I'm on Sprint and I've gotten it, although not lately.


That's interesting. Did it happen for a while (when?) and then stop?


2, maybe 3 times over a 24 hour period, not last week but the week before. Hasn't happened again since. I was on 3G, not WiFi, if that matters. Haven't changed any setting on my phone.

Here's a possibly related, but probably unrelated question: for "ads" in the last week, have a lot of you been seeing beach scenes, that aren't clickable as actual ads? Kinda looks like a sunset picture...

That is what I'm getting today. Its soothing but making me crave a Pina Colada.

That's what I'm seeing now, actually. Non-clickable ads that don't sell anything... Now I've seen everything.

I am getting this on the message board and main board.

So, the pop up ad thing happened again on my phone, except I actually read it this time. It said that I was the winner of the "United States's (sic) Android contest". So, it was specific to my phone in that it knew I had an Android. There was only an option to click "ok", and then took me to a different page. It happened on the main page before I clicked anything.

FWIW, today I, too, got the Andriod message that Spencer got. On my iPhone. This time it was on AT&T 4G in San Francisco.

Thanks, guys. Still running things down with my ad companies, but I'm very hopeful that's the right angle. Your patience is absurdly appreciated.

FWIW, I've seen the non-clickable sunset ad this morning (both here and the front page) with no redirecting to the "free iPad" spam.

Thanks for the update. They are working on both things right now, but we remain unsure if they're connected. I do know that they started happening around the same time.

I'm pretty sure the beach/sunset problem is only a "problem" for me, and not you guys...

That's just a hint, Tim. A "targeted ad", if you will.

haha. I didn't even look to see what kind of add it was. I saw the buck and just assumed hunting.

The image you posted doesn't show up for me. What is it?
