    Credit card notification?

    Did anyone else get a credit card offer show up in their notifications? My girlfriend and I both got it, on different phone models. I'm trying to figure out where it came from. If it was pushed to the phones by Cricket, an app, or if someone found another way to push an offer to phones. It showed up as a green + in the notifications on my Mercury.

    It's probably Spam. Normally when you download apps, if you aren't careful, you will get these... You can download AirPush Detector in the Android Market and it will pinpoint which app is sending you this Spam.

    Let us know how it works.

    Yeah, I think it was probably an application. You never know, it could be doing something else too. If you can find out which application it is, you might want to delete it.

    Unless it is an application that shows advertisements.. If it is showing advertisements then that's just how they pay to keep it free.

    Definitely check out what knewsom32 mentioned. There was an article about it not too long ago also.

    AirPush Detector didn't find anything. The thing that really bugs me is, I gave my girlfriend my Zio after I did a reset. She got it activated yesterday. I got my Mercury on Saturday. We really don't have any common apps installed other than the Cricket apps, and I removed some of the preinstalled crap off of the Zio, like the games and the Cricket Storefront. I can't think of any app we have installed in common, other than the Cricket MyBackup that could do that. The fact that it showed up as a app notification, not an SMS message really bugs me.
