    You would use that tool, "Verizon WIFI Auto-on" to actually do the turning on and off of WIFI based on where you are. The only reason you might also use Smart Actions in conjunction with Auto-on is if you want location based Smart Actions to function. Since Smart Actions requires WIFI to be on in order to get a fix on your location, any Smart Actions that you set based on location will only work once WIFI is turned on, so if Auto-on is set to turn on WIFI for instance, at work (even if there's no WIFI actually there), then you can set a Smart Action which is location based and use your work location to tell the phone to go from ring to vibrate, for instance.

    When you leave work, WIFI Auto-on would turn off WIFI, and that would trigger the Smart Action to turn your ringer back on again! Works like a charm, Smart Actions and Verizon WIFI Auto-on make a nice team and play together well.

    So before using Verizon Wifi Auto-on, do I go into menu>settings>wireless networks and turn off wifi? And if I go somewhere that has wifi and I don't want to setup a smart action for that area, I'll just have to enable/disable wifi manually?

    I can't use Wifi at work so I tried using a timeframe as a trigger instead of location and than set some actions and it works perfect. :-)

    Even though you can't use WIFI at work (and even if there isn't a WIFI location anywhere), Verizon's WIFI Auto-on will STILL turn on WIFI if you set work as a location. It doesn't matter that there isn't WIFI, all Verizon WIFI Auto-on is doing is determining your location using the Cell sites to triangulate you, and then turning on the WIFI radio at those locations you specify.

    You don't NEED WIFI available for the Verizon app to work, but you DO need WIFI ON for Smart Actions Location triggers to work. So instead of the timeframe as you've set, you can replace that with the Smart Actions Location trigger instead and all will work fine.
