Re: Pop Up Ads

When daily pedometer app updates, it is virus app. The original version is not, however the app developers decided to hijack your lockscreen and install myriad apps without permission. REMOVE DAILY PEDOMETER. it also hides its own I on in the drag up menu of your apps. Remove it from app manager. (Former app dev here)

Re: Pop Up Ads

Uninstall Daily Pedometer.  I have hated my Cricket experience for 3 months. ads all day everyday. Finally took advice from forum member and uninstalled daily pedometer and ive been ad free for 24 hours.  Too bad it wasnt Cricket that offered the solution.

Re: Pop Up Ads

If you havent already figured out how to get rid of them, uninstall Daily Pedometer.  After 3 months of hating my LG X charge from Cricket i can finally enjoy my phone without those horrible full screen popups.   Cricket should be ashamed for not responding to this issue better. This solution worked for me.

Re: Pop Up Ads

I 100% agree! I took your advice to uninstall Daily Pedometer and after 3 months of these full screen and audio ads I am finally ad free for 24 hours.  Thanks to you but not to Cricket whose response to this issue thread has been less than helpful.

Re: Pop Up Ads

My pop up adds started as soon as I set up my phone. I had not even added any apps yet.

Re: Pop Up Ads

I had pop up adds start as soon as I turned on my phone and hooked up to WiFi.. I hadn't even downloaded any apps yet. Plus, I used the same exact apps that I used on another phone with a different carrier. Had no problems. They are popping up ALL the time. Whether I'm using my phone or its just sitting there.

Re: Pop Up Ads

Went into my local cricket store and they uninstalled "IDLE KNIFE" app and all pop-up ads (that I had been dealing with for MONTHS) finally disappeared.

Re: Pop Up Ads

I went into cricket store and she uninstalled IDLE KNIFE app and all popups FINALLY disappeared forever -- after months of trying all sorts of other things I had read on a number of forums -- as simple as that!

Re: Pop Up Ads

As far as these phones being infected and government-issued I think we need to go to the government and let them know what's going on cuz they are getting paid
