    It just started today. I was updating some aps, and I believe it started when I clicked to open Flickie Wallpapers. Now anything I click on causes it to connect to my web browser and start playing a video. I don't know if my phone has a virus or what. The name of the website that is constantly popping up is "iVdopia WAP ads demo". It is soooo annoying because I cannot do anything on my phone now! I don't won't to have to wipe out everything only to reinstall it again. Please help!!!


    I just now had to turn my phone off because it will not stop.

    I had this issue with one of my apps. I contacted the developer and he found that it was an old ad server that he used to used in a prior version. Contract developer and see if this is the case. I had to uninstall and reinstall and everything was fine. Don't mean to state the obvious but if it has a database remember to backup your data.
