    After i make a call, instead of seeing the contact, or the home screen, i am being presented with a advertisement... a hyper link at the top and a graphic filling the screen, for like "wallpapers" and other apps. this is no doubt due to a app i have installed, just not sure which one, seeing if anyone has any ideas.

    First I hear of this...funny picture though. Could the ad be related to some App you have installed?

    home - menu - settings - applications - manage applications - menu - filter - running

    see if you can identify the app that's running that's causing this.

    That's interesting (and annoying). Did you install any apps that affected your call screen(s)? I'm running the "Not Call Log" app to return the phone directly to the HomeScreen and it doesn't do that but I'm assuming you installed something similar to try to get the same result??

    thats not from an app i believe. i had that happening to me all the time when i first got my droid. since then it has stopped doing that. but i believe that its a google add. that google used to push those through.

    really!? well thats pretty lame.

    i uninstalled everything i had recently installed, and it seems to have subsided. so maybe it was coincidence...
    I'm slowly re-installing everything to see if i can catch a correlation... between one of them and the ads.

    google doesn't push advertising unless you've had an app installed that does so. there are no advertisements on a completely stock phone.
