Just curious (not being sarcastic). Just wondering why this is such a big deal to everyone? What are people doing with this, that I'm not getting? I've never had a need to use this, so I'm not sure why everyone was disappointed it was gone and happy that it now is back. Is it because I live in an area with a strong 3G signal, and other people don't, so they need to toggle this for some reason?

Say for instance you're at a sporting event like an nfl game and you can't get a text or a call to go thru with all the bandwidth being eaten up on 3G.... Switch to 2G(EDGE) and you'll be good to go since everyone is on the 3G towers
But at the same time if you're only in a 2G area shut it off and it never searches for 3G conserving tons of battery

I have found 3G really sucks the life out of my battery (iP4s). On my iP4, I used to turn off 3G unless a really needed to do something quickly or what have you.
Believe me, that REALLY improved battery life.
I am usually connected via WiFi so the need to have 3G enabled for me is very low.
