Default Want to get rid of the VZW wifi pop-up reminder without rooting? Come on in!

Found this at VZW support site. It works!





PJNC284 Jul 10, 2012 2:57 PM (in response to PJNC284) Welp...looks like the pesky popup has been cracked too and doesn't even require any "warranty voiding" device modifications. Instructions below (compliments of one of "those" sites) as it shouldn't void any TOS that I'm aware of.

1. Basically, get AnyCut. It's not on the Play Store anymore and is kinda hard to find.
Here ya go: http://dl.dropbox.co...6001/anycut.apk


2. Fire up AnyCut and create a new shortcut action, find "HiddenMenuWifiOffloading" and tap it. Go to your home screen and click it, change to Disabled.

This doesn't get rid of the persistent WIFI notification (the one in the notification dropdown) though... that still requires root.

Yes...two seperate issues.

One issue is the ongoing notification...annoying, but not intrusive.

The other issue is the pop-up notification that'll come up when wifi is turned off, and you open a application that uses data. It says something like "Networks Available, Turn on wifi? Ok, Yes, Later". That popup couldn't be turned off.

What the OP posted, works for the popup.

Correct:

Since doing the Anycut change, I no longer get the three option wifi reminder. Have not all day, where as I used to average at least seven times.

The data hog reminder was the one that drove me nuts. It is stopped with the Anycut method.

I can live with the notification in the drop down menu, but the pop up whenever I opened apps was driving me insane.

basically if you dont have a wifi network memorized on the phone then it wont bug you but if the phone finds a known network oh man every time you try to access anything that requires data it pops up asking to connect, it drove me nuts so i deleted my wifi network from the phone and now it doesnt ask anymore as there are no known networks ...since i get 4g im just going to waste as much data as possible as revenge to verizon. 2 gigs down so far in 4 days of normal usage

Right there w/ ya on the use as much unlimited data to " stick it the man, " but like having the Wi-Fi option if I know I'm going to be a heavy user that day ( which has been everyday since I got this bad boy ) and want to conserve battery life. This has to be numero uno on the first Verizon OTA update.

How is this going to help? If anything it will just make Verizon aware of its grandfathered unlimited users abusing its network.......and then from there it will be as easy as changing its policy.....and end the unlimited of the unlimited.

If anything this kind short sidedness just makes it bad for all of us users.

The policy has already been changed & since I paid over $700.00 to buy this phone to keep my unlimited data it is my right to use it as I please. Not trying to be rude, but I think at that price I deserve it.

That is my point...you're only thinking about yourself....with no regard how it could effect others in the long run.

Just because you can do something...doesn't always mean you should.

Still dealing with laws of displacement, since as carriers try to shift to WiFi, the WiFi companies will eventually pushback and we will see more tiered data plans with WiFi companies.

I agree with your convention if people are using their connection to tether as a home routing system and torrent feed, since those folks abusing the system are screwing others over.

Using their phone to stream movies for own personal use rather than WiFi is their own choice and none of my business.

I stream movies using the data, just not a lot.

Ah, I got one now (and I do have auto notify turned off). Another interesting note is that using Chrome did not trigger the pop up, but going to the Play Store did.

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones also as I've never gotten the WiFi notice. Under Advanced I also have Auto-connect unchecked and Keep WiFi on set to always. I have no problem auto-connecting to my home network when I get home, even with this unchecked.

Yes..it will create a shortcut on the home screen....you then exit out and click that short cut which will give you the option to turn off the wifi notification.

Thanks Rush. This in combo with the SQLite hack to remove the dialog in the pull down menu and a zip from XDA to add the wifi widget has made me happy.

I saw some notification once, but that was before I went to uncheck the Notify Me and Auto-connect boxes in WiFi settings. I noticed something in the notifications about nearby wifi today, but it doesn't have an icon in the bar and wasn't a pop-up. Nothing obtrusive at all. I have no problem auto-connecting back home either.

Some of you may or may not know this, But I left sprint for a job with a Wifi company that operates the Wi-Fi for almost half the airports in Europe and in the U.S. We get 100 emails and calls a day a day from people screaming at us that we are not letting them use their data package because their phone auto connects to the Wi-Fi. Most of these were from iPhone users, until 3 weeks ago. I am amazed how many S3 users there have been in airports. They hardest part is trying to explain to these people its not our fault!!!

