iAd on iPods/iPhones - Beware!

I just had an iAd embedded on the home screen of my 3GS.

I clicked it, hoping it would go away, and it was then that my phone just froze there.

Had to reset it to unfreeze!!

Anyone else had this happen? Or know how to stop them??

whats an iAd??

A lot of apps currently display a banner saying "Test Advertisement" perhaps this to do with iAds? It looks as if iAds is something included by Apple in the latest iOS

You're jailbroken eh? There is a folder you can ssh into and delete and it will remove all iAds from appearing but I can't remember what it's called... Get googling.

Adblock for SBsettings will stop this ever happening.

This was on the homescreen though - like underneath my apps etc...

I am JB yes, but only for xdanet - so havent fiddled round in the other settings, will have a look later, thanks!

This wasn't a test advertisement, this was the real thing! A proper advert for 'mobiles.co.uk' =/
