Hi All

OK

So came back to my Samsung galaxy s2 after eaten a delicious pizza, to find a green + in my notification bar after looking it has popped up with

"Congratulations - You Samsung galaxy s II phone has been randomly selected" which I have click on not used to touch screen yet lol.

sent me to

weekly-contest.com-uk.mobi..........

Now I know I have not actually won anything, but an now wondering why this notification has appeared in the first place and what me clicking this thing has actually done?

Many Thanks

If it was music junk then I got the same thing. You can opt out but I don't trust then so just uninstalled the app. There's an Airpush detector app as well to help work out which is the offending app
