Stop annoying app world ad notifications
With current version of app world, I seem to be getting advertisements for apps they want me to try just as I always have- but they no longer come to me as emails I can choose to ignore if I want. Now, if there is an announcement of an app they want me to try, the phone vibrates, and the LED immediately flashes like there is some sort of emergency I need to take care of. I wake the screen up (no telling how long the LED has been flashing if I miss the start of this) and I see a ad for the app on the screen. LED is still flashing- The only choice on the screen is to download. Clicking that goes to App World and then it stops. But, at least initially, it takes more than one attempt to get this to clear in any other way.
Now, I do not mind messages for updates to apps I have installed. I do not even mind an occasional ad if sent the way they used to. But I find this one that flashes my LED extremely annoying. And I tend to not even look at what they are trying to get me to look at. How do I turn this off? I am not even sure how they are sending these since once you ckick or get it to close; no trace is left of how it came to me.

I don't believe the problem is AppWorld. You've installed an app that is sending you these notifications hoping to sell you something else.
This happened to me before. What I did was make a note of the developer and then researched what app I had installed with the same developer. Deleted it and the problem went away.
This is one way a developer can give away free apps, then entice you to buy a different app. Other free apps, have advertising within the app; Poynt is a good example of this.

I had the same problem on my torch 9810, go into text messages press the BB menu button click options, scroll to the option ďreject advertientĒ and tick he box, underneath should be an option ĒpriorityĒ change this to high.
Hope this helps sorry if you've figured it out already

The problem with alot of "free" apps is they spam you constantly. Sometimes it is hard to figure out which app is doing it! There needs to be rules where they WARN you before you install that they will do this.
