How to stop annonying app of the day popups

I have been unable to find a solution on line to stop the annonying app of the day pop-ups.  Then are now even coming into my email.  I removed all app access to my BB.  I have the BB bold 9650.  I've been waiting for the new devices, but if this keeps up, I may ditch the whole thing.

Re: How to stop annonying app of the day popups

Check the messages - there may be an unsubscribe link in the bottom of the message. If there isn't can you list your third party apps here? We can see if there are any that could be the culprit, in which case, deleting the app may help, or you may need to contact the developer directly for assistance.

If you already deleted the potentially offending apps, list off a couple of the "app of the days" that are being suggested as this can help us narrow down who the developer likely is so that you can find their contact info.

Hopefully we can get this resolved for you!

Re: How to stop annonying app of the day popups

Similar to what the others have said...

 

It is a specific free app you've downloaded, I don't know which one.

You'll need to completely delete that app from your BlackBerry, when you determine which it is.

 

The messages you're getting.. note the app publisher and and then compare that to the free apps you have installed.

Re: How to stop annonying app of the day popups

I have not downloaded any free apps.  It must have come in with an upgrade.  I've deleted everything app but the few I've been using for a long time.  Now, I am getting the gold star on the status bar to tell me about a new app.  This spam is terrible.

Re: How to stop annonying app of the day popups

At Options > Advanced > Applications, what all do you have installed?

Re: How to stop annonying app of the day popups

I have a BB 9650.

 

Under options -> third party applications

 

The only one installed is BeBuzz Free.  Do you think that is the one?

Re: How to stop annonying app of the day popups

Yep, I do.


Probably, lol.

 

Look at the publisher of BeBuzz free and then at the starred notification... are they the same developer or app publisher?

The publisher of the app messages is Parachute moble.  How do I get rid of them?

Re: How to stop annonying app of the day popups

I found the app. It was Gdocs by parachute mobile.  I surely hope I do not see any more ads tomorrow am.
