I currently have a GS3. I love my phone.
However, yesterday my phone started loading a random website. At first it looked like it was trying to load www.google.com. However, while I looked away and waited for it to load and then looked back, I noticed my phone said that it couldn't find that website. I found that rather odd, and upon closer inspection, I realized it was actually trying to load www.goolgle.com. I can't seem to figure out why my phone is doing this.
I customize my phone, but I don't root it. I reformatted it today and it still has the same problem. I don't use a special browser. The only "special" apps I use are the Go products (Launcher and SMS) as well as Swiftkey for my keyboard.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? How can I fix this? (I checked my default page. It is set to www.google.com)
Solved! Go to Correct Answer
The first ting that I would try is to clear browser cache and history.
Open Browser > Menu > Settings > Privacy and Security > Clear Cache and Clear History.
You may also try:
Open Browser > Menu > Settings > General > Set home page.
Set it to something that you want or blank.
This is a problem with go launcher ex latest version 4.03. I had exaIctly the same problem. I contacted the developers who sent me a link to an .apk which solved it.
Thanks so much! I figured it had to be a problem with an application because when I first used it after reformatting it, it worked perfectly.
Thanks for the help!
That air push disclaimer is a ad generator used by the application you are installing. It will push ads to your notification bar. I would suggest uninstalling any application that allows these ads and find a better quality application that doesn't push ads to your phone.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
Problem is I can't seem to track the app down. When I think I have it narrowed down, I uninstall it and it STILL get the annoying popups whenever I install or uninstall anything from my phone.
