    Have you connected to a wifi network? The popup most are complaining about is when you open an app with wifi OFF and are in range of a remembered network. A couple seem to be getting no popup at all while the vast majority are constantly nagged by it.

    simply open the dialer and enter the following code:
    *#6335623#

    this will open "HiddenMenuWifiOffload" menu.
    select "Disable WifiOffloading"
    press OK

    Got it to work, thanks :-)

    Are you on verizon? if so i doubt that the dial code works. Hence why i posted this thread in the version page. i don't think the dial er trick works on Verizon phones.

    Yep, works on my Verizon SG3 as well, even though I already used Anycut.
    a little obsessive...

    It does work on my Verizon SIII which is why I posted in this forum.

    Not sure why any other carrier users would want to know this hack/trick as I believe this wifi issue/annoyance is mainly on VZW S3's no?

    Does this only happen if wifi is left on? I have a tasker profile that would turn wifi off when out of range of my house so just curious.

    Only when wifi is off and you open a data intensive app. There's a separate one for when wifi is on but that one can be turned off.

    Just did the dialer change on both mine and the wife's VZW S3 and worked so far.

    This worked for me on Verizon. I did a copy/paste from the forum to my dialer and it worked. I am rooted, not sure if that helped me... Thanks for sharing.

    I got rid of the wifi reminder and wifi popup box using the instructions in the OP,actually saw the one on XDA first then saw this one.
    I am going to install the wifi icon next.


    Do you have to be deoxed for the wifi toggles to work?
    I am on stock rom just debloated with wifi reminder and wifi popup disabled only .

    If you're using just a stock rooted phone... Then use the regular "Wifi toggles. zip"... If you're using a zip aligned deoxed ROM, then use the ones labeled.." Beans"

    For the blue colored toggles use the ones labeled "ICS blue"

    Worked great. Just opened hidden menu and disabled wifi popups.

    So just to be clear (I'm an iPhone convert waiting for S3 delivery) #6335623# will get rid of the pop up. Is there another issue about the toggle that only rooting works on. Or is that not nearly as significant as the annoying pop-ups? Does it just continue to read "Ongoing Notification" without otherwise bothering you?

    Correct sir, just dial that number and select off and done. No more annoying wifi pop ups for you

    I think they took this out as of the update that was pushed out today. I was able to get the *#5665623# dial to work, but I cant get it anymore. Anyone have any updates to this?

    I have tried both the dial code and the Anycut method and neither seem to work. I am using a completely stock verizon s3. Anyone have any suggestions other than root?

    The dial code didn't work at all, and the Anycut method got me to the menu, and I checked to turn it off, then clicked the save button or whatever it was. When I got back to the home screen and checked my notifications it was still there. I power cycled the phone and the notification was still there again. Did I do something wrong?

    ETA: Is this still a problem in JB as well?
