Photon does not start (well) without WIFI

I am having an issue where if I build an application and the photon is on network A and I take the project to a friends house and start it, it waits a REALLY long time before it decides to start (I added a beeper & LED so I could verify when it starts the setup). Also if my home network is off I get the same issue. The Photon flashes green and the application does not start (or does after a long timeout) Is this expected behavior? Is there anything I can do? The project needs to function with or without the internet due to spotty carrier performance.

Check the docs for either different systems modes or the beta system threading, it’s under reference -> firmware. Either should work.
