While you cannot turn data off in the drop down menu, you can pretty easily from "settings" and "connections". Not quite sure about your call log issue...seems unique
i hate that you cant hide contents of a text message when you get one. so everyone can see who messaged you and what they are messaging you. you can turn it off but it turns off everything to do with that message no sound, no vibrate, nothing just a little red 1 on your envelope. also when someone calls you it lists when the last call you had made or received from this person and the last text and what it says while the call is coming through. they need to sort that out some how. also no data of/on option on the quick drop down menu.

During conversations, audio cuts out while I am speaking so people on the other end think I have hung up. Is anyone else having this recurring issue? I cannot get AT&T to do anything.

It comes up "unfortunately usage manager has stopped" I get the same message every time I check. ATT&T store didn't seem to care.
There's a lot of comments of people hating this phone but it's not a bad phone, it's the fact that it's brand new and is going to have some problems, I have one and it's just fine, facebook, apps, quickness, definitely better than my old iPhone 4. One of the best phones on the market and considering the fact that they're using a better processor than even the Galaxy 5, it's obviously not the phone, it's just the bad ones of the bunch.

may be a dumb question but my bro just got this phone and wants to know "where is the text icon" or do you have to pay to get one?

It's slow. It takes 10 minutes to get map directions to calculate. Snapchat is a thing of my past with the active. It just doesn't work anymore.
It freezes for minutes at a time.
I had to get a replacement within a week because the phone would lock and not work for HOURS.
I hate this phone and I am a huge android fan.
32 gb memory is way too small in such phone, which supports 4K video. Even 1080 video take 1 mb/ sec so what one can do with 4K video recorder with just 32 gb memory. It's useless for the low memory. If they sell half of the price, I'll not buy it. Epic fall!
I love my Galaxy S6 Active, however after the 5.1.1 update I noticed my Usage manager Widget does not work. It's such a convenient widget to have; too bad it doesn't work anymore.
ALCORS11, 19 Nov 2015Facebook mobile app no longer compatible with Galaxy s6 active! Any ideas why?I have the s6 and had the same problem with Facebook. Went to the Amazon app store and installed from there. Works as expected, don't update from play until they fix the issue.
ALCORS11, 19 Nov 2015Facebook mobile app no longer compatible with Galaxy s6 active! Any ideas why?I noticed the same thing. Boy was I upset. Then I took the time to look through the apps and realized that there is a app called Multi Facebook and it works gr8. It's just a little more advanced than the normal one you get. Hope this helps :)
JeanneMarie, 19 Nov 2015I have been through over 3 Samsung cell phones got talked into a Samsung galaxy S6 active and ... moreWOW ON the phone with AT&T now and they say they can't send me another type of phone, just because of the battery and no face book issue. WOW really? they what me to sign another contract??? Why would I want to do that if they are not complying to the first contract of a working cell phone.
wes, 18 Nov 2015My Facebook has been locked out for days any suggestions on how to fix itI have been through over 3 Samsung cell phones got talked into a Samsung galaxy S6 active and AT&T says even though it is said to be water proof and damage proof it isn't and I lost face book on it now. You can't post pics onto facebook by going to the internet and logging onto facebook that way, I HATE THIS PHONE!!! The phone has to be charged several times a day!!! HOW in HEAVEN did it get a good rating??? WOW NO more Samsung products for me!@
