    That's very odd. Is yours carrier modded?

    Also do you know which android version you are on?
    One of my updates gave me more options on the top toggle bar and I need to scroll it to see them.

    I have Wifi, GPS, Sound, Rotation and bluetooth initially visible and scroll for Mobile Data, Blocking Mode, Power Saving, Allshare and Sync.

    Apparently the update to 4.1.2 includes settings to modify these but I don't have it yet.

    Very odd that a carrier would leave a wi-fi toggle off of the notification toggles.

    Have either of you scrolled to the right (the OEM notification toggle can scroll left/right), to see if it's being hidden by the viewing area?

    If it truly isn't on there, you can create another notfication toggle using Widgetsoid.

    Verizon removed it. They don't want people to "accidentally" turn off Wifi and take up too much of their 4G LTE bandwidth.

    I'm using the app you suggested, however there's a little battery indicator that popped up on the left hand side of my notification bar and i cannot figure out how to remove it. I never selected it to be there and i prefer the stock battery percentage indicator on the right, so any help would be great! Thank you again

    Open Widgetsoid, Click on Notifications, Click on the Notification Toggle widget that you created, Click Modify. Once you're in the edit area for that Notification Toggle widget, click on the Advanced tab at the bottom of the page. Make sure the Notification Icon says "None". Once you've done that, you can update the profile for that widget (so that the settings are saved) and then click on "Apply." Your notification toggle will update automatically at the top.

    Widgetsoid is by far my favorite Widget/Notification Toggle app. Highly customizable (and definitely worth it to support the developer, who pretty much does it all on his own...but still manages to respond as quickly as possible, despite not having a complete staff helping him).

    While I've got you...how do you take screenshots on this wonderful phone? Thanks

    Swipe the edge of your palm across it is the easiest way.
    Also Home and power or long press with the S-Pen with the pen button pressed (which also allows you to edit and share the screenshot directly.

    US carriers really do suck donkeys and blow goats.

    I can confirm Bodestone's instructions. Only thing I'd preface the palm gesture method with is, make sure that it's activated in the Gesture settings on the phone.

    Can you not go

    Settings --> Display --> Notification Panel?

    I have the option to change these, if your running 4.1.2 you should too.

    Verizon... they don't have the 4.1.2 update yet. And probably not for a while. And even if they do, they could easily remove that option which they will.

    Completely forgot that was one of the updates in 4.1.2. I guess I will be making some changes in my International version before driving home tonight. Thanks for mentioning
