Help - I can't access Ebay from my Android Phone


Saturday 13th of April 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello all, I have an ATT Galaxy 3 phone with Android version 2.3.6. Since yesterday, I cannot access Ebay at all. Not from the a standard browser or from Ebay Mobile. It is the only site I can't get to with the phone. It is acting like that site has gotten blocked somehow. I cleared the cache, histories, and all that in the browser. I ran a virus scan. I am out of ideas. Ebay is main thing I use my phone for, so I'm kinda screwed at the moment. Any ideas? Is there somewhere I can go in to look and see if ebay.com has gotten blocked somehow? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

Quick search box keeps popping up (virus?)


Tuesday 05th of March 2013 / android.net
Hi there,I think my android phone may have a virus. Whenever I try and perform an action the Quick Search Box pops up and takes over the screen so I cannot do what I want to do. In short time, the Quick Search Box keeps popping up without me doing anything. I can't even power the phone off because the Quick Search Box takes over before I can press the Power Off button. Can someone please help me with this?

Random apps installing on my Android


Friday 26th of October 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi there I recently got my Android and i am fairly new to it. I have been noticing random apps installing on my home page... battle ship, gangnam style, top apps and a whole bunch of others without my permission, which i did not install.a) how can i permanently delete them so they dont appear again? (i tried airpush detector and removed 1 game) i cant seem top uninstall it by clicking menu and uninstall and the only option it gives me is to toss it into the garbage. b) is this some sort of malware? (i use norton virus scan... nothing detected. i have also noticed that once this app installs my Android freezes for a bit then runs normally. Thank you!

Greetings...I Have Never Owned An Android And Have A Couple of Questions


Thursday 26th of September 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have been an iphone user since day 1 and well due to this ios 7 have made the decision to come to android. Seeing how I have never used an android before, my first question is: What is bloatware? I keep seeing that term float around and have not the slightest clue what it is or means. 2. My friend has the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and we were both using our devices to go to zedge.com to browse ringtones. (I currently have the iphone 4s) However he was telling me he wasn't too sure about downloading anything because he didn't want to get malware or get a virus. I've never had that be an issue with my iphone, is this something that I will have to be afraid of going to android, or is he just over paranoid? He also said his phone is "rooted" so he can do what he wishes with it I guess, so I didn't know if that was something that would be the reason for him being paranoid. I'm thinking of getting the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, I really like the size and things I have read about the phone have all been a positive. Last question, how does the camera on the note 3 compare to the iphone 5s o

Virus or Malware


Tuesday 01st of April 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a virus or a malware. Running Android 4.1.2. I have tried virus checkers (4) and malwarebytes to get rid of it, nothing worked. I reset my phone (Samsung Galaxy 2) back to factory setting, that didn't work. It keeps downloading games, even though I have automatic downloads turned off. The only way to stop it is by turning off wi-fi and 3G. Sort of throwing it in the bin, has anyone a thought on how I can get rid of whatever is doing this? Cheers Rob
