    I do not now if people made posts about this yet but what I would like to see for iPhone users in the final version is a data toggle button in the control panel or whatever you would call it. I always turn off my data once I have access to wifi and it would be helpful.

    Doesn't the phone already use Wifi once you connect?

    Yes, but I still prefer to turn it off once I'm on a network

    even when on wifi, the iOS keeps all push connections alive through the mobile network..

    Data on and off and 3G on off is a must for io 7

    You're talking about kb's of data.. Not megabytes. Shallow argument.

    Agree 100% allow us to disable data if we do not want to use any data apps.

    EDIT: only if we are in hotspot.

    At the moment you can switch to Airplane mode then switch on wifi and bluetooth as required from the control center. Although that disconnects the carrier completely.

    Would that block texts? Don't have an iPhone and remember some trick with wifi and texting...

    though that wouldn't help when you want no data running but want texts

    I'm not giving an argument in any direction, I'm just adding on a comment from a user who seems to be assuming that once wifi is connected there's no mobile data.

    For some users without 3G signal that is actually an issue. If you only have EDGE signal, very often your phone will appear as if disconnected if you get a call, and that is because the phone is keeping the push connection alive.

    I don't really care about a mobile data shortcut, I would only ever use it if I'm roaming abroad.
