I have a Nokia 5800
The problem is that the WIFI never turns off!
It drains my battery and I need to find a way to turn it off
When I turn off the phone, it stops for awhile then starts the WIFI again
How can I turn off this feature?
Is there any software such as HandyWi that I can install to manage this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is it actually connecting, or just showing WLAN availability?
If connecting, you need to find what is connecting. The phone doesn't connect by itself for no reason, so some program must be requesting the connection (e-mail, weather app, etc.)
On the other hand, maintaining a WLAN connection (idle) doesn't use that much battery (unless the router is buggy), so if your battery is running out quickly, it probably means some program is actively using the connection (as well as the CPU, etc.)
Can you check which programs you have running and/or if/how you have configured the e-mail?
Thanks for this. I did get an answer from Nokia support ContactCentre.Europe@nokia.com which solved the problem:

This particular troubleshooting step above will help disable your mobile phone from connecting to the internet and WLAN.
Solved: No need to uninstall any good app. follow this
