Default Browser HiJack?

So when I got my first smartphone (sequent) a few weeks ago I was able to go to this site:

I was able to surf there and read the page fine.

Now when I go there it the page starts to load then I'm sent to a game site.

Is this a virus on my phone or my ISP (boost) or the site?

I've never bought/downloaded an app, or did any updates.

Stock unit.

Any help appreciated!

Thanks

Site loads for me with ad blocking on and off, use a different browser like Firefox.

Not sure how I do that, with a browser?

or is there an app that comes on the phone for downloading apps?

Thanks

I'll do that, thanks.

So you think this url redirect is happening in the phone or on the way to the site?

Or on the site?

Do these phones get virus's?

Thanks Guys

It sounds like your browser home page was changed. Just go into settings and change it

I never go to the home page, it always opens where I left it.

Probably because it doesn't shut down most of the time. I don't see how to stop an app.

I installed firefox and it did the same thing.

The content has changed to another page.

I'm thinking this is a redirect from boost...

Or parental controls?

Or virus/malware.

Thanks
