Samsung Galaxy W - how to turn off 3G

Is it possible to turn off the 3G (to save battery) on  Galaxy W?

 

Used to be a simple way with my old Galaxy Europa in mobile network settings to switch to 2G only, but not with this phone..

 

Cheers

If you go into the settings you should be able to turn it off through the packet data settings option.
