Just root it! I don't believe there's any other way.

I think you can download adblock plus apk from their site. Then go to your network settings and change the proxy for your APN to localhost and port 2020. You might need to create a new APN and copy over the settings since they won't let you edit the original APN

edit: I just did this on my T-mobile S5. Installled Adblock plus from https://adblockplus.org/en/android-install

Made a new APN and copied over the settings (original APN couldn't be updated). Then added localhost to proxy name and 2020 to proxy port. No ads anymore. No root needed
