Hi guys, i noticed an irritating problem with my One S after a few days of usage. My WiFi turns on at random, and remains on when my phone is in sleep mode. This occurs when I have 3G on. I have turned off using WiFi in sleep mode.

Anything else I can do? I feel like this takes a toll on my battery life.

I wouldn't worry too much about wifi if you just got the phone.
While its connected it shouldn't use up the battery. Afaik
It's the searching that uses battery.

yeah my wifi is on 24/7 i dont experience any drain through it..

you could put a toggle widget on one of your screens to turn it on / off.

it shouldnt be switching itself on it you manually turned it off

But it does exactly that! It turns itself on even after I have manually toggled it off. irritating as it searches for open networks even if I have data on. How do I resolve this hmmm
