toggle notifications

android 4.4.2 boost mobile

I receive notification (top left icon is created and a sound) when I receive sms or some email accounts (I can toggle email (gmail) account notifications on and off only receiving notifications on email (gmail) accounts I think are important). I also receive notification from voicemails.


How to block (unsubscribe) notifications from discovery channel (these are not emails and when I click discovery.com opens).
How to block notifications when I searched for an airline flight weeks ago which lands every day
How to block notifications offering me money for finding other boost mobile subscribers.

Please do not tell me to 'contact boost mobile' because hold time is long over phone

Try factory resetting the phone and if that doesn't help it maybe something boost have put onto the phone, i will be honest and say I'm not aware of who boost are. I will advise calling them as if they put it on they can advise you on how to remove it, maybe try installing avg anti virus onto the phone from the playstore and see if that finds anything.

These are all different apps that are on your phone.  Fortunately it's easy to turn off the notifications.

Swipe down and click on the "cog" to open settings.

Tap on the "General" tab, then "Application Manager" on the left.

Now if the app you're trying to disable notifications (e.g. discovery) isn't in the "DOWNLOADED" list, then swipe left until you get to "ALL".

When you find it, tap on the name of the app.  At the top is a check box "Show notifications".  Just uncheck this.

When you get the notification next time, swipe down to see it, then tap and hold until "app info" appears.  Click on that, then uncheck "show notifications"

Failing that, it could be another one of your apps so I would uninstall one app at a time until it goes away.

If you've uninstalled all apps you can and it still appears well then boost is sending you ads and is probably in your contract somewhere.
