It means that you have installed an app that is pushing ads to your phone. You need to look at the installed applications and start removing some.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Hello, Brieaddy. Let's start by looking into the source of the ads. Please follow these steps to put your phone in Safe Mode, and try making a couple calls: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-203892/ . This will rule out any 3rd party apps causing the problem.

Killed a bunch of apps I didn't really need and the ads went away. Thanks for the help!

Killing an application doesn't remove it from the phone.
