Droid Update - only 4g now?

Since the update, I have not been able to switch to 3g. The 4g in this area is inconsistent so I am constantly loosing the signal.  4g sucks the life out of the battery.  Settings menu doesn't let me switch to 3g only like I used to.  What happened?  Is there another trick to getting to 3g only?

There's an app in the Google Play store that gives you the option of 3G-only (and lots of other weird options): LTE OnOff.  It works fine on the Bionic even though its full name has "HTC Thunderbolt".

And there's already a thread about this here.

Excellant app. It is the only one of these that I have found to work on the Bionic after ICS.

Thank-you.  It really helped getting the directions on how to use that app.  Very confusing for the novice.
