Uninstall the app that is causing the popups. BlackBerry devices do not have popup ads by default.

Who told you that? Not in this thread.

You installed an app that is serving up the ads. Find the app that you installed, remove it and the ads will disappear.

Now, what apps are installed on your device?
And what apps have you recently installed?

A simple Google search for "Expense Manager BlackBerry" reveals that that application is from Oswald Designs.

https://appworld.blackberry.com/webs...countrycode=US

Do you have any of their apps installed? Flashlight perhaps?

That's where it is coming from.

Which is why everyone kept asking you "What apps do you have installed?" which you kept not answering ....

No, the question was very clear. It doesn't matter if he paid for the app or not. Many apps are free and can still be downloaded and installed. Hence, asking someone what apps they have installed should beget a list of apps they've installed regardless of whether they paid for them or not.

If so, it definitely wasn't "clear".
