How to fix the missing quick toggles on your Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge

How to fix the missing quick toggles on your Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge
Yesterday, we got hold of a news that the Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge have reportedly caught an irritating issue - it seems that due to a software bug, the quick toggles in the notification shade might randomly disappear.

In particular, it looks like the toggles for mobile data, private mode, and mobile hotspot features are among the most frequently affected ones.

The suspected culprit for this irritating issue could be the most recent software update for the glass/metal handsets, which brought Android 5.1.1 Lollipop to the mix.

Well, we are sure that Samsung will come with a fix soon (it was confirmed that the South Korea giant is already working on one), but until then, users will have to accept their faith and patiently wait for a fix.

But do they, actually? Of course not! As usual, developers have taken the matter in their own hands and we already have a temporary fix for the issue that will certainly do the job until Samsung comes up with a hotfix.

Here's how to fix the mobile data toggle on your Galaxy S6 and S6 edge - hey, we know that it's only one toggle, but it's something!

I've been reading on this, and wasn't the point of this to automatically make toggles go away if you don't use them for 30 days? And it's not like you are unable to manual do it in settings if you dont really make toggle those once every 30 days or less frequent. If that's so, that's a feature I would actually like to have. Imagine a Control Center that automatically modifies itself based on your habits. I'm all for removing clutter from UI, NOT adding and adding until you're looking at more than half of junk you are shuffling thru just to get to things you actually use... If it's a feature.. good for Samsung and users that would actually appreciate that kind of thinking...

Honestly, I didn't even realize the mobile data toggle was missing until I saw this article.

That's my point, you dont use it anyway if you didnt notice... Samsung should expand on this throughout UI, especially Bloatware among other things...

Peter, you're making it sound like when OEM's ave issues with their devices, they don't acknowledge or try to fix the issue. The greatest thing about operating systems like Windows and Android or even Linux, is 3rd parties can provide quick fixes because the OS' are more open. At least this isn't iOS or Mac OS X which is so closed you are FORCED to wait for them to fix it. The problem though is THERE IS NO BUG. Lollipop was designed to remove quick toggles you often don't use, at least that is what I've been reading. if this is true, then there should have been a way to reset them normally. Even if it is a feature, it is helpful but I also think its dumb. First off, all of the quick toggles aren't on the menu that scrolls on the screen. On most Android devices I have used, it is very quick and easy to directly edit the ones you always use. However, I also do use my Mobile data with my laptop and I usually tap on Verzion's Mobile Data icon out of habit. But the quick toggle on my device was totally gone. It wasn't even in the list of the items that weren't on the bar. This is actually a problem. if I had it on the bar, and I didnt use it and it simply returned to the repository, that would be great because I could put it back. But i couldn't even put it back because it is totally gone. Also, OEM's usually have much bigger things to deal with vs things that don't even totally interfere with who the phone works. Not having the quick toggles doesn't make the phone not work, so basically it isnt even a top level problem that needs immediate attention. Operating system have issues for the full life of their existence. Every problem doesn't get fixed, nor do all of them have too.

2 out of 3 worked for me here. At least until samsung fix this and not have a temporary work around that you may have to do each time to get you're toggles back. Fun.

Samsung released today an app to fix this problem. It's in Galaxy Apps and it's called "QuickPanel Restore". It restores all missing toggles.
