    Hello all,

    I'm new to AC and I'm here to ask if anyone else gets full screen ads on their phones. I've run a bunch of virus scans and nothing seems to come up, and I've uninstalled nearly every app that I think could've been the source of the problem (even GO SMS). I'll post a screenshot as an example of what I'm seeing. These only started about a week or two ago, and went from once a day to every few hours.

    I've got a Verizon Droid DNA, running 4.2.2.

    Any suggestions on how to handle this?

    Tried downloading Airpush Detector, and it couldn't detect anything.

    It was GO SMS.

    I don't think Go SMS was the app causing this. Clearly you have not uninstalled the one that did it. My first suspect would be a free game of some sort. Also, sometimes uninstalling an app does not clean everything up. You might want to install an app that cleans up the mess. I currently use Clean Master.
