    Default Straight Talk browser re-directed to odd 'home' page

    My staright talk ZTE Merrit phone (their AT&T service version) keeps starting on an odd page "m.tracfone.com/sid" that keeps trying to convince me to enter in my phone number because "Please not your browser experience has been enhanced. Complete the following steps soto finalize the update."

    It shows the Tracfone, Net10, Safelink and telcel logos on the top of the page and has a field below to enter the cell number.

    First: My assumption is that this is totally bogus, but has anyone else seen this?
    Second: How the H3ck do I get RID of this annoyance short of resetting the phone to factory settings? (Not that I have really modified it that much.. but still)

    Cool Re: Straight Talk browser re-directed to odd 'home' page

    I was looking for the same thing and found this. I hope it helps.
    "My name is Straight Talk Stephanie and I will be addressing your question. That is not a scam. The data service has been updated on the network's end and that is the way for the phone to receive the updates itself. Thanks!"

    My phone did that right out of the box, so I'm guessing it's legit.

    Samsung : SCH-S738C aka
    the Galaxy Centura
