Ads on Android notification bar getting some T-Mobile customers mad23
TmoNews, customers of the nation's fourth largest carrier are protesting on T-Mobile's forums and websites about ads they have received on their notification bar for the T-Mobile VIP Zone, March Madness brackets and other promotions. The ads started on T-Mobile's My Account app after it was updated, and spread to the notification bar.
Since users can't opt out of the notifications or even uninstall the My Account app on models running stock OS, all that is left is to complain. Most feel that the notification bar is for personal information and that ads just do not belong on it. And there also is the waste of battery power to consider. It might not seem like much energy is being wasted, but as many Android users know, every bit of battery life adds up.
