Just recently a friend of mine was puzzled why their mobile device had stopped working correctly and asked me to take a look at it. I did so, but to be honest didn't really understand what was happening with it as my exposure to such devices has been limited.

Nevertheless, my recommendation was to take it back to the seller and ask their advice, and to her surprise the assistant advised that it appeared she had a virus on the device, and if they were to remove it then they would possibly have to completely wipe the SIM card also!.

In the end she had no choice if she wanted to retain her mobile device, but this even caught me out, I knew mobile devices were just as prone (if not more now) as computers to picking up viruses but I hadn't known anyone (until now) that got one!. Luckily, the assistant also loaded up a few handy apps that would protect her device adequately which got me to thinking are there any free antivirus apps for mobile devices???. In my search, I came across who do seem to provide free protection for mobile devices ranging from the lesser known makes to the major models.

You can access the download page for your model here: and if you do successfully download and install protection onto your mobile device please let us know about it so we can share the info with others (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
