Apple preferred Wi-Fi network

Does anyone know if there is a way to stop apple from auto connecting wifi networks. Example: I connect my iPad to my shop's wifi which is used to connect a wifi enable till system not for browsing the internet. My phone which has no reason to connect to my shops wifi decides it want's to also connect to this wifi network. It's very irritating if you don't notice that it has hopped on to this network as it's obviously not going to received any emails or iMessages when it's joined network that is not connected to the internet. Is there away around this?

IOS devices auto-connect to known networks, i.e. those to which they have connected in the past. If you don't want that, you can manually remove the wireless networks from the devices (i.e. forget the network) or implement some MAC address filtering on your wifi network to prevent undesired devices from connecting.

Tried that, the irritation with forgetting a network on the iPhone means the iPad also forgets the the network but the one that it needs to remember. It's lacking a forget the network on this device button. Just thought someone might know away around it. I could implement the MAC address filtering at the shop but, there are other routers that I am not able to do this on... thanks..
