If you toggle data on and then off, a notification appears saying
"You will no longer be able to use applications such as Internet, Email, or other apps that require a network connection, unless you connect to wifi etc."
The message however remains there even with Wifi on.

There is no option to clear the notification and then an Icon appears in the top left hand corner reminding you of the fact.
That top left corner of the screen is usually used for many other temporary notifications which can now no longer be displayed.
If the phone is started with data off then everything works as it did with Android 6 until data is toggled again.

Anyone know how to get rid of this notification?

I actually have found this to be a nice change, as toggling on data after turning it off, is much easier now. That being said, a normal toggle like wifi or bluetooth has, would be much preferred. Dont know how to get rid of the notification, other than restarting the phone with data off (like you said).

I miss this data on/off toggle feature from the quick menu that I had on my LG G3 and other earlier Android phones.
I now use the usage manager widget on my home page or edge menu to toggle data on and off.
I have reached out to my contacts at AT&T to try and find out why they did this and if they intend to make this notification selectable like almost every other one is.

Hasn't ATT been doing this for a long time? I had to add the data toggle via root and script edit on my old ATT note 3 I remember.

It's not the absence of the quick toggle I am talking about here it's the fact that a notification comes on when you turn data off but there's no way to remove the notification once it appears or a setting to stop it from appearing at all.

I have the same issue. It only started after I downloaded and installed the Android 7.0 update late last week.

Did anybody find a solution to this yet? This can be quite frustrating as I just switched from an international s7 edge and that even had a mobile data notification toggle. Thanks in advance!

After you toggle data off, reboot the phone. It goes away for me after a reboot.

Kill the phone app
It's a bit cumbersome but better than rebooting / restarting.
  • Slide the 'data off' notification right to expose the gear icon
  • Click gear
  • Click green 'phone'
  • Now 'force stop' the phone app

I know it sounds scary but this works (until the next time you enable & disable data).

Yeah I've got the same complaint with my S7, can't slide off or clear the notification after turning data off unless you restart. Let us slide the option off. I want a button I can just click to turn on/off data. "OH WAIT, THAT WOULD BE AWESOME AND CONVENIENT, WE CAN'T DO THAT!" -Samsung

I hate this notification
Is doing this too harmful for the phone app? I just got a Galaxy S7 that had AT&T as a carrier, but I'm not on the AT&T network. I just tried a hack from XDA that allowed me to get the mobile data toggle but the notification started popping up when i disabled data. It's very annoying but I haven't found any other ways of disabling it. I just want to know if force stopping the phone would be bad for me in the long run. I'm wondering why i upgraded if it was going to be so much trouble.
