Default WiFi toggle?

Just got my Verizon GS4 and I noticed there is no quick toggle for WiFi...
Is there a certain trick to get it to popup?

Thanks!

Is it the "Mobile Data" quick toggle? That seems to turn WiFi off.
Edit: That seems to turn a bunch of stuff off. I'm mising a WiFi toggle too by the way.

Eh sort of. You click on this to setup and connect. Not that big of a deal but I was just wondering if I was missing something here...

no wifi toggle in the task bar settings is a bit of any annoyance to me since i had it on my galaxy nexus.

however, if you have wifi enabled in settings and you're connected to a wifi network you can easily turn wifi off from the notification bar. but if you're not connected to a wifi network you have to go back into settings to turn wifi off. it's not a huge deal since wifi uses very little power when it's not connected, but still an annoyance to those of us who like to micromanage that stuff.

On my phone the five toggles that appear when you swipe down from the top are

Wi-Fi - GPS - Sound - Screen Rotation - Bluetooth

So I can just turn wifi off by swiping down and tapping the wifi icon. This is the default list so you or someone else must have edited your list to get the set you have.

If you swipe down with two fingers you get the whole set of toggles so you can turn wifi off that way.

Also, if you swipe down with two fingers there is a little pencil icon at the top. Tapping this will allow you to edit what appears in the list that you get if you swipe down with only one finger.

the setting is carrier specific. verizon customers don't have the wifi toggle available in the notification bar settings. other carriers apparently do offer the wifi toggle in their notification bar settings.

Is it not in the full list that you get if you swipe down with two fingers or swipe down with just one and then tap the squares icon at the top right hand corner?

All there is...
No big deal really, I only change it twice a day so it doesn't bother me.
