    Disable wifi

    How can I disable wifi and keep it swtiched off until I want to use it again, while keeping other radio services on.

    I have pretty bad wi fi reception in my bedroom, however it's just sufficient for my phone to detect it and connect, but it drops out and syncing/downloading/loading web pages is very slow ad often fails.

    However, I have inclusive data in my plan which I never use all of.

    I'd like to use mobile data when in my bedroom, but whenever I switch off wifi in the notifications area, it immediately detects the weak signal, restarts and prefers this to mobile data.

    Tell your phone to forget your wi fi.
    Then in settings /wireless networks/wifi settings.untick both wifi and notification.
    You will have to input your passcode for your wifi if you want to reconnect

    Thanks. Is there no way to do it while having it remember my password?

    Also a supplementary question. Can I get it to only scan for wireless networks when I ask it to, or does it always do it constantly?

    You haven't got an app that lets you auto connect when your near a know WiFi location?

    My Wifi never turns itself on unless I switch it on, Then it will connect if it's a know Wifi connection or ask which one I want to use. I just use the toggle in the Notifications to turn it on or off.

    I don't think I have. I haveOne called Wifi manager, and one called wifi analyzer, neither of which seem to do this. When I use the toggle in the notifications, or untick "wi fi" in the settings, it switches off for about 5 seconds then reconnects straight away.

    That's not normal, right?

    Could it be a battery saver app doing it, like juice defender?

    Just bumping this as I still can't turn off wi-fi when near a known network. I think this might be related to my terrible battery life too.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Even to say if this is normal or not.

    Turn off/uninstall WiFi Manager as well then....You don't need it obviously....That may be the culprit.
