    You might try this:

    I am guessing that you have a Series 60 Nokia?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Since you are from India, Do you have GRPS activated ? If yes, is it with Airtel or some other company. I'm asking this because with Airtel you can only access Airtel's site, unless you have activated Mobile office.

    If you have unrestricted (not unlimited) GRPS access then they out F-secure, or else its not of much use, since you cant update the anti-virus..

    I wouldn't bother.

    There are next to no mobile viruses in the wild.
    Keep your bluetooth off when you don't need it and don't download warez for your phone and you'll be fine.

    Guess So ?

    (just joking)



    On a serious note there are lot of them out there, but like ASPMAN said you dont need them just keep your bluetooth off and transfer files from people you know.. Oh it seems 6111 uses bluetooth ver. 1.1 which has many bugs in it. If you can go to Nokia care and update your firmware.. If you are unsure type *#0000# and paste the version here.. I'll let you know if you need an update..

    Second you can also Get symantec mobile security (http://www.symantec.com/home_homeoff...pvid=sms40symb)
    and Trendmicro (http://www.trendmicro.com/en/product...e/overview.htm)
    Something, that I dont understand is that even though your version is Symbian Series 60 its still not supported by any of there ... I'll still check with a friend of mine... he has the same handset.. or even you can download and try out, if its not compitable it will warn you..

    Latest software version in 3.77. You can go to a service center near you and get it updated for free or for 75 INR if your handset is not under-warrenty. Also if you update it anywhere else you will screw your handset up.
