    strange advertisement appears in my caller id contact icon

    I don't know what to make of this but my friend just told me that when I call him on his Droid Incredible he sees my Google ID icon, but underneath is a scrolling advertisement for something like "www.fringe.com" - I called him back on my landline just to check and sure enough - nothing there.
    he had to run so I couldn't get any more details but I'm seriously mystified by this.

    I'm running a rooted DX with Android version 2.2.1 (Froyo), Kernel version 2.6.32.9.xxxxx, and Liberty ROM 2.0.1

    obviously I've got a lot of apps that I use daily but nothing that should account for this.

    anyone have any experience with this?

    No, but that's outside the realm of things that can be transmitted over the airwaves on a phone call. you can't alter the way his phone's applications work by calling him. Otherwise you could put a virus on someone's phone just by calling it. That's not how it works.
