    Android auto connects to wifi but I don't want that

    Sometimes I'll connect to a wifi. Then when I return to the same place again in the future, android connects to that wifi automatically.


    Is there a program that let's me connect to a wifi node but only that time and not have android remember it? This is very annoying when you connect to wifi that requres u to hit "I agree" in your web browser like the starbucks wifi.

    There's usually something in the settings to have it forget that connection. On the Evo, I can just long press on it and the options pop up.

    Beamed down to the earthlings, from my eVo!

    I would have to look at the device. Usually there is a setting that is overriding your wifi setting.

    You can get "quick settings" in market so you can manually turn it on/off.

    Tell it to forget the WiFi hotspot after you leave; it's a manual fix but it does work. You might be able to turn off the phone's ability to "remember" the hotspots in the WiFI settings, too.
