I still get the wake up ads promoting mobile email. Through too many tech support calls, finally reloading the software made it stop for about a month. Now it's back. I have to believe there is no fix for this, as everything that has been tried, and reported as "fixed", has not worked. I will be calling today.

Come on Verizon get this fixed NOW!!! This is crazy
