1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have the DroiD Eris and have a message pop up from a "badgirl_xxx19@mcjabber.de" that is not an email or a message. It will NOT go away no matter what I do. So...what Can I do???

    Probably a virus I'm sure and I am NOT opening it. And also, the notification sound keeps going off. SICK of it.

    Thank you in advance.

    Could be a virus. Install an antivirus app. Could also be a push notification from some app you installed recently. Any "fishy" apps?

    Try the antivirus. Worse comes to worst you may have to factory reset.

    It sounds like it may be Google Talk. Go into the Talk app and sign out. Also, while in there, go into menu->settings and turn off any notifications for friend requests, etc.

    You bet. Definitely worth saving you from a factory reset.
