Default [Q] Actually Disable WiFi on s4 mini

Hi all,

I searched the forum as well as Google and I was unable to find an answer to my question.

Regardless of how I disable WiFi,via the notification panel or in settings, it will turn itself back on and attempt to connect to various WiFi networks. Yes, I know if I use WiFi I'll save some data but this is mostly happening while I'm at work and the network it attempts to connect to is in the next building.

The only "solution" I have found is airplane mode.. Not really a solution as I want to continue to receive texts. Any suggestions?

Device info:
Samsung galaxy s4 mini (SCH-I435)
Android 4.2.2
Root status: Rooted

Thanks for the reply! Though in my first post I said that I tried the conventional methods of disabling wifi and it always turns itslef back on.

open settings then click on wifi "where it says tap to configure". uncheck "notify me". then click the menu button and choose "advanced". make sure "wifi notifications", and "auto network switch are disabled. then switch "kepp wifi on during sleep" to "never". that should do the trick.
