I like to control my data manually and this update made it more tideous to turn it off.
Having the ability to turn off your data whenever by simply swiping down and pressing
an icon was too much of a convenience, which meant fewer people going over their limit,
thus less revenue for ATT.
By removing the icon and forcing the user to make a few more steps to turn off their data,
ATT hopes some customers might just leave it on.
However, you can set your data limit and warning in the mobile data settings and even
limit it to some applications. That may be good enough for some users, but I still prefer
to turn it on and off manually.
Apps such as Power Widget and Mobile Data Switch does not work. The former crashes,
and the latter turns it on but not off.
It's a subtle change that most people might overlook and that's exactly what ATT hopes.
