    Look I am sorry if this has been posted and answered before....but how in the heck do I get these messages from dating chat sites and offers from credit card company's to stop....and how in the heck did they get my info??? I've only clicked on one CC company message thinking it would take me to texting so I could reply STOP....but nooooo it took me straight to a website...so now every day and weee in the AM I am getting these things....so when your husband/boyfriend wife or girlfriend gets these dating messages,...when they say they have no idea....give em a break....chances r they r telling the trueth.....

    So back to my question...how do I get them to stop when its not even coming through my text messaging...and I haven't been on the I internet in forever....can this be part of the do not call list?( which I know only last 6 months, I think)...
    Thanks for the input and sorry for the mini b¡†©¿ fit

    It is most likely an app. Try downloading and running airpush detector from the market. It will tell you which one.
    Are they text messages or just messages showing up in your notification bar?

    They're just showing up in the notification bar with a star, can I use this app even if I'm not rooted?

    Looking at the description of the app it does not mention root access being required.

    It does not require root.
    I'm gonna guess it is some music download program.

    I was getting a bunch of spam notifications also, and always with the little star icon. I installed Air Push Detector, it found what app was sending them. I uninstalled the app and have not had a single bit of spam since.

    What I didn't realize is that even apps you might have installed a long time ago, may have updated the permissions to include the spam. And if you don't dissect every update completely, it could easily sneak past.
