Some think it’s handy, some think it’s the most annoying thing ever.
I fall into the later group. It is nothing less than infuriating when my iOS devices prompt me to join every wi-fi network in a 100 meter radius.
And with more and more wireless hotspots popping up in people’s homes and businesses the prompts just get more frequent.
Here’s how to disable those prompts:
1. Tap Settings
2. Tap Wi-Fi
3. Set Ask to Join Networks toggle switch to OFF
This works nicely on any iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with Wi-FI (which is eh, all of em).
I just tested it right now on an iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.3.3.
