    SmartPhone AntiVirus Recommendation?

    My phone came with McAfee VirusScan Mobile installed but a lot of the time it won't update itself. Does anyone have a favorite mobile AV and, if so, what makes it your choice?

    I'm talking to myself here, but for reference, I found the Kapersky mobile Security package and am very happy with it.

    Just a question...how many viruses have you ever come across on a WinMo device? I used to run one of the AV programs out there, but never had a hit and in the 8+ years I haven't run into one at all.

    At least you're not in the iPhone Jailbreak club...

    I agree. I've never seen or heard of a virus attacking a phone. I don't think the pool is large enough for anyone to worry about.
