I've had my smart phone a a bit more than a year. I've sent maybe two emails and have read only about a dozen. I have been on the internet with it about three times.I didn't have any apps, zero.
A few days ago I downloaded two free apps, a compass and a flashlight. Now I get popups.
I read about that flashlight app. I try to be very careful about what to install on either my PC or my phone. Some of those PUPs (potentially Unwanted Programs) like the ones that serve ads don't uninstall too well, and then as you said you may be looking at a factory reset to get rid of some of that stuff.

One of the flashlight apps is known to come with pop up ads. It's free, and when you download an app, it usually lists a bunch of things the app 'might' control or look at in your phone.

Has anyone else started getting popups on their cell phones
