bands, (suggest using gsm 850/900/1800/1900)
    that should force your phone into using the 2g network

    #3 the Network Mode is disable on my phone. I can not select this. How do I get around this?

In the NEWORK menu, change the network mode to either of the following:-

GSM 900/1800: the phone operates in the
combined GSM 900/1800 network.

GSM 1900: the phone operates in the GSM
1900 network. This option is only available in
USA.

This should turn of 3G functionality but expect that you will have less reception too

refer to the manual page 73 which can be d/l HERE

Even i face the same issue.. The battery starts discharging as soon as the phone is removed from charging Looses charge by 22% within 15 minutes..


you have a bad battery. the best solution is to replace the battery.
to extend the battery life you can close background applications and turn of the screen, in this case that most lightly wont help a lit though.

When i dont wanna use the Internet, samsung Omnia continually connect to 3G so that my balance amount reduces too. Do u know how to disconnect to 3G


I have an LG VU with a sinilar problem, however I was able to search the internet to find a code to swtch back and forth between 2G or 3G. Simply having your phone on 3G means it is constantly searching for 3G signal, even if you are not actually on the internet, and therefore you battery life is considerably shorter than if you leave it on 2G. However, if you are in a large urban centre the 3G will probably be readily available, so the searching will be minimized. Your account balance will not be affected unless you actually log on to the internet using the 3G. Try searching the internet for a code which enables you to turn off the 3G for your Omnia.

Nokia e71 Battery life


The battery drains so quickly because it maintains a constant connection to the network via a data uplink and downlink.Meaning its like continously talking on ur mobile phone. With Push email, the device is constantly connecting to the network which means its downloading data (which is ur email) on a regualr basis. And thus is draining the battery faster.
Put it to the test!!! turn ur push email off and you will find that the battery will last for 3 days

The best solution is to buy an extra battery and keep it handy in your car.

Cheers

P.S. The battery that comes with the E71 is 1100 mAH .. right ?
