    Default Is there a way to put the mobile data toggle into the notification bar?

    I have a verizon note 2 and it has the mobile data toggle. My friend has the tmobile Note II and he didn't have the toggle. Is there any way to add it to the tmobile notification bar?

    Go to settings-> display-> notification panel and from there you can add the toggle for mobile data.

    I tried that, and didn't see that option in my friend's tmobile variant. It is running 4.1.2 if that makes any difference

    My phone is also running on 4.1.2 so that should not make any difference.

    I don't know why, but I looked in the display menu under notification bar, and it did allow customization, but did not have the option for mobile data toggle on the tmobile Note II. My Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II did have the toggle

    I think it's better if you download any mobile toggle widgets from play stoe.

    Notification toggle works, I just prefer a stock method to add it to the bar that's already there.

    Wouldn't the Wifi toggle do the same thing? Or are you trying to turn mobile data down from 4g to 2g?

    no, he's trying to just turn the mobile data (your carrier's network access) on/off. Wifi is there as an option the notification panel, but not mobile data.

    So then if he wants to turn mobile data off he should just use the airplane mode, right?

    Download Widgetsoid from the Play Store. This is exactly what you're looking for! As you can customize it to look exactly like the toggles in the notification bar!

    Sure, if you turn on Airplane Mode it'll turn all radios off, which includes cell reception and network data. Some people are on a restricted data plan, so the general rule of thumb is, if you're not browsing the intenet or using apps that require data, then you should turn your network data off, but you still would want your cell reception on to receive calls and text.

    So I think you're really confused. I'm not sure if you're just trolling us or really don't know what the difference between data accessed via wifi and data accessed via carrier network?

    If you use Airplane mode, you won't receive texts or phone calls. I just toggle mobile networks and wifi off, but leave the cell radio on so I can receive calls and texts during the night or whatever. Depends on what is important to you. I need to be able to receive texts from family so I leave the cell radio on at all times.

    Hope this helps.

    Not trolling. Just asking questions. Yes, I know the difference. It just didn't click that the op needed to turn off mobile data and still use the cell.

    this is old yes...but still gay...tmo does not have the lte toggle off? MIne don'e either! lame! i appreicate the widget and am looking into that as we I type (like the install from computer play options) but I had a new thought....Does turning data on and off frequently affect battery life as if having a low signal? It seems to me it would becaue it would be searching every timeI turn it back on. Which I can do several times. Its like pick the phone up turn it on...et it down turn it off...IDK
    Merry christmas!

    The sprint note 2 didn't have it either. My tmobile note 2 doesn't have it either. Only way I had it on my note 2 is by installing a rom that put it in there.

    Which rom might put it there? Can't I just edit my stock rom somehow to put it there?

    Only thing I can find is go to widgets, choose the "settings" widget and then choose "data". It will put a data "button"on your homescreen that will open the data page and you can uncheck the allow data.
