Can we have a way to block open cable hotspots?

    You know what I'm talking about, it's annoying AF when your phone connects to XfinityWiFi, or AttWiFi, or TWCwifi, or whoever you have in your area. Sure those are nice if you have a subscription with them, but if you don't your phone sometimes connects to it and it really has no internet connection.

    How about:
    Along side of "Forget" network, we have the option to "block all hotspots with this same SSID"?

    That or something like that would be nice.

    It automatically connects to these networks? without you even tapping on them?

    yeah, because Auto was enabled.

    I am on a plan on which the less data I use, the cheaper my bill is. unlimited talk and text, but I pay
    $1 per 100mb (or $10 per GB....up to 6gb then it becomes unlimited.... sounds strange but honestly i usually only pay 35 or less per month). So I try to use WiFi where ever possible. Having an option which automatically connects to the closes wifi without my interaction would be nice. This phone DOES have that if you didnt disable it. the downside is that it will connect to these bulshit hotspots which only have internet if you have a subscription.

    As such, I think it would be very useful to have a blacklist feature which will not allow the phone to automatically connect to any hot spots matching the SSIDs on that blacklist.
