In some areas of my house I have weak wifi so I prefer to use 4g by turning wifi off, but it will automatically turn itself back on and reconnect. How do I set it such that if I turn off wifi it stays off until I turn it back on?

Below is a list of all the installed apps (pm list packages from the terminal emulator)

  • You have to go to Settings -> WiFi -> Advanced -> 'Scanning always available' set this to off. This would suffice. – Vishnu Prasad Kallummel Mar 17 '15 at 4:29
  • @VishnuPrasadKallummel it is off though and it still does this. – tenmiles Mar 17 '15 at 4:30

There are some apps that may turn the Wi-Fi on. I know of one app that can turn on your Wi-Fi when at a specific location. There may be some app turning your Wi-Fi on, I suggest seeing if you can find which app is doing that.

  • Once upon a time I had an app that would turn wifi on/off based on cell tower information, but I don't seem to have that installed anymore and none of the apps I have seem to do that. I'm currently trying to export a list of my installed apps, but I'm still at a loss. – tenmiles Mar 11 '15 at 16:26
