    Default Wifi and 4g stay on while at home

    When I get home my wifi automatically turns on like it should, problem is the 4g stays active and confuses the phone which now thinks it has no data connection. On all my other phones including my s3 the 4G always goes dormant when wifi is connected. I end up having to turn off the mobile data tab to disconnect the 4G.

    Question is does anyone else's note 2 do this, or is it just my phone, or maybe there is a setting I missed.

    It becomes a problem because I can't receive mms while 4g is off and when I leave the house I forget to turn it back on and don't receive emails etc

    Thanks ahead of time

    Whenever my phone goes into WiFi mode the 4G turns off by it self.

    I had this problem. I'm pretty sure it was an issue with my wifi and the n2 had to use 4g b/c wifi wasn't transferring packets to my phone. Router and phone reboot solved it.

    I also had this problem. I pulled the battery on the phone AND reset my router. One of those two things fixed the problem as it hasn't occurred since.
