    any way to turn off mobile data to conserve battery life besides settings/more networks/mobile networks/mobile data? And no, not airplane mode, I still want SMS and calling.

    like a widget or something? there was always one with HTC sense.

    Thanks!

    I cannot find a way yet either. Where i live our LTE network has become slow and overloaded so when i did have my other phone (ahem, read iPhone) i could easily toggle back to the 4G network and still get 9 down 4 up.

    Found a widget, but it should be in the quick settings tray above.

    Drag down from top with two fingers, then toggle Mobile Data.

    I toggle location off and on. If I toggle it off, I can go 12 hours and still be in the 90% range on my battery.

    I'm assuming, the only way to not use 4G is to turn the WIFI ON. I also disable using 4G and WIFI together for faster downloads.

    Not entirely no.

    What are you trying to achieve exactly?

    Can't you add it to your quick settings? In settings press 3 dots. Edit quick settings. You may have to remove one to be able to add it.
    Hope that helps.

    It is not a choice to add on mine, what carrier are you on? I have empty spaces to add, but mobile data/ network, or lte / 3g , are not choices. I'm only able to get there in settings. Hopefully you find an app to help you.

    As. I said before , not an option to add to notification bar on my s5 att. So I downloaded Data on/off from Play Store and have it on my home screen. It's convenient, but it's a shame a phone of this caliber it doesnt come on all carriers in notification bar.

    Maybe when you get root for AT&T you will be able to add that button. I think they are just disabled / hidden.

    Works like a charm. Simple one tap "on/off" for mobile data.

    Hope this helps.

    There is an easy way to have access to turning ON/OFF the Data, WiFi connections.

    I use it on a daily basis to stop all background traffic when I'm not using the phone or asleep and don't need it anyway.

    Battery Doctor's Widgets provide a popup window that will allow you to toggle, DATA, SYNC, GPS, BLUETOOTH, WIFI, and more in one place. Very handy.

    Using that widget is allowing my battery to go 3 or more days between charges and still make calls and text messaging. When I need those features I just toggle them ON.

    Battery Doctor => https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tterydoctor_en

    Be sure you go through all the Settings Menus and Whitelist anything you don't want turned off. Especially the one that will change your Display Timeout, it defaults to 30 seconds, I personally prefer 10 minutes and programmed the Power Button for Instant OFF timeout.

    Yes. You can use the "Mobile Data" button in the quick settings. Swipe down from the top and look for the Mobile Data button. If you don't see it click the edit (pencil) icon. This will expand the list. If you want it at the top so you don't have to expand the list each time just hold down on the icon and then drag it to the top row. Now you can just click that button to turn your mobile data on and off.

    *#*#4636#*#* on your phone dialer.

    That gets you into a special menu.

    Go to device information, and the first drop down menu is to select a network. For AT&T, choose GSM Auto to switch off LTE. Remember the setting it was on, because that's the one you need to choose to bring LTE back. Or, reboot the phone to bring it back.

    That sounds like as much trouble as going into setting. ☺
    Wish there was an option in quick menu.
