    hope this is the right forum.
    Suddenly after uninstalling an app i have advertisements show up before and after making a phone call.

    I believe the bad app to be PINBALL by Nico and Manu as the advertising looks like that of the game.

    upon placing a call i get a 3 second picture of the android guy doing something like playing tennis or typing on the computer with a cadillac advert at the top, then the call is placed. then when i hang up, he is there again, and doesn't go away untill i hit the end, back or home key. memory doesn't appear to be affected and all my files/contacts seem to be intact.

    i have a non rooted g1 on firmware 1.6 build drc83

    any help

    Easy way to find out. Uninstall the Pinball app and see if it goes away.

    It's not the Pinball app as I have it & Don't suffer with this ,

    You haven't by any chance got a game called "taps 300 or taps 7 or taps *then a number*" or have any apps such as "Ringclips" , Or "Ringphoto" installed?

    Carl :)
