When my phone went in for repairs they upgraded my OS to 7.1 and now I cannot force change to 2G network mode.
I can only choose 3G or 3G and 2G. There is no option for plain 2G like the old OS had.
The reason I need to change to 2G is that the 3G coverage at home is not good at all and 2G is better, even though it's slow, it doesn't drop like 3G.
Is my only option to downgrade my OS?

Yes, that's the whole point of this topic. I HAVE to use 3G, I have no other option.
I want to have the option of changing to 2G when needed, because 2G doesn't drop all the time in my area like 3G does.

Im having the same problem on my 9900.
I dont want to use 3G the whole time, the battery life on BB's are already pathetic, now im being forced to use 3G
I updated my firmware to 7.1 because the phone kept lagging and freezing, now the battery doesnt last long enough for the phone to start lagging.
So what BB is saying... USE 3G or use old firmware. not cool guys.
Seriously not impressed with BB recently.
