    My Lumia 635 does not have a data plan as I use it as a music player and other non-phone stuff. I have not been able to get wifi to turn on automatically at/near my home as a favorite place. Neither would it turn off searching for wifi after I leave my home. First, is it do-able without a data connection? If yes, what are the exact steps to do turn wifi off after I leave home and turn it back on after I am there?
    thanks

    In the Settings you may select known wifi networks and enable the option connect to these known wifi networks. I am using such configuration and it works. I think it should work the same even without data plan.

    Thanks but unfortunately that does not seem to work for me. I have set my home wifi as the default network to connect to when wifi is turned on. I have also set "turn wifi back on near my favorite place" with home being one of my favorite places. From reading other posts, it almost seems like Cortana needs to be connected to data so that a reminder can be set to turn on wifi before it would work. If that is the case, I am out of luck as I don't have a data connection. Did you have to set anything in Cortana to get it to work? Also, could you try turning off your data connection and see if it still works? Thanks in advance.

    Just leave the wifi on all the time. Nothing wrong with that. Cortana is a cloud service. So it will require internet connection to work.

    I discovered a couple of days ago that I can ask Cortana, "Turn Wi-Fi on", and she'll activate my Wi-Fi connection saying, "Wi-Fi is now on". I did not have my SIM in the phone.
