    Ive never had this feature turned on my phones before. But let me tell you its awesome. Download speeds are faster then ever. From music to apps. I love my note 4 but now its a beast. Im using sprint and the download boost feature is worth unlocking. I used Nova launcher and then uninstalled it. I actually dont mind touchwiz.

    I believe you can get it on AT&T by installing a different launcher, go to a home screen and select add widgets, and you can select it. Something of that nature.

    Yep. All the other major carriers hide it from users.

    They mean when using apps so it will use mobile data and wifi.

    For example, when downloading a large app from the play store, you will get a pop-up telling you it's large and suggesting you download over wifi only. You uncheck that box.

    I already posted this a day to 2 ago but I did DL nova launcher and find and enable it.. but it did nothing but slow my wifi connection down. I get 22ish Mbps and cell should have giving me 12-1 more but I never went about the wifi and in most cases it started at 22 ish and dropped to 15.. did anyone really test it for AT&T?

    Let me go ahead and say that this is the single greatest discovery I have found for my device. I had an N3 for a year and just got the N4 last week. My home download speeds are 50 download and 5 upload (usually a little more) and have never gotten even close to that on my device. It was always about half that. I just dealt with it because it was still more than enough. After enabling the booster it was absolutely flying. Download speed was about 55. So satisfied right now.

    Thank you!

    I don't have a Sprint phone to look at myself. I'm basing this on your screenshots. You didn't show the screen it would be on. You stopped scrolling down too soon based on the screenshots you posted.
