    Use this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.brosmike.airpushdetector&hl=en to tell you what apps are pushing advertisement to your phone. Then uninstall apps that are sending the notification; but I think you don't have to uninstall the app with MIUI. There a app in MIUI that you can disable push notification(and other settings) for apps; maybe it was firewall or security. It was a app in MIUI...
    There might be non-MIUI app that can do the same thing though...

    Good looking ROM :ciao: another app you can check out is AdAway that may kill the ad on that app along with any other app that bugs with popups and banners. I found that gem from lifehacker.

    there is also from what ive been seeing on the web a large amount of text message spams or people trying to steal personal info and it seems to be linking back to facebook, if you have facebook and you install the facebook app it auto uploads your mobile number for everyone to see, unless you change it


    i got a text from a crazy number yesterday claiming that i won $1000 best buy gift card

    quick google search revealed to me that Alot of people have been getting these types of messages and they all have or have had the facebook app

    yours could be from an app, just givin everyone a heads up

    Most people use the "windows" people mentality and see something they like/want/must have, and download without doing any research on what they are downloading. You have to find out about the company that makes the app/game/etc, that your interested in and do a search, chances are 95 % or better that someone already had a problem with this *app and posted what was wrong with it. Use wikpedia to find out more about the company and if they use shitte tactics.

    Using a computer/smartphone is like buying a house/car - do your homework/research on what your interested in before using/buying it.

    Do you point & click (look & buy) on the first car/house you like without finding out anything about it (yes difference in price unless your bank account is hacked)

    I have never seen such happy point & click people as I have in the microsoft world, It's scary, and the spammers/scammers/hackers,crackers know this, thats why they succeed.

    It only takes a few minutes of searching to see if the app/game/etc is not a spam magnet which brings income for the company and/or 3rd party "devs"
