    When I turn WIFI off... Why does it automatically connect to wifi? My 4G is faster than my work wifi, so I would rather stay connected on 4g but when I turn on my galaxy s3 OR while using it... It automatically connects to wifi.
    How can I stop it from doing that?
    Thank you.

    Go into settings/wifi/advanced/auto-connect. Make sure that's unchecked. I'm pretty sure that's what causing it to automatically connect to a wife when you have wifi turned off. Hope this helps.

    Thank you! I did as you said and it does work... But when I open a web Page, it still connects.
    This is so frustrating.

    If you have a password.. Go into settings and forget the network, and it can't go on after that without a password.
