This switch is usually present in the General settings menu under the Network settings. By using this switch one can toggle between using the 3G service or not. The website contacted Apple support regarding the matter and they had no response on the issue. The need for this switch is not really required but by turning the switch on, one can access faster browsing speeds along with greater battery consumption. The site states that Verizon users are saying that this feature was not available on the iPhone 4 as well. This indicates that this is probably a carrier specific absence and may not be present through all carriers.

This looks like the only noticeable difference between what is lacking in the iPhone 4S as compared to the iPhone 4. Let us know your reactions on the fastest phone right now not having this basic feature incorporated in its feature list.
