    Anyone else having an issue with the Ask To Join Networks option in settings? It doesn't do anything. Am I missing something?

    It doesn't ask me to join a network, when no known networks are available.

    There has to be networks detected in order for it to ask you to join them.

    Let me start this again, maybe I wasn't clear about my issue. In Settings, WiFi I have the "Ask to Join Network" is enabled.

    Every once in a while my iPhone will connect to one of the various other another WiFi networks in my neighborhood without asking me if I want to join it. Then I have to click that network and press "Forget this Network" and join my home WiFi network again. Shouldn't I be getting some sort of prompt about joining a network other than the one I set my iPhone up with? If I turned "Ask to Join Networks" off, then I could understand it doing this.

    Sorry for my misunderstanding. Are the network names the same? Have you tried a restore? Have you tried Forgetting YOUR network? Please let me know how these things work.
