    My mom just got the Note 2, and I'm trying to "dumb it down" for her (there's so much going on that it's just sensory overload). For starters, I'd like to trim down the toggles in the notifications bar--she only needs the basics, she doesn't need bluetooth/allcast/powersaving/airplane mode/etc. Is there any way to remove select toggles?

    Settings >> Display >> Notification panel

    That will allow you to configure the notification panel and remove unwanted toggles (and add a few extra).

    As S T Hye has shown, it is available on the Note 2,but from the looks of things this may vary from carrier to carrier.

    No idea why a carrier would remove this feature. :/

    For those who have that option, what carrier are you using? I'm on Verizon and unfortunately don't have those options . How ungodly annoying on their part, why limit customization?

    Wonder if it's all US carriers? I'm on Rogers in Canada and they haven't removed it at all.

    As for alternatives, I believe the only alternative at this point would be root and install a custom ROM. CleanROM would give you access to this setting, but it's a lot just for one setting.

    The feature to add/remove these toggles, came when JB 4.1.2 was pushed to the Note II.
    It still may be carrier dependent on whether they all wanted this feature to be available.
    I'm with Rogers and fortunate to get this feature, since the latest OS was pushed out.

    Would going into system settings > home screen mode > easy mode, help with some of the sensory overload?
