    Yes they both drain more. When I'm not goin to be using internet or downloading anything I switch to 2g. It makes a huge difference. I've been told rooting makes a huge difference and that there are apps that help with rooted phones even more.

    Well between 3G and WiFi, 3G will drain more battery than WiFi.

    I found this to be true as well.

    But not by near as large of a margin as the difference between wifi and 2g.

    I'm new to the whole smartphone experience; if I select "Use only 2G," how does that limit the phone's functionality? In other words, what can't I do using 2G that I could do by allowing 3G?

    Thanks.

    you can do, basically, everything you could do on 3G, just infinitely slower.
    you can't browse the web while on a call in 2G only, if i'm not mistaken.
