Ten things I'm happy Apple fixed in iOS 7

It is not a "Control Center" either, and this name is worse than "Control Panel". The control center of the iPhone is the Settings application, not this panel.
This panel requires a more decent name, such as "Quick Settings" or "System Shortcuts".
It also requires a "More Settings..." button or an icon of the Settings application, otherwise novice users will never learn that there exists a Settings application and will think their settings are limited to those on that panel.

Here's the thing. Many if us do not have unlimited data plans or are unwilling to pay the high prices required to use Siri over 3G/4G.
Before Siri, I could place a call by using Voice Dialing. I still can as long as I disable Siri. I leave Cell Data off most of the time and like to leave Siri on most of the time since I almost always have WiFi available. But on the road, in my car, I obviously do not have WiFi. If I'm driving (or even if not), I have to turn off Siri or turn on Cell Data to use Voice Dialing. The controls to do either are buried too deep in Settings to be convenient or even safe.
Evidently, the young whipper-snappers at Apple think we all have cell data available all the time. If we all lived in metropolitan areas and were rich, that would be true, but most of us don't meet this requirement.
Apple needs to either teach Siri to handle Voice Dialing without being connected to the Internet or they need to make it easy to turn off Siri. It seems obvious to me that Siri should understand a command to simply turn off (and on) Siri!
Is this too much to ask?
Help me get Apple's attention.

I wonder if the shipping version of iOS 7 will add the carrier name back to that top row.

Stupid omission indeed. The carrier name cannot be omitted. Let's make our remark and expect a correction if that's not just another idiosyncracy: function follows design....
