    No. But then I dont suppose theres much to infect on an old K800i

    The article is obviously alarmist, and by doing things such as not having bluetooth permanently switched on, and not opening messages from strange numbers/names you're going to be fairly safe IMO.

    Though Im still glad I havent got a minature computer in my pocket to worry about. Well I have, but Im glad its not very advanced

    How many people have had a Windows Mobile/CE virus or have even heard of anyone having one?

    I have a couple of friends who had issues with a worm that affected symbian devices but that's about it. I think it's coming once phones become an all in one phone credit card and it's worth the bad guys time.
