    I was wondering if it's possible to turn off the Open WiFi Network notification?

    Isn't there usually an option for this? If there is one on this phone, I've missed it somewhere.

    Thanks for the time.

    *I'm an idiot. Sorry.*

    Go to your list of wifi networks, then hit the menu key, advanced wifi, uncheck network notification

    Disable connections optimizer

    The problem I find with disableing connections optimizer is it handles the auto logon for public wifi which I use a lot at work. I wish they would separate that. I don't like how the optimizer will auto turn on wifi when ever it feels like it.

    If you've already logged on before it should log on every time without the use of connections optimizer.

    No, connections optimizer handles automatically logging you in to previously used networks.

    Maybe I'm not understanding something

    When you connect to an open network that requires an authorization or acceptance of terms, it loads in a window from connections optimizer. At the bottom it offers to automatically authenticate for that network from then on. This if different from logging into a private network with typical security in your Wi-Fi settings.

    Public wifi connections today almost always require you to accept a terms of service agreement over a web page. This temporary authorization is forgotten when you disconnect. As long as the TOS acceptance page is a simple button click, connection optimizer can totally automate the process without needing to bring up a web page.

    Even though my Wifi is turned off (from the toggle above the notification area), it will turn itself on if there is an accessible network. I don't mind it when I'm charging, but when it is not charging I don't want it to.

    Is there a way to make the wifi stay off when I have it turned off?

    Murf, that is the connection optimiser I was referring to above. Turning it off will stop it from seeking out open wifi, but at the same time it will no longer auto logon to any public wifie hotspots you frequent, if that matters to you.
