    I am getting notifications suddenly and in parenthesis says can opt out. I have no idea how I started getting them. I have deleted all apps I recently downloaded and still getting it. I only get apps from the android and Amazon markets. Anyone else have this annoying issue?

    If there is spam in the notification bar and you're not sure which app is causing it then download Airpush Detector from the market. I seen in another thread its supposed to be really good and catching apps that spam. I personally haven't had to use it yet.

    Comes in as a notification on the notification bar. Not in text form. Airpush app never worked

    So far so good. So the two wallpapers from android market were the culprits. Don't download live night fall wallpaper and horses with snow wallpaper. They come loaded with spam.

    No need to be so uptight about this.
    A minor issue. I found the culprit on my phone. Two live wallpapers I had from android market of all places. Removed and all is fine

    I was having this same problem. I had a different method of fixing the issue though. I went to Xapush.com on my computer and did the manual opt-out. It asks for your IMEI, so I put that in and it seems to have worked.

    If you don't know where to find your IMEI, dial " *#06# " and a message will appear with it (not a text message).

    Same issue here. AirPush Detector cleaned it up. mp3 Downloader was the culprit.
    Wanted to opt out of all xapush.com but was not comfortable giving them my numbers.

    I also have been experiencing problems with ADs from xapush and hopefully resolved problem just installed Addons Detector and it found that a live wall paper app i had was the problem WHY? Sorry but I have not a clue but the Addons Detector isnt just good for that after you install it goes to black screen says tap the screen to start analysis and it scans all your apps in your phone(i have htc inspire)scans them and gives you a list of your apps that are potential addons (problems) but also gives you choice at top to filter Disabled, Advertising, Analytics, Developer tools,Licensing,Social Gaming,and finally problem i ran into Push Notifications you click on one and it will give you which apps are causing problems. So now you have choice whether live with it just getting an ad or basically you have to uninstall app This was installed on 11-28-2011 4:30pm Hope this will be able to help other people

    right.... except giving them your imei number is invasive. It is information that identifies your handset.
