After manually upgrading to ICS on Saturday, I noticed that I have been receiving seemingly random advertisements as notifications. (Employment ads, mortgage refinancing ads, ads for apps, etc.) I keep thinking I must have an e-mail, but when I pull down the notifications bar, I see an advertisement. If I click on the notification, it might launch the browser or the app store, and it tends to PUT A NEW ICON ON MY HOME SCREEN.
So I have obviously stopped clicking on any of them. (I was just hoping to learn where they came from so I could stop them)
Has anyone else been slammed with ads as notifications? Any idea how to stop them? I have been looking thru all of the phone settings for a privacy setting, an opt-out, etc., to no avail. If this is just a fact of life with ICS, I will happily downgrade to Gingerbread again. Might finally be time to start learning how to root & install custom ROMs.
Thanks in advance...
