    Either root, or just don't have any wifi networks remembered on your phone (with wifi turned off of course). I have only seen a pop up once for my home network when I came home from work the day after I got my phone. I unremembered my network, and haven't seen it since.

    You'll have to used the AnyCut method forum this. Just Google 'Galaxy SIII Wifi Notification AnyCut' and you'll find it within the first 5 results.

    You don't need to be rooted to stop the pop-up.

    If you havent seen the number here it is ,its in the quote below orginally posted by this guy
    from the [Hack]Remove WiFi reminder thread.I added the link to that thread here , post #16

    I found this comment to the article about the nagging WiFi popup on Slashgear. This does not require root or any apps. It accesses the hidden menu via the phone dialer. I did this and no more pop-up.

    To those who wish to remove the wifi popup, NO NEED TO DOWNLOAD ANYCUT!
    simply open the dialer and enter the following code:
    *#6335623#

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

    After you enter the string of numbers in the dialer you dont press send .He said after he entered the # key it went to the menu box that allowed this notification to be disabled
    ekk and cl36 like this.

    That's what I did and have not had a popup reminder once. Doesn't everyone have that setting?

    I've read it's a bug even if you check the setting.

    The setting under wifi is for when Wifi is ON. Try rebooting and opening another app with wifi OFF near a network you've connected to and saved before. If you don't get the popup, consider yourself lucky.

    Mine just connected automatically. WiFi off, rebooted and it connected to my home WiFi after startup. I have never had that popup.

    You have the option under advanced checked to auto connect. The problem is with people who DON'T want to connect to wifi. Some of us are still on unlimited so there's really 0 benefit of using wifi.

    It's nothing that couldn't be found with 5 seconds of searching or scanning the thread list page. Just searching wifi in the title gives 20 results, most of which are on this very subject. Really should be stickied since it seems that people like to create a new thread every day.

    Doesn't WiFi use less power than lte? That would be a benefit.

    Sure but the battery life on LTE is more than acceptable on the GSIII.

    In my experience a weak LTE signal kills the battery. In my area LTE signal strength seems to change by the block. When I'm home I prefer wifi and I do have unlimited data.

    I tried this code over and over and it never worked. On Verizon. I tried a few other codes, like the led test one, and some of them worked. This one just sits there and does nothing when I type it in.

    Also tried the AnyCut method and that did not work either.

    where do you put the #'s in? I tried this and it dialed the # and said it was invalid.

    My connected to wi-fi network pops up literally ever 5 seconds always. it does it at work, at home and at the gym where they're all different and powerful wifi connections. so odd and so annoying!! I've turned off wi fi for days and it starts again as soon as I turn it back on and rebooted phone daily for a week.

    I have the same exact issue and it's driving me insane. It didn't start when I got the phone, it just randomly started happening about a month ago and now the stupid notification pops up every 15 seconds. And the *#6335623# doesn't work for me, I don't know if it's because I have AT&T or because I have the S5A.
