    This is by far the most disrespectful thing Verizon has done to a phone that i can think of to date. Why are there no riots over this stupidity?

    Yeah, it sucks. Other versions of the S3 just have a WiFi toggle in the pull down notification area with the other toggles, but for some reason, Verizon wanted to go this way. The only way to get rid of it for now is to either install a custom ROM or root and use the process detailed here.

    As for the really annoying WiFi popup notification that randomly appears when using mobile data, you can get rid of that without root. The process for that is discussed here.

    Yeah, that's what we're talking about. It's not really a toggle. It's a notification (an annoying to me and many others) that will take you to the settings. The toggles are the switches above that which allow you to turn various things on and off without going anywhere else. All other versions of the S3 have a WiFi toggle there. This ongoing notification is something Verizon has started doing (the Incredible 4G has it too), and hopefully they'll stop it. There's no reason to take up that space with a message like that when a simple toggle will be even quicker.
