    Is there a setting I'm missing? My wifi constantly turns itself on. I don't want it on until I get home, or need to use it, so I turn it off. But each time I look at my phone, it's back on again and I have to keep turning it back off. Anyone else notice this?

    Try go to Wi-Fi then select advance, then uncheck the first box Notify Me. This option will turn on Wi-fi when an app tries to use data if enabled.

    If you have a Android v4 phone, Also go into smart actions and disable all actions.

    If these don't help, maybe you installed a widget or app that requires network connectivity and turns it on automatically. You can uninstall the app or even try a factory reset till you have the problem fixed.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanx, this seems to have solved it! I figured it was just a setting I hadn't found. This one is nested pretty deep.
