    Default mobile data toggle, where is it.

    I have sprint note 2.. but can't find a way to enable the mobile data toggle icon. I have seen it in many other screen shots from other devices. Is it a Sprint issue?

    it is a note 2 issue from what I have seen. Other devices have it (SGS3) but it is not stock with the note.

    there are a bunch in the market that should do the trick

    From any screen pull down with one finger from the top to get your normal toggles (wifi, gps, sound, screen rotation, bluetooth) and notifications

    From there instead of tapping one of the above swipe the toggles from right to left to reveal the rest (mobile data, blocking mode, power savings, allshare cast, sync)

    It is subtle so that you may not notice it but when you pull down the notifications the toggles show you the extra toggles for an instant and then scroll to the left, hinting at more hiding to the right. If you pull down notifications and stop mid way without letting go you can see this.

    This on the international N7100, should be same on all I would think.

    Yeah mobile data is missing on the US Carrier based units for what I've seen so far.

    Nope, the us versions have just five or six across the top, no swipe to see more

    My VZ N2 has them available for scrolling. And the Data Toggle is indeed there.

    From the carriers: mobile data option has been removed so you will use more data which we can charge you for. Thank you for buying a "customized" and subsidized phone.

    What about from the system settings?
    On the Galaxy S3 -
    Menu-Data-Mobile data check box

    Not on the ATT Note 2 there either?

    Sprint toggles include wifi, blue tooth, gps, sync, screen rotation. You swipe the bar to the left, and you see... vibrate, power saving, driving, allshare, multiwindow.

    So strange there is no widgetshortcut either.

    On my HTC Evo LTC, there are widget shortcuts for Mobile Data as well.

    Now, I found an app Power Toggle, which I like.

    Kind of funny that carriers will remove such an important part of phone function.

    Thanks for all who commented.

    Ok, thanks. Strange some of the things missing from the ATT Note 2. This and the photo editor issue. Especially when my Galaxy S3 has both..

    Plan to get the Note II soon, so at least glad the option is there somewhere.

    I wish they would have made it possible to set the toggles to what you need instead of things I don't need.

    That is one of the joys of custom ROMs but I get where you are coming from.

    I have to say that I am very surprised that they changed TW around as much as they did for any carrier. My SGS3 has blocking mode right there in the settings menu.

    The Note 2 is the first Android device I haven't rooted and installed custom a ROM on, I keep telling myself I'm not going to do it, but not sure how long that's going to last.

    I'm on Sprint and I don't have Mobile Data as an option for the notification panel. I created a shortcut on the desktop instead.
