Also experiencing the same missing toggles. Am running stock rom and kernel on my G925F - Cell C South Africa.

It happened during the day when I restarted my phone after it charged at work. How can it just 'disappear'?!:confused:

Good. Atleast Samsung has acknowledged the issue. Let's hope the solution is not factory reset :banghead:

Your question:
Hi, I just noticed that my mobile data toogle, together with a few other quick toogles are missing from quick settings panel.

So apparently this is some built in feature within lollipop of expiring quick setting toggles you don't use after 30 days. Coincidentally i've had my phone for about 30 days. I guess most people here had their phone around the same time, which is why you are now experiencing this problem. Stupid programming, stupid features, not enough user control!!! I hope there is a non-root solution for all us unrooted folk.

Check out this crap:

Unused tiles will automatically disappear from Quick Settings in Android 5.0 Lollipop

Google has given Quick Settings a major revamp with Android 5.0 Lollipop and filled it with useful toggles that people actually use in day-to-day life. One neat little feature that the company has added in Lollipop for Quick Settings is that unused items will automatically disappear after a certain time.

For example, if you don’t use W-Fi hotspot quick tile in Lollipop for a certain amount of time, it will automatically disappear. Similarly, if you frequently use an option from the Settings menu, it will automagically appear as a tile in Quick Settings.

However, Google does not provide a way to bring back a toggle that is removed, or remove one that comes up automatically.

As pointed out on Reddit by user eak125 though, you can fast forward, or go back a month or two in time to remove any unwanted toggles. To remove an unused toggle, simply head over to Settings -> Date & Time and change the date to a month from now. The unused quick tile will then automatically disappear. Do note though that the default toggles in Lollipop will always be present no matter what.
There is also another way to reset the Quick Settings tile using ADB, but the process is more cumbersome than the one pointed out by eak125.

Considering how limited quick settings was in KitKat, it is nice to see that Google has added such thoughtful new features to it in Lollipop to enhance its usability.

I don't think this is causing issue. I toggle mobile data couple of times in a day.

WTF man I mean WTF, just noticed that same happened to my phone!

I thought there was something wrong with me as I was too stoned on Friday. But then, I thought WTF, how can I make the mobile data toggle disappear from my phone? I'm not a magician.

Anyways, Samsung acknowledges the issue, and there's a temporary workaround as well - http://bit.ly/s6-data-toggle

There's an app on google play called "QuickPanel Manager" published by Xperiacle Apps allows us to show or hide toggles from Quick Panel including some toggles of Functions that some version of s6 doesn't really have(e.g. Floating Message),no root needed. I don't know how, but I'm assuming that you don't need root access to edit the file that controls the visibility of these toggles.
