IF YOU WANT ANYTHING ADDED JUST PM ME AND I WILL ADD IT AND GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE. THANKS!



This will remove that annoying little Wifi Reminder. I have tested this on my phone with 0 issues.

•You will need root
•You will a SQLite editor




1.Open Settings Storage > db > secure
2.Search for “wifi_networks_available_notification_on” (different providers will be different line numbers)
3.Edit that record to read a value of 0 < (that's a ZERO)
4.Reboot your phone

How to remove WIFI Popup Notification:
Open anycut.

Click 'new shortcut'

Click 'activity'

Click 'HiddenMenuWifiOffload'

use new home screen shortcut to turn it off

Thanks to tillithz

for some reason this did not work for me...

I am testing a kernel so that could be the cause. my phone booted kinda wired restarted like 3 times. one of those into the recovery.
after it came back up i went into the market and i got that dumb notice that wifi is available.
so I checked the settings, and it still said 0...

but again i think is cause of the custom kernel so that this with a grain of salt.

Only the "Any Cut" shortcut workaround works for me.

You may want to add a link to the free SQLite Editor here http://code.google.com/p/xdroidx/dow...20Editor-9.apk

Also Update your post to say this only takes care of the notification not the WiFi pop-up. To eliminate the WiFi pop-up when opening apps you need to use any cut or similar to create a link to " hiddenmenuwifioffloading" and then disable it.

That is because that eliminates the pop-up!

The op is talking about the constant notification under "ongoing" in the notification pull down. They are two separate things and require two method to eliminate.

I'm not sure if this belongs in Development or in Q&A, but regardless, this tutorial needs to be somewhere, as everyone asks about this constantly.

Also, OP, I would suggest updating your post to have the methods of removing both the ongoing notification and the pop-up, so we can help people get rid of Verizon's nonsense.

I'm all for responsible use of data, but spamming us with a pop-up on every app launch is not the way to handle things.

In your launcher, add a shortcut via the standard long-press method. For the shortcut's target, select Any Cut.

From here you will have four options. Select "Activity". From here, scroll down to the "H" area (they're alphabetized) until you find a value called "HiddenMenuWifiOffload" and select it.

Then, open your new shortcut from your launcher. Select "Disable" and press "Okay" at the bottom, then you can use Back or Home to exit out.

You may need to restart for this to take effect (not sure), but this should disable the pop-up when launching apps.
