Re: STOP HTC ONE FROM CONNECTIONG TO WIFI!!!!

Good point, I think that's part of the Location setting for High Accuracy maybe.

dwbydesign - Did you stop the location service from searching for a WiFi network? Let us know if that's what was causing your phone, to constantly look for a WiFi network connection. Thank you. - Kayan Sprint Social Care

Re: STOP HTC ONE FROM CONNECTIONG TO WIFI!!!!

Yes! Problem solved!!

It was the Android Location service, not an app (is the location service part of stock Android?). If you set it to High Accuracy or Battery Saver mode, it will turn on WiFi constantly. If you select Device Only, it does not turn on the wifi. Not very intuitive, an undocumented "feature".

Thanks guys. This is soo much better. Maybe we should put in a request for a location feature that doesn't just constantly turn on WiFi?

Actually, I think its the majority of Android phones as this is a feature of Android (Google) itself, not the phone. So I wouldn't be surprised at all to find out HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony, Motorola, etc.. all have this same thing.

Re: STOP HTC ONE FROM CONNECTIONG TO WIFI!!!!

Ok, it's been nearly 2 days so calling this fixed. Not once in two days has wifi kidnapped my connection. And I'm still in the same hotel and office where it captured I immediately on boot up and at least every hour through the day.

There was one guy on another forum who has Location set to Battery Saving mode and says it's not doing it, which seems odd since the text next to the Location - Battery Saving mode button says it uses wifi! All I can say is in High Accuracy mode it does it, and in Device Only mode it doesn't.
