More often we're seeing Canadian versions of samsung devices without mobile data or hotspot buttons (quick toggles). Biggest problem everybody has is it seems too complicated to restore or enable them.
I've created a very simple batch file/script that will easily walk you through the whole process and do all the work! If automatic mode doesn't work, it will restore from backup and allow you to do it manually while giving you the exact commands to type. A backup is created when you attempt to modify your toggles, so you can always restore your original toggles.
Automatic script confirmed working with Pie on: Galaxy S 9/10, and Note 9 devices
Automatic script confirmed working with Oreo on: Galaxy S 6/7/8/9 Galaxy A 3/5/7/8, and Note 9 devices.
Manual mode confirmed working with Oreo on: Galaxy S 6/7/8/9
Galaxy A 3/5/7/8, and
Note 8/9 devices.

Just because your Samsung device isn't listed does not mean it may not work. The only requirement is that you're on Android Nougat or above. Samsung devices are mostly configured the same way and this script should work for yours as well. So long as the backup was created, anyone that wants to experiment can try it on their device and have the protection of restoring from backup.
First part: download smart switch for your PC https://www.samsung.com/ca/support/app/smartswitch/ and do a backup of your device. (this process will modify settings in your phone. if it doesn't work, you will be able to restore your original toggles via the script. But if that fails you will have to do a factory reset and restore your data via smart switch)
Second part: download my copy of ADB ( android debug bridge ) onto your PC http://www.pconline.ca/downloads/platform-tools.zip (This is the standard adb download with my added batch files) -extract the files (preferably to your desktop) -install the USB drivers (included if needed) -put you phone in usb debugging mode (instructions here - http://bfy.tw/G7gO) -plug your phone into your computer -once you hear the device connected sound in windows, run (double-click) "RUNME.bat"
IMPORTANT NOTE: Every update and security patch undoes this process. You must go through these steps again after every update in order to re-enable the toggles. There's no way to prevent this except by calling your provider and complain...it is they who request the option be removed in order to change us ridiculous data rates
SPECIAL NOTE: you can examine the .bat files yourself using notepad to ensure that no malicious code is hidden within. I wouldn't want to spread malicious code. I enjoy helping people in this community and wouldn't want to sacrifice my good reputation.
