T-Mobile has issued an apology for spamming Android users on its network through their notifications bar. Some Android customers on its network received the ads promoting T-Mobile's free VIP Zone and noticed them pulling down the notification window. According to the company, the notices were sent inadvertently and were stopped as soon as the company was notified of the problem through user complaints.

T-Mobile issued this statement on the matter:

'During a recent software update, a message to promote T-Mobile's free VIP Zone was mistakenly sent to certain customers and appeared on the notification bar for some Android devices,' reads an e-mail to TmoNews. 'After T-Mobile was made aware of this mistake, the company stopped the notifications. T-Mobile apologizes for the inconvenience this may have caused customers.'
