    Default Endless Download of Random Photo Despite Hard Reset-- Help!

    A friend of mine has a Droid Incredible 2 (ADR 6350). Over the past few days it has been downloading some random photo every 15 minutes, saving a new version in her Gallery each time. She installed anti-virus software and it found nothing, then she uninstalled suspect apps (she doesn't have many on the phone)-- did nothing. Then (and this is the part that really confuses me), she did a factory reset and wiped everything but the SD card. Sure enough, it kept downloading the random photo every 15 minutes once it was setup again (and with no non-core apps re-installed). So odd. It is some photo for a flooding house, she has no idea what it is from. Any ideas for what could possibly be causing this and why even a full factory reset didn't fix it?

    BTW, it does stop when she puts the phone in airplane mode and kills the data connection.
