    Re: samsung galaxy s 3 wifi

    Is there an app running that requires wi-fi to run that could be turning it on?

    It might be set to connect to wifi whenever 3G or 4G is unavailable, that's exactly what I have mine set to do so I always have single somehow

    If you're still having this problem, before you do anything, hold the Home key down for a few seconds which will bring up all your opened apps. Shut them all down and then continue on from there!

    There is a company called DeviceScape that can allow carriers to turn on WiFi if it is off, and automatically connect the phone to WiFi networks. I'm not sure if your phone or carrier has them enabled, but it is possible for the carriers to do that.
