    Every time I a call is dialing or is hung up, random pictures of the android character pop up, like him playing baseball, eating a hot dog, sitting at a desk, playing guitar in the park... etc. Does anyone know what caused this to start? what program maybe? and a way to turn it off? I think it started right after I rooted my droid, it kind of acts like a screen saver type thing. I've waited a while to see if anything has popped up on the forums, and nothing has, it's annoying lol. oh and My phone will not dial *228, just goes back to home screen

    Do you see these images before or after the 12-pack of Budlight is consumed?

    You've installed an app which displays pictures after you call. There are several on the apps store with descriptions similar to: "Get a new picture every time you call! Keep dialing for random pictures from all over the world!"

    I'm also getting the same thing, pictures of an android eating a hotdog, on the desk using a phone, etc etc etc...

    I've installed a bunch of apps yesterday but I have no clue as to finding out which one it is.

    Karulio: maybe since we are getting the same pictures displayed it might be the same program?

    I downloaded a bunch of weather apps and games yesterday. The only weather app that remained on my phone (uninstalled the rest) was weatherbug and the games I installed were:

    1) zombie run, zombie
    2) abduction
    3) tower raiders
    4) actionPotato

    The following I had before on my Hero and didn't cause this issue but I'll throw them up anyways (maybe now they have an ad version or that picture after a call thing):

    5) Robo Defense Lite
    6) Trap!
    7) Nesoid Lite
    8) SNesoid Lite
    9) Throttle Copter
    10) 2 Player Reactor
    11) Barrage Lite

    I guess so, I dont know what program it would be, and seems to be you and me are the only ones having this problem, it's a little annoying. Not sure what program it would be, I'm wondering if someone knows?

    Found it...

    it was 'Calculation Display Calculators'

    Basically I just started read through the reviews of my installed programs until I found one with a review saying it installed another software without one knowing.

    I would suggest anybody else that installed this app go to the market and select "Flag as inappropriate" select "other" and report the problem. I am not to keen on unknowingly installing hidden applications.
