    Default Can I turn off all the junk notifications?

    I do not mind the email notifications and have set it to have them there at the top of the screen. But every day I get notifications that seem like spam or junkmail. It seems like its from sprint or some other "authorized" sender. But I do not want to get them.
    Can I turn them off? Thanks

    Start checking your apps. Some "free" apps have done this. They'll advertise other games or updates and stuff without any way to turn them off.

    Have you recently installed anything before these started?

    That app worked for me on my old Evo. It was the music downloader app. I deleted and never had another problem

    Only junk notification you'll get from a stock phone is Sprint Zone.

    Here's an app from Lookout that will find more than just airpush Ads:

    Very useful if you're getting any sort of Spam. I used it after a free app was actually adding shortcuts to my desktop. That got me quite upset.

    You have to go into settings from your computer, log into facebook. Go to your acct, and moble settings in the right hand corner. I copied some info below. I had the same problem and it was driving me nuts, I just played around on my laptop under my acct settings. Look for moble settings, click on them and it will turn them off, that is the on I hope this will help you.
