You need to turn off the sprint optimizer setting. I think it's in settings>more settings>mobile networks>connections optimizer. Just uncheck it

Default Verizon note 2 keep connecting to wifi even though it is turned off

Any idea how to keep my verizon note 2 from connecting to wifi? I don't want it on the network at work all day long. I think it's draining the battery.
