    Most recently I've begun having spam redirects when I click links on various websites. I've had it happen on the BlackBerry official website when I was looking for some information there, as well as other websites that I've never had an issue with before.

    This is happening when I'm on SaskTel 4GLTE data service, I haven't really noticed it happen on a wifi connection, though I don't typically use the browser heavily if i have Wifi. I've tried clearing the cache, history, cookies, etc and have shut my phone right off and turned it back on, as well as a battery pull just in case but nothing has changed.

    This doesn't happen every time I click a link, and I'm not sure if it's on every website, or just the ones I spend the most time on and that's why it's most noticeable. But it's annoying. Connect5364 .com is the initial link that will appear, it changes quickly to take me to either a travel scam, a you've won something, some Illuminati conspiracy stuff (wtf?), websurveys etc.

    I'm not sure what all I can do .

    Porn websites don't scam. Some are very honest and straight forward delivery to the goods. It counld be the DNS your network uses...

    Jason, this isn't something happening on adult websites, it's happening on normal sites like blackberry.com, it happens on the homepage of the gaming community I run, on anime websites I frequent etc.

    There is a setting in the browser setting that tells websites not to redirect. However, this still happens on some porn websites (so I'm told, hehehe).

    Again, this is NOT something that is happening on adult websites, nor does my phone ever get used for them. Actual HELPFUL responses as to what I can do to stop this would be appreciated.

    Try to determine if it's only your mobile network being affected?

    Simple but efficient solution in some cases would be to reset your Wi-Fi router, which you used to connect to internet. You may legitimately question how Wi-Fi browsing is related to your 3/4G browsing? Some exploits change DNS servers in your router. From there it controls what page to redirect you to. When you switch to 3/4G the DNS server address of your latest pages remains intact. So you will still be redirected to the spam sites, unless your restart your device.
    As for the twitter, restarting your router and phone my not aid your problem with twitter. Since twitter app for smartphones does not have 'clear cash' option, it would be reasonable to log out, delete and reinstall its again. Same may applies for other apps. Hope the above helps.
