Ok so then I guess im confused, if I have mobile data off I can still receive calls and regular texts because voice data would still be on correct? It would also save battery to keep it off if I have a solid Wifi connection? Thanks for your time answering these questions.

No offense meant and it may just be due to imprecise wording, but this is plain wrong.
Toggling data off forces a disconnect _from the data network_ but the phones remains attached to what ever cellular network it uses for voice and SMS so you can still make and receive voice calls and SMS. Anything data, on the other hand, will have to go through WiFi if available.

Anyone else having trouble with GPS?. Never ran into this problem before so not sure how to fix it. I flashed again as per OP's instructions but still not getting a GPS lock. I understand the first time takes a long time but I was outside for 3 hours trying to get a lock. Any help would be appreciated.

Download a GPS fix app on the market and try a couple to see if it'll find a lock.

Link not working... MediaFire must be having issues because the link for your 4.4 SlimFast is having the same problem. Hopefully it will be resolved soon! Thanks for the ROM in advance!

Edit: Never mind, worked fine through my phones browser. Must be an issue I'm having with the desktop !
