    I have T-Mobile and recently was traveling in WV where apparently there is no coverage. I was shocked to find that I'd used up all my "roaming data allowance" when I had not done anything with the phone the entire 4 hours driving. Apparently various things like my mail were constantly checking in. But I cannot find any way to turn off mobile data! When I'm home my wifi picks up automatically but away from wifi it uses data constantly. My old Samsung s3 mini had a data on/off toggle. I can't find that on the Note 4.

    Actually, that may be carrier specific. On my T-Mobile Note 4, that is not an option and it is not available in the available buttons section either.

    Does it mean that when you open the notification panel the option to choose data is not available fit T-Mobile branded note 4?

    something like this

    Just checking, but did you try scrolling that screen up for the rest of the available buttons?

    AT&T and T-Mobile version doesn't have this option. Only under settings. Only Verizon models have this option, maybe Sprint too.

    Thanks - seems very calculated to force you to use your data up! I don't pay for a lot of data b/c I try to do most things over wifi, but last month I ran out due to some accidental extra usage, and then having used "roaming data" without even intending to, irritated me.
    At least now I can find it in settings.

    Oh it gets better. Lollipop broke the ability to get an aftermarket data toggle widget. They now take you to that settings instead of toggling the data network.
    When I had to travel through that godforsaken part of the world in an emergency I got a text "you have used 9.5MB of your 10MB roaming data allowance" and hadn't used my phone at all. Since there was only AT&T through most of my travel (wife had 0 signal with Verizon, nobody to roam on ) and I was roaming on it I switched to AT&T when I got home. I travel other areas that T-Mobile didn't cover so it wasn't just over that but it was the last straw.

    I agree. It's definitely calculated, cheesy, greedy, obvious, and makes me hate ATT again. Why remove the Mobile Data on/off switch on the quick settings... except if you want people to drain their data plans and have to pay for more data? I'm always on the move and use my laptop often at coffee shops. On the Note 2 I'd hit the switch and turn off data so I didn't drop mobile data on random app updates, notifications, etc. Now you have to dig down through 5 menus (questionably relevant menus btw) to turn of data. Reallllly irritating.

    I'm sure it's worth it monetarily to them to pull this crap, despite the ill-will it creates.

    It's not looking to good for Microsoft's Nokia phones...

    Microsoft laying off 7,800 employees...
    "The firings, which will eliminate about 7 percent of the company’s workforce, are concentrated in Microsoft’s troubled mobile phone business, and will eliminate most of the remaining employees from its purchase of Nokia’s phone operation in 2013. "

    It would have been good for competition to have another strong (25%+ market share) player in the mobile space. Microsoft has been struggling to keep the 2%+ share as it is.
