    Guys, I stayed at a hotel and was using their wifi. I will not be going back here anytime soon. Is there an option to delete the hotels wifi network like I can delete networks in windows?

    I done see an option for this in the safari settings.

    Yes.. You can do it.. Go to Settings... Then Wi-Fi... There you will see that network name... touch the small arrow on right hand side... you will get details about the network... on top of that page.. you will have "Forget this network"

    However, as far as I know Iphone never try to show used networks not in range...

    Sorry maybe I worded wrong, I can't see the hotels network, but in windows I can delete networks I won't be using or don't want anymore under wifi properties. I was curious if there's something like this on the iPhone.

    This is the way to get rid of the network. If you want it again you have to be in range and then select it again :)

    I'm pretty sure v2 will have this option.

    There's really no reason to delete it, everything will work fine with those extra known networks.

    Has this feature become available in the meantime?

    Can you delete Wifi settings, like passcode or just everything about a previous network setup when the network itself is no longer available, i.e. does not appear on the list of networks anymore? How?

    Many thanks.

    For an iPhone iOS 5.1 does Settings / General / Reset / Reset Network Settings, achieve the desired result? Although removes all Wifi Profiles.
