Bug Description

Ubuntu Trusty r188
Ubuntu Trusty r303

1. Go to System Settings > Wi-Fi.
2. If Wi-Fi is on, turn it off.

What you see: "Auto-join previous networks" by itself.

What you should see: A "When Wi-Fi is on:" introductory label.
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Networking#wi-fi-phone>

Without an introductory label, it's unclear that the setting works only when Wi-Fi is on.
