    Hi All
    Please explain to me why this happens?
    Started when I had the update of software to Jellybean more than a month ago and was advised to deactivate the powersaving option which I did.
    I literally switch all my mobile data/powersaving AND noticed that there has been a spike in my airtime been used and the only difference is - Wifi switches on automatically.
    This happens more than 9 times a day and is quite frustrating thus could someone explain to me what is happening?
    I had the S1 which was great and only believe in Samsung as have the Tab 2 10.1(no jellybean downloaded as not available in South Africa).

    Please can comeone out there give me an answer?

    Highly appreciated!

    You must have a 3rd party app installed that's causing this behavior - it certainly doesn't happen on the stock 4.1.2 firmware.
    I've run across apps before that would automatically turn on WiFi when you reached a certain location; in fact, I was pretty sure one of them was a Verizon app, but I couldn't find it just now.
    Edit - Verizon WiFi Auto-On: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...zw.wificonnect