If you have autoconnect checked, you will not get the pop-up asking to connect to a network because you already did by default. It those of us that do not want to autoconnect, yet still had at least one wireless network we had used by selecting it manually from the status bar drop down, that were getting the annoying pop-up. So technically, yes, selecting auto-connect does stop the pop-ups. But also puts you on wireless any time one is available.

And what effect would that be? Slower network speeds because people are using too much data? No. The only reason carriers have tiered data plans now is because that is where the money is. People are talking less and browsing more. In the beginning they had tiered voice and text and unlimited data not because too many voice or text users would degrade the network, but because that's where the money was. Today carriers are realizing (like Verizon and their "share everything" plan) that the money is not in voice or text anymore but in data.

Actually, slow network speeds due to abuse absolutely do occur. I know because I experience that issue in my neighborhood. I used to get great 4G speeds, but now I'm lucky if I can get 3-5Mbs down and 500Kbps up. That's as good as it gets anymore, and that is actually quite rare. 1-2Mbps down and 100-200Kbps up are more realistic, and sometimes even slower than that.

People like you who believe you are entitled to anything and everything, and don't care about anybody else are pathetic. If you're one of the abusers, I genuinely hope VZW kicks you off their network.

You and Jag are both correct. Verizon went to tiered data because all the money is now in data, hence why AT&T has now released their plans and sadly sprint is now doing market research on them as well. This is where the money is so this is where carriers are going. The more people on the network the slower speeds are going to be this is just the nature of the technology. I think you were a little harsh about wanting people to get kicked off. You feel that 1mpbs download speed isn't fast enough for you? It sounds to me like your saying your entitled to speeds higher than 5mpbs. Maybe I misunderstood the post but it seemed like you were complaining about the speeds and people using the network implying you somehow entitled to "real" 4g speeds over 5mpbs.

For those of us in New York state that have the Unlimited Data still in effect according to the case law Verizon has to notify us that they are terminating our service and the ETF fee is waived. They can still kick you off, but they cant cancel it and charge you the ETF. So that is some good news if they ever decide to go this route.

Works for me too.

I wonder how such codes are found and if there are any other useful ones like this available.

I thought the point of the program and shortcut was because this setting is reset everytime you reset your phone?

I'm pretty sure it isn't reset(not sure if I ever reset my phone since I did this) so you'll have to check to confirm that...now that there is a root method where I didn't have to flash a new system image I did it so this is no longer a problem for me

Ok I tried this and I got the icon on my homescreen but when I press it, it just tells me "application not installed" what did I do wrong? Please walk me through this as this notification is so annoying. Thank you


Update: I should have kept reading because I did the *#6335623# thing and it worked perfectly!

The shortcut is so you can actually access the option, since no way to do it in normal settings UI. I replaced my battery with an extended and the option is still turned off, so must be stored in flash somewhere.

Ok thanks for the clarification. I never saw that it actually did reset, but I thought I read somewhere that people said it did.

Default Little off-topic- I have Unlimited data on VZW GS3

I'm on VZW, yes I'm having the same problem as everybody... except I'm still mad that the wifi toggle is in my notification because I accidently click on it all the time.

I suppose I can get over this because I have Unlimited data on my GS3.

My small city has a non corporate verizon. The sales rep was leaving in two weeks and goes to school for computer engineering so he decided to help me out. I have 4 phones on my vzw account, my number didn't have an upgrade so I was stealing my moms because she is tech illiterate with a shitty phone that doesn't even have a camera.... Anyways, what rep did is upgraded my moms phone number with the GS3, activated the phone on her number, then did a transfer phone to my number. This let me keep my unlimited data, he said at a corporate verizon they def. wouldn't allow this. He also said his manager doesn't care because if the verizon system allows it, anything goes to help customers. It does take two sim cards to do this and my moms phone did have to be shut off for about 10 minutes.

I think to this day I'm one of the very few at verizon with unlimited data on GS3?

Your thoughts?

Not really. Lots of people have the GS3 and unlimited data. We just had to pre-order it.

But welcome to the forums!
