TURNING OFF 4G

On the Droid Razr, is there a way of turning off the 4G signal and using the 3G for a while  and then going back to 4G.

My reason is I was told that the 4G signal eats a lot of battery so I was wondering when the 4G is not needed can the 3G be used?

Thank you

There is a 4g toggle app for the Razr.  Has anyone used this?  Does it work?

I haven't - but I'm using Smart Actions to auto-connect to my designated WLAN's and then disable the mobile network. Works great and has drastically improved battery life.
