I wanted to check if i need to install an Antivirus on my Javelin so as to protect it from Internet Virus. Please recommend the Antivirus as i am new to Blackberry.

Re: Antivirus

have there actually been any cases of blackberry virus's?


If you did dowload load a html page or something with a virus , i doubt it would do anything as there are more geared for attacking the microsoft platform rather than rims.


but i could see you point if received an email with a word document with a virus and you forward it to someone could be kinda of embarrising.



but i could be wrong, I won't be installing an av product on my blackberry if one exists, my integrated email accounts already sweep for virus's.
