    If you go to your web browser, into settings, and into website settings you see a website called a.ringleaderdigital.com.

    What is that?

    Looks like RingLeader Digital is a mobile advertising company. Not sure why it is there, as I don't have the listing on my phone (I only have Google.com for individual website settings).

    I'm assuming you visited a site that had an ad from RingLeader or possibly clicked one of their ads. Maybe it stores a cookie on your browser as to what settings it should use, or it asked you to use your location (as the entry for Google.com only allows me to remove location data).

    It's an ad-serving and click-tracking service for mobile web.

    Have you installed any Apps?

    I would like to know if the adware came from an app I installed or was helpfully included by AT&T.

    This same thing shows up in my website settings, and of the apps you listed, I have Pandora, FoxNews and Home Dock as well, so it sounds like one of those three probably puts this in there. It also could be put in there from clicking an ad inside an app, I did this once just to see what happened.

    Hum, out of those apps the only app that my wife has that is the same as us is Pandora. I wonder if they run the ad service for Pandora.
