I have an iPhone 4s with the latest software update. Under settings>wi-fi>ask to join networks.. It is turned off.
If I am at home , the iPhone 4s will join my secured home network automatically , every time I walk in the door.
But, when I walk into work, it will not AUTOMATICALLY join an open unsecured known network. I always have to go to settings>wi-fi>and manually touch "linksys" and it will join.
I have ran some tests with my iPhone and iPad side by side at work....
With both devices connected to the open linksys network, I will turn wi-Fi off on both devices, then turn it back on. The iPad will automatically rejoin the linksys open network every time, the iPhone does not automatically join. I always have to select it manually.
I have tried several remedies... I have selected "forget this network", and then rejoined it. I have reset my network settings. I have turned the "ask to join networks switch "on and off". And I have done a hard reset on the phone. All to no avail. Any suggestions???
What happens if you turn 'ask to join networks' on (and leave it on)?
