Constantly Pulling Up Public Wifi Login Pages
Anyone else noticed that OS 4.1 likes to constantly bring up public Wifi login pages even when you do not ask to be attached to that wifi network? It's EXTREMELY annoying, and even when I cancel it, it will bring up the page again seconds later. Very annoying downtown.

If the OP is speaking of the message to join networks then my previous post will work. Your phone will only join known networks and not pop up any messages.
If he/she is talking about logging in in safari then there is no setting to fix that.

I had this issue too. My iPhone was constantly asking if I wanted to join wi-fi networks if I was in an area where one was available, which is annoying when I am at work and surrounded by locked wi-fi networks from the stores around me. And it didn't just ask once, but every single time I tried to go online on my phone. I changed the "ask to join networks" setting to off and that fixed the issue. Now it automatically connects to my home network when I am at home and leaves me alone when I am out and about
This is what I am talking about, it pulls up a window over whatever I'm doing regardless of where I am, showing a login page. The same way it would if I had asked to join a public wifi network which requires a login, but I have NOT asked to join the network. It never did this before unless I selected the network from the popup list, but now it does it regardless.
I *like* the "Ask To Join Networks" feature. I *don't* like it trying to force me to sign in to a network I didn't ask to join.
