Re: Virus Protection

There is no such thing as a virus program for Blackberrys. As far as I know, nobody has written any virus's for them yet, so you don't need to worry. They are very secure devices.

Re: Virus Protection

Hi all I want to use my BBCurve 8520 as a modem connected to my pc. Would I need to have , anti virus loaded onto my smartphone to protect it? Is there an anti virus available? Is it necessary and how do I get one.

I discussed this with my carrier, and there is no need.
