    one thing you can do but it will take time, is to do a search and read the reviews on each app installed. with the type of popups you are getting, there will be a lot of complaints.

    I have seen some app reviews that say "app not work" and it works great for me. Or "app work great" and it crashes your phone. I wish reviews would require more specific details.

    yes there will be a lot of that but there will be some that is a bit more specific. it is still worth a shot since even if a restore was done, reinstalling the same apps will result in installing the popup again.

    I'm wondering if these are somehow connected with landline spam calls. Some of my android spam stuff is same as landline spam. I have already filled up my 250 blocked numbers on my landline phone system and these are from 12/29/2017 last date.
    Very frustrating there also.

    remember when you install apps, you give a lot of permissions including your phone numbers, contact list etc...

    If you can verify the ads are gone start adding them back one or two at a time. Hopefully the ads will stop for you, that has to be frustrating.

    I thought about letting the ads go, until i was driving with maps running and when i needed to see the map (hands free) all i could see is an ad.

    Thanks for all the help. Hopefully this does it. I'll report back later today.much appreciated!

    my guess would be the barcode scanner is the problem but...
