Hello, one of our corporate users that uses an iPhone keeps receiving a popup spam message from "http://newnotice.org saying he won something. This is obviously spam. It happens in every program. What could be causing this? He has a regular iPhone 4 with no jailbreak or anything like that. Normal business apps. Only for business use. I will try to post a screenshot.
Computer OS: Other
Hello, I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
You can prevent the popups occurring byinstalling AdBlock or GlimmerBlocker,
.....Did you happen to miss the part where I said this was an iPhone? None of that is possible with an iPhone...
No, I got that part!
It is possible to block popup ads on the iPhone -
AdBlock is an extension for MobileSafari that filters out advertisements when you are surfing the Internet from your iPhone.
Are any web pages currently open in Safari?
I ask this because there must be some link to the original website that is still driving the popups.
Either an open browser page or an app that has been installed...
This isn't just in Safari... it happens in Mail.app and other applications
Are you certain that the iPhone isn't jailbroken?
Have you tried restoring the iPhone to factory settings?
No... and we really don't want to... that would require entirely resetting up the phone which the user doesn't have time for right now.
What other applications does it happen in apart from Mail.app?
If it is only appearing in Mail, then here is a simple fix:
Goto Settings>Notifications>Mail> the choose "Alerts" in the alert style menu. Set the Alert Style to "None".
Fixed the issue myself.
