if you factory reset your device then the program would definitely NOT be on the handset. you most likely did not do a full wipe of the phone.

go into your app store on your device and see if you see "open" and/or "uninstall".

To disable, open up go sms, go to basic setting, click running mode and choose either lite mode or normal mode. Disables go chat all together.

I don't want to get spam texts/emails. I don't want the app at all. Even when uninstalled I'm still getting spam in my notification bar for dating apps. They never did this before. Now I don't even know if it's my.email or my number that's being slammed.

Are you even sure that its Go SMS giving you the spam on the notification bar? I got the latest updates for Go SMS. Even Addon Detector says Go SMS is clean.

Exactly, I've been using go products for 2 years, not 1 push ad has came from them. I'd love to know what makes people think they get them from go products. Get an ad/spam detector

Yeah, if you are seeing ads jn the notification area that means a currently installed app is serving them. If it were texts or emails it could be some outfit you gave your details to, but this sounds like push advertising.

Use Addons Detector, Airpush Detector or Lookout Ad Network Detector to identify the culprit and uninstall that.

I should add that I'm referring to Curly's problem here - don't know whether the OP is seeing the same thing.

I got push spam from someone who put up a skin for GO. I had no spam until I tried out the skin (think it had a setup I liked). Deleted the skin, no more spam. If you are using skins, check them.

Also got rid of GO as I didn't quite care for some of the "cutesy" "cool" things they were adding.

And this is why we read comments from play store before installing.

Also to note: "broinicthemes" dev who creates themes for Go is the only dev that uses push ads for their themes. All other devs don't.

Im going to try the suggestions. I thought I was subscribed to this, and just came to check out the post. It is go pro because after downloading the app, within a minute of the sign up process I started getting adds in my notification bar as well as texts from the 502 number. My mistake was adding my phone number and email. It appeared to be a requirement at initial setup. Took me forever to remove my email and number from the account, but still cant figure out how to delete go pro sms account. Ill be back to report.

Downloaded addons. Which addons should I delete? I deleted the ones with push notifications. There are several add ons in total.
