  1. theres always going to be viruses with anything, thats even with cell phones. I say we get rid of cell phones all together, they are nothing but tracking devices. You can see what I mean in this article on reverse cell phone directories


    so now anyone can get your address from a cell number? Thats crazy!

    on Mobile(cell phone) Industry and happenings. Please continue the good work. Thank you.

  4. Virus is very irritating… and I don’t even want to think of the damages that it may cause in every devices especially cellphones. Blue tooth is a very good feature in our phone but it is really the access point of virus.
