I love the phone so far, it's been great. The only thing that annoys me is that the Wi-Fi automatically turns on wherever I'm at, and will connect to random Wi-Fi spots, when I have 4G. I was wondering is their a way to disable this feature? I turn Wi-Fi off but then turns back on still whenever it wants. Thanks for the help.

Are you on Sprint? If so go under your "More Networks" option and ensure to disable "Sprint Connection Optimizer". It will randomly turn on wifi and try to connect to it ... it is Sprint's way of off-loading data to wifi networks.

Re: Galaxy S4 question.

Have you disabled the auto network switch? It is in the advanced wifi settings

Re: Galaxy S4 question.

Could you post a screenshot of the path that Almeuit suggested?

Re: Galaxy S4 question.

Samsungs try power and home at the same time. You need the Forums app to post pictures.

Yup. Power plus home button at the same time. Or you can use your palm motion if you have it set up.
