Come on Telstra Please. What I can not understand is why the Telstra Air app wants to log on to the Telstra Air hotspot of my own modem. Surely the software developers would have realised that nobody would want to do this and it is an annoyance. You would think that you could set an exclusion for your own hotspot and that the exclusion would be by default. I have turned off “autoconnect” and “notifications”.
Developers, please fix.

Forum: re – stop mobile selecting telstra air when in my own network are:-

This is a recurring problem which I have just floated on the Apple Communities help board.

The following computer forum suggestions apply to iPhones and Macs only

For iPhones is to go:

  1.  Settings
  2.  Tap Wi-Fi
  3.  Tap on the little blue “i” in the circle next to Telstra Air
  4.  Tap on “Forget this network”

However, this means that you will need to manually join Telstra Air when out and in range.

For those with a Mac, the solution is more elegant, as you can set the Wi-Fi selection priority:

  1.  Tap on the Wi-Fi “Rainbow”
  2. Tap on “Open Network Preferences”
  3.  Tap on “Advanced…”
  4. A list of known networks will appear. At this point I suggest that you take a few minutes to clean up old and redundent networks by:

> Tap on an old network to highlight

> Tap on the “-” sign (Repeat these two steps for other unwanted networks)


> Tap and Hold on your preferred network and drag to the top, repeat this step until you have your networks in your preferred order
