    So this orange chat icon keeps popping up saying I have a new friend request. However when I click on it, it takes me to Go SMS, and and not whatever this app is saying I have the friend request. I thought this might be AT&T Chat On so I disabled that but it's still showing up in any suggestions?
    Edit: it won't won't load the pic but it's an orange chat bubble with an exclamation mark in it.

    Never saw that i my phone. Try restarting the phone, and see if that does it.

    You installed an app that uses airpush. There is an app called air blocker for that.

    It seems like a legitimate friend request but I've never used this app before. Ok got the screen shot loaded. Any suggestions?

    If you're on Jelly Bean, tap and hold the notification, then tap app info.

    Thanks, that helped me determine that it was in fact Go SMS but now I can't figure out how to respond to this friend request. I'm simply using Go SMS to replace the default SMS app so I was unaware of friend requests via this app.

    Maybe it's "Go chat"? Maybe someone who is using Go chat is inviting you to use it. If you go into go sms and slide the screen to the left, you will see go chat. If you want to use it, create a profile. If not, go to settings and tap on" running mode", hit normal mode and you won't have go chat anymore, just the regular gosms part. Hopefully this helps.

    Well it looks like the problem has been fixed. getting in Go SMS, and clearing some of the options labeled "new" seemed to help a lot. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Makaroni, thanks so much for your post on disabling GoChat from 6 months ago. I searched for quite awhile before finding your message which solved my problem. I all of a sudden was getting friends added with names like "Venus" and "Velvet". Oh, brother.
