    Hi,
    Like the title of my post says ... my phone tries to connect to WiFi and that leads to a massive battery drain and overheating.

    Once connected to WiFi, the phone becomes stable.

    This is especially true for hotspots that require additional authentication such as a RADIUS / username password to be put in on a Web page, like at an airport, etc

    Has anyone seen this with their PRIV?

    Any settings I can toggle to make my phone NOT turn into a frying pan?

    The only solution I have is to disable WiFi if I'm not in range of any known WiFi hotspots.

    You have found the only answer. Shut off WiFi unless you are in range of one you know. The issue is the 808 processor.

    Like the man said. I ONLY turn on my WiFi if I'm doing updates. That's it.

    I had to buy a larger data plan, but it was worth it because in the rural area that I live in the LTE cellular network is faster than residential WiFi.
