That is nice.
Hmm, I should have done apt-get upgrade before writing the mail.
I think this belongs more to the area where you can select different gsm networks.
I guess such a function would be interesting for all mobile phones, not
only the GTA04. Replicant and Android also have such a switch.
Limiting to 2G not only good for workarounds but also for ordinary reasons.
One might sometimes limit to 2G for power consumption reasons or if there is only
expensive roaming.
