    Anyone getting this? I already deleted it so I cant take a screen shot. Basically it comes up something like "+ Winner, you've been chosen to be the WINNER of an iPad..."

    Why am i getting this and how do i stop it?

    Oh yea, and does anyone know when NFL MOBILE is actually going to work? It'll probably fix after the season, LOL!;

    Othr than that, loving this phone!!!


    Thanks for the help!

    I have that notification too. Mine is from an app called mp3 music download.

    If you're rooted, AdFree would probably get rid of it too

    I was getting them on my Bionic and figured out it was coming from a GoLauncher 3rd party theme. I used an app called Addons Detector to find the culprit. AirPush Detector also does the job.

    Tap'd from my G'Nex
