Battery drains so fast after OS 7.1.0.694

Gentlemen,
I upgraded my BlackBerry 9900 Bold to OS 7.1.0.694. After this update, the battery drains in a few hours. Before upgrading, Iused 2g network because the battery lasted longer. In this version can not switch networks, is always on 3G. The device heats a lot.
Any tips?

Tks a lot, however, after the upgrade, the option exchange network for 2g 3g disappeared. I went to option to choose the network manually, wait 100% load of networks, and after locating the network 2g, I can not select it.

 

Change your Network Settings to 2G:
Click on the Network Settings area on your home screen
Choose Networks and Connections > Mobile Network
Choose the dropdown box next to Network Mode and select 2G

it will depend on your Carrier on whether to provide 2G.
