3G setting uses more battery power, so presumably with a device which so
badly compromised on battery life, it's to enable you to turn it off if
you don't need it, to maximise time between charges. If I'm out and
about away from a charger and running out of juice, I tend to to do it
myself (along with turning off mobile data, bluetooth, wifi etc).

Sounds very odd - if data is off and you're not making calls or texts,
then it shouldn't be using any credit. Have you checked the "Usage"
menu option to see how many Mb are being up/downloaded? Can you get
itemised bills to see what you're being charged for?
