    I have gone into the WiFi advance setting and have changed them to the following:

    *NETWORK NOTIFICATION - UNCHECKED
    *KEEP WIFI ON DURING SLEEP - NEVER (INCREASES DATA USAGE)
    *CHECK FOR INTERNET SERVICE - UNCHECKED
    *WIFI TIMER - OFF

    Even if i have WiFi set to OFF I'll be driving/walk around and it will turn on by itself and advise me that it has found a WiFi signal and if i want to connect!

    It's funny cause where I WANT it to auto connect (like my house) I have to turn on the WiFi myself to get it going........funny to say the least.

    Has anyone out there ran into the same issue and solved it or found a work around? Please advise and thanks for your time!

    It will resolve it. That connection optimizer by Sprint is meant to turn it on randomly just to see if you are near wifi so it can latch to it.
