To find out which app is pushing ads you need to "long press" on the advertisement itself which should tell you which app is the culprit.
From there you can disable or uninstall the app in Settings/Applications.
If the offending app is a system app you will have to enable Developer options and use ADB to either disable or remove the app from your user directory.
I must be a little slow because I can't figure out how to start a new post...but I followed the guys advice and went to the OPT out thing...FOUND my ad number (ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUSLY LONG NUMBER) and put it in, maybe this will work maybe not...but I just paid my bill TODAY and will NOT be paying the next one, I will take GREAT PRIDE in SMASHING the phone I have on the pavement when I get my new phone and plan in 3 weeks...thanks a lot for nothing Cricket...nice commercials though...
Yeah, It started on my phone last week. It is pissing me off for all the same reasons the op stated. Make them stop or I will just leave you.
Why did you make it a private message? There are more than just him dealing with this prob. Make it public so we can all get rid of this trash.
Cell Phones, Plans and Service from Cricket
Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
2. Decide how satisfied you are with your current cell phone
"Bring Your Own Phone" BYOP - If you want to keep your phone, bring it to Cricket - just make sure it's unlocked and compatible with our network.
