GS5 Features Removed

It it true that AT&T has removed several of the GS5's built in features like Download booster, Kids mode? How about the new security features like Find My Mobile and reactivation lock and whatever else? Are those gone as well?

Hello, everyone!

 

We are evaluating Samsung’s Download Booster Feature. We thoroughly test new software, features and functionality to ensure that it meets our standards for a quality user experience.

Welcome to our world ATT disabled DataSense in WP8 and won't even give us a reason. Total silence on the matter.

Hi dickeymo69

 

The kids mode is still in your phone. I hastn't been removed by AT&T. In your home screen or any screen that has a free space select until a sub menu appears, select "widgets". Look for the "Kids Mode" widged. Select it and will install the shortcut in your screen. Tap on the icon and it will require you to download the full specs of the app (yes, it downloads the full, for if you dont need it, it doesnt accumulate space in your internal space).

 

The Find My mobile is still active in your phone. Here is the link to search for it:

Cheers

I wish AT&T did not remove Samsung Car Mode either.  It is a great feature and very easy to use.
