Yes you CAN Detach from a Wifi Connection

You might have read one of my complaints under Some Observations, you would have read that once you connect to a Wifi source that you don't like (perhaps it doesn't work properly), that there was no easy way to detach from it.

Well, when getting into the Settings on my iPhone during the DevTalk, I found that there was an option to do this! Funny, I didn't see it there before!

It could be:

  • I'm blind in one eye and can't see out the other and it was there all along.
  • It was added to my iPhone as a result of the recent patch Apple sent down (I choose to believe this one)!

How To:

  • Press the one and only button on the bottom of your iPhone to take you to the main "page."
  • Press the displayed Settings button.
  • Tap the Wi-Fi option.
  • Under Choose a Network... will be listed you Wifi networks. The one you are using will be checked.
  • Press the little arrow in the blue dot over to the right of the network entry. Detailed information will slide into view for this network entry.
  • There will be a nice big button at the top of the page labeled: Forget this Network
  • Press it!
  • You will be prompted with a red Forget Network button and a gray Cancel button.
  • If you want to go for it, Tap the Forget Network button, else tap the Cancel button to leave it alone.

There! Now you know!
