Questions and Answers

Is there a way to turn my mobile data on/off from the notification bar?

Previously on Android 4.2 I had the option, on my Galaxy S4, to turn the mobile data on/off with the quick setting buttons. Ever since Android 4.3, I have noticed that this button is missing. I hate having to close what I'm doing, just to turn my mobile data on/off because I prefer to conserve my data.

Unfortunately, Samsung removed the Mobile Data quick setting and there is no way to add it back. The easiest way to quickly turn off and on your mobile data is to download this widget and put it on your home screen. You will still have to press your home button to get back to your home screen to turn it off, but it will be much quicker than going into your Settings application to turn it off.

What's the fastest, simplest way to see if data is turned on - Samsung Galaxy S4?

I see WiFi, blue tooth, and all the other icons on the notification screen, but nothing that says "data". What tells you unequivocally that cellular data is on or off?

When you draw down your notification panel, there is a little icon with little squares on the far right top corner, tap on it, then a complete set of top icons will show, tap on the small pen, on the top, and then you can arrange those, look for "Mobile Data", long press on it, and then you can drag it to the top row, where it will show when you draw your notification once again.

Can't find saved quick access tabs on S4 via Google?

I am not talking about bookmarks but I think they're called quick access tabs, and I am not referring to the panel of icons that you pull down from the top of the screen.
