    I get about 6 ads daily (in red) and I don't know which app they might be coming from. They're ads claiming I won something. Anyone have this issue? My carrier is Verizon, but they claim its an app issue.

    Use Lookout Ad Network Detector to find the app. Before you uninstall it, leave a really nasty review on Play :thumbup:

    Install Appbrain Ad Detector and it will warn u when u try to install apps like that

    Another app is Airpush detector, which should be able to tell you what's pushing ad notifications out

    I use airpush detector as well, and it keeps my phone ad free.

    The gs3 has a built in ad detector if you're on jellybean. The next time you get one of the ads pull down the notification bar and long press on it. Then press app info and it'll tell you which app sent the ad.
