Re: how to deselect 3G and keeping the smartphone connected to the network,

On your Manage Connections screen > Mobile Network > check your Network Mode or Network Technology button, and select 2G only. Or if you want, turn off the mobile network completely when you want to use WiFi for data only.

Re: how to deselect 3G and keeping the smartphone connected to the network,

Thanks, 2G&3G consume same battery amount; so how to make the device only connected just 4 Line calls without 3G or 2G. The mentioned feature should be available as an option (Wifi 4 data, mobile 4 calls) finally how shall I solve the mentioned issue?

By the way, does switching the option 'Data Services' to OFF make the device connected to Line calls without 3G benefit to data, (you will understand my Full meaning question after reviewing my 1st last reply to urs). Regards..

Yes, switching Data to off will "make the device connected to Line calls without 3G benefit to data," and allow you to still be connected to your mobile network for voice and SMS.

Re: how to deselect 3G and keeping the smartphone connected to the network,

Would you please clearly state what your need is? I know there could be some language barrier here and I really have no clue now what it is you're attempting to achieve.
