    Default Verizon Note 3...wifi issue

    Who all has jacked up wifi? We're u able to remedy the issue? Mine was working awesome for few days but now it has wifi signal and the 4G signal at same time......so does this mean it going off 4G instead wifi. My other phones all work wifi only and the note 3 shows the 4G or 3g

    Have you turned the 4G off when you have WiFi on?

    I was having the same issue til I stayed on the phone with Verizon. Have you notice an app that vzw has been trying to force you to try called "caller id". This app will only run on 4g. Thus the reason WiFi, and 4g are running simultaneously. Once you get rid of that app, problem solved. I actually had to buy the app, then immediately turnaround and cancel so I could go to application manager and uninstall. Hope this helps.

    That works great but I constantly get message saying 'Internet connection is unreliable'
    Has anyone figured out a way to get rid of the message?

    I have only experienced the unreliable connection issue when using the Wi-Fi at my customer's office where both wifi and 4g signals are weak. I haven't had the issue at my office or at home yet where both signals are stronger.

    I've disabled the auto network switching as well as the caller ID app and still had the issue on the customer's Wi-Fi, but it did seem significantly improved. The only time I never saw this issue is when I completely disabled mobile data. However, I've only owned the phone a week, so not sure yet if this completely solved the problem or if it was just coincidental.

    I've noticed that when my cell signal goes in and out, that my wifi gets flaky and keeps disconnecting.

    Wi-Fi works great (for me). After I got the settings right, no more problems.
    It's just that annoying message that keeps popping up.
    I am careful not to use my Note 3 when I have a gun in my hand. It is that annoying... I'm afraid I'll shoot the phone and get my hand as collateral damage.!
    I understand about losing unlimited data. It was hard to give up. I am not a big fan of Verizon (to say the least). I looked at the other carriers but they all have their own scams going. At least with Verizon I have decent coverage at my farm in BFE. (He chokes back tears)

    Go under settings, and then Application Manager, Slide to the right to the all tab. Find the caller id app and tap on it.You have the option to uninstall it, and click that. Then it will remove it, it will then be under the turned off app's tab.

    It will not actually let it be fully removed, since it is bloatware that Verizon installed. But you should have moved to the tab that says Turned Off (which forms once you have turned off one app) and it will stay off.

    What was once a minor annoyance with the Wi-Fi disconnect issue has turned to full blown anger. As I am overseas right now all I have is Wi-Fi. It's honestly ridiculous and evidently there is no end in sight because possibly the only fix will be 4.4 but that will possibly bring a whole other list of issues. Those of you who actually got a note 3 with no Wi-Fi issues should count themselves lucky, because the last couple of days I have been contemplating using this thing as a substitute for a frisbee.

    I have issues too but I notice it more when using Google Play. Things do not really want to load too fast. I wish it would work well like the Note 2 I had

    I have 2 Samsung phones - Verizon Note 3 and Verizon Galaxy Nexus. I cannot get on to wifi through Verizon Fios with either. I know that the router isn't the problem since I can get on with my old Droid, my laptop, and my wife can get on with a Galaxy Tab 10.1. When I try to connect I get a message that says the signal is unstable. My notification shows the wifi symbol with two arrows (one going into the symbol and another leaving the symbol). The notification area also shows my 4 G strength. When I try to open up the internet the browser just sits there and nothing opens. I have to shut off wifi to get on the internet. Restarted both phones and router. Shut off call ID with no results. Has anyone got any other solutions?

    This appears to be a systemic Samsung phone issue. Anyway to know if Samsung knows about this issue and is working on a fix?

    WiFi is just plain flaky on this device. It is very unstable with fluctuating signal quality. The Note 2 has much better WiFi reception.
