    Default Wifi Switching to AT&T

    I get free wifi at work but every now and then I notice my phone switched from my work wifi to the AT&T wifi which I rather it didn't to my AT&T data plan to be used when I'm not at work or home and need to it then.

    I just want to be notified that it is switching or keep it from switching if I can. I have to constantly check and see which wifi I'm on to make sure.
    Is there an app or way to notify me?

    I don't know if there is an app, but I just turn off the auto connect to AT&T Wi-Fi wireless within the advanced options of your wireless. This way I manually connect to a wireless network and I know what one I am connected to at all times.

    If it's switching to AT&T Wifi (AT&T has hotspots all over the place) it's not costing you data. If you install the Data On-OFF widget, you can easily control your data from the homescreen, and make sure it's off when you're on Wifi. Then if you switch to AT&T, you'll know it's their Wifi, not your data.
