    I was wondering if someone else can help me find out what is going on with my phone.

    Every day for the past 3 days I've gotten an ad in my notification bar that says "Wonderful Magazine - WonderWall is a stylish digital magazine". I refuse to click it. I have no idea where it came from.

    I looked it up online and I guess it's part of MSN? The only thing MSN I have is the messenger but I got that when it first came out. Why would it start now?

    Download lookout and let it scan your phone. See if anything malware comes up.

    Can you take a picture of what the notification icon look like?

    It may be something in your email that is showing up there.

    It's an Exclamation point and that's it. I hit my clear to make it go away so I can't take a picture of it but I think I'm going to reboot the phone and try to recreate it by opening apps. Sounds lame but it only shows up when I'm messing with my phone.

    I have an app called Quick Uninstaller and I think an ad appears in the bar when I open it. An ad supported app is probably to blame. But probably no big deal.

    Just had the same ad come up on my phone.

    Last four apps installed were:

    eBay
    First Aid
    Findagram
    aCircuit Board

    Any correlation?

    I have that and you know what, I bet that was it!
    OMG OMG I just opened it to see if I got the ad again and I did.

    This app is going the way of the trash right now! UGH! I am disgusted!

    Write a review on it's market page so others know about it, too.

    I have been getting this same ad since Sunday, its for MSN Wonderwall by Reading geeker. Clicking on on the ad takes you to the market page. I have don't have Quick Uninstaller or any other apps newly installed and this developer only has this one app. I didn't see any another apps or unexpected processes running when it popped up either.


    I forgot to put that I did a lookout scan and zero viruses were found also.

    I have this ad as well. Any idea how to get rid of this notification. I do not have Quick Uninstaller or the other apps you mentioned. No viruses found.
