Default Auto switching to 2G from 2G/3G with WiFi app?

Please Login to Remove!

There are several apps that offer switching of WiFi status based on cell location of use of Bluetooth (all to save battery). Examples are:

AutoWiFi
Smart WiFi
WiFi Comrade
OffAlready
WiFi Manager

Anyone know any apps that will do the same for 2G/3G (forcing it to 2G only mode) when WiFi is connected/available based on cell location?

Zona3G does the 2G/3G flipping, but not based on cell location and doesn't flip the WiFi on an off too.

Maybe one of the developers of one of he above can comment here? It would support the usage model of:

- When on WiFi, I don't need the speed of 3G, so 2G-only saves a lot of power and I can still make/receive calls
- Making it cell based, means switching can be automatic
- I would want to wind up being able to select the combination of WiFi, 3G (and maybe Bluetooth too) all based on my location (or unknown location/travelling)
