    No 2G/3G setting on my 4S, but my Carrier is 3G/4G only.

    Yes, the option is there in iOS 8.1 for 2g/3g/lte. Just finished downloading. Actually i updated only cos of this feature. Used it heavily with iOS 7 when connectivity was poor and staying on 3g drained the battery; switching to 2g is the way to go in such situations.
    Cheers!

    Yea I'm not sure why there is even an option. It seems redundant to use a old slow tech that's going to be done away with at some point.

    Yup but where I work it would help save battery due to bad service.

    Understood. There's a office here at my work that only picks up 1x and sometimes not even that depending on how the universe is expanding.

    Telfort in the Netherlands, don't have that option either, my carrier still supports 2G, could choose for it on my old android phone.

    AT&T here. The only option that I see is LTE on/off. No setting for 2G/3G/4G.

    He must have had a typo. There is not difference between "4G" and LTE on verizon. AT&T considers there HSPA 4G.

    No such setting on TMO in USA. Wish there was like on my BlackBerry (so many features I say that for).

    Would really help in low signal areas where I just need to get emails without having my battery drain.

    Yes indeed man. I've seen in other places people saying it may come via carrier update but we'll just have to play the waiting game.

    If it comes by a Carrier update I'll be waiting forever then, since my Carrier 3 UK hasn't pushed out a Carrier update since iOS 7.1.2.
