So in the absence of anything else, I'm going to humour AT&T's opinion that the problem was malware. Certainly, wiping my phone and judiciously restoring apps and data seems to have prevented the issue from coming back. I don't understand why any malware would be coded so it only functions in one country, and remains completely dormant in others, though, ...

I'd use Greenify for something like this. It doesn't kill all running apps (as this is counterproductive to Android itself for many reasons), but you can select apps for Greenify to hibernate each time you turn the screen off.

Key lock, PIN or password do not offer any protection if the phone's bootloader isn't locked. For example, most of Samsung devices (except ones from Verizon or AT&T and some other providers I never heard) have unlocked bootloaders, at least in Europe. If you don't have your data encrypted, one only has to flash a custom recovery, which is very easy, and ...

If the constraint is not to tweak your system's hosts file which is the easiest way, then on the device you can run a DNS server. There is a free DNS server app by Icecoldapps on Play Store which was recommended in an answer on AE. But that doesn't really worked for me since it requires port forwarding. My device is rooted, so I used Servers Ultimate Pro to ...
