    Default Wifi turning itself back on

    Anyone else seeing where wifi is turning itself back on after being turned off? Maybe I'm an *****, but it seems that the phone is turning wifi back on even after I've manually turned it off. Seems to be about 30 minutes to an hour afterwards.

    I haven't run into this issue on mine. Just curious, is it turning back on while you are using it? Or is it in your pocket for 30 or so minutes then when you take it back out it is turned on?

    The same thing is happening to me. I literally turn it off twice and at a later time Wi-Fi its searching for a signal. What's going on? Is there a fix for this? Maybe within the settings(something I may have overlooked)?

    Im thinking its your connectipns optimizer. go to settings>more...> mobile networks> connections optimizer. turn this setting to off and see if it helps.

    My s3 did the same thing and it was the sprint connection optimizer. Once you connect to wifi in a location as soon as you go back to that location your wifi will turn on and try and connect. While it's great for sprint its a p.i.t.b. I've turned it off multipletimes but it never fully disables and aafter a reboot it will turn on again
