    Default Mobile Data button disappeared with latest 4.1.1. update

    I used to always use the pull down bar and select mobile data, allowing me to conveniently sturn it on or off to save data. However, after updating my S3 the button disappeared. How do I put that button back in place?

    It was removed from "quick links" in the notification bar, so you have to go to <settings>, <data usage>, and uncheck "mobile data". You can access settings from the "gear" icon in the notification bar.
    If at first you don't succeed, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!

    Go to settings > more settongs > mobile networks and uncheck mobile data.

    There is an app called Power Toggles. It will allow you to put it back, but not in the same place. You can either put it on your home screen or in your notification bar.

    Here's a pic of what it looks like:

    No problem. You're welcome.

    I like to think that the mobile data toggle being removed was one of the best things that could've happened because it forced me to find an alternative. Power Toggles was a lifesaver because I'm a hawk when it comes to my data. Plus it's nice having other toggles right there on the home screen.

    The easiest way to enable Mobile Data toggle is to use SQL editor and edit a line takes a few seconds and requires root

    I cannot figure out how to get the button back either. it's not very convenient now. I don't want to push that many buttons especially if I'm in a hurry to turn data off cause something is eating away at it...like too many emails coming in and such.

    Another option--use Widgetsoid to add a 2nd bar.

    An obvious money grab. Make it less convenient to switch off = more data usage = mo' money.

    Found a solution for the missing Mobile Data button, at least on Verizon Galaxy S3. Instead of the Gear icon, choose the one next to it (three squares and a double arrow - don't know what it is called!). That lists the possible items for the Notification bar at the top. You can click and hold any one of the items shown, and then drag it where you want it. Just do that with "Mobile Data", and drag it up to the first line, and then it should appear. You can also pick other things to appear, and change the order, if you want.

    I loved this convenient button and I agree this was only done to make it harder to turn off Mobile Data so the phone companies can squeeze us for every penny.
    Shame on Android, Shame!
    I hate it when i upgrade and something I really like disappears for NO good reason.

    BTW there is not an option to add it like a previous poster said. This button is not even in the options after you upgrade.

    I'm going to try the power toggles app, Thanks
