Unhappy [Q] WiFi Will not stop trying to connect automatically

All of the WiFi issues I have found seem so to be that the WiFi cant connect properly.

I have the opposite problem in that I am not often near free networks. When I leave my house, I turn the WiFi off on my phone.

So I will be watching something on youtube or updating mail at work and everything will just quit. I check the connection and the WiFi is back on and everything stopped because it is trying to connect to WiFi and not staying on my Sprint data connection.

How do I make it quit? I will be at work where there is a highly secured WiFi connection used by some of the more remote robotic systems. My phone will suddenly pop up and tell me that a WiFi signal has been detected and I will get better service by using that connection.

I only want to use WiFi when I turn it on - not when the phone suddenly decides to turn it on.

If you're on Sprint then you have an S4 and are in the wrong forum. This forum is for the S4 Active.
Google Nexus 7 32gb Wifi
Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (rooted)
Samsung Galaxy SII (sold)
Samsung Captivate (traded in)
HTC Tilt 2 (on bedroom duty)
LG Incite (long gone)
RAZR V3 (my 1st net-enabled phone)
