Why does the data button in the notification panel disappear when I update my Samsung Galaxy S4 to Android 4.3? This is very inconvenient.

I'd contact samsung directly and let them know this update was just released today.

If you need a quick way to monitor and one-touch switch data on/off a highly recommended app/widget on this forum and myself is 3G watchdog. It is not resource intensive either.

Or you could download the Power Toggles app/widget for that also. Customizable widget for any toggles you may need!

I've used this widget on the last three Android phones and I love it.

You should be able to edit which toggles show up in that area, can't you? Or is the toggle no longer offered at all? If so, then the previous pots will give you alternatives. I use power toggles on the Moto G and it works great.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've installed Power Toggles and it works fine. Still odd that Samsung/Koodo/Android killed the original data switch.

Just to be clear. Koodo has nothing to do with the OS upgrades.

I don't even have a Data toggle on my S2X like my wife does on her S4, so I use Power Toggles instead. Great to use becuase I can use it to turn on the camera flash as a flashlight
