How do I permanently disable—switch off—the auto enabled WiFi?
Reopening this question since previous threads have been archived without satisfactory resolution. Best discussion was on this thread.
I get that auto-enabled WiFi is a feature. And I’m not trying to take away from RW’s bottom line by jumping onto a cell network. I am in an area with NO cell reception. Connection with the outside world happens ONLY with WiFi via a satellite dish. But neither am I concerned with getting calls. Callers can leave me a message on Google Voice and I’ll get back to them at my convenience…and I will turn on WiFi to do so.
The point is, I would prefer to go for days with no WiFi connection along with non-existent cell connection. But my phone is always with me because I listen to audio books and podcasts all day…previously downloaded when I consciously made a WiFi connection to the outside world. This worked beautifully on my Moto X 2nd Gen with Android 5.1. But my new Moto X Pure with Android 6.0 insists on second-guessing my choice of remaining disconnected. It auto-enables WiFi when I reboot each morning.
