    I have never seen an antivirus for iphone, or ipad. Because they are much like mac's, they dont get virus's

    And like all smartphones, if you got one of the few viruses ever written for smartphones, all you'd have to do is restore as new.

    I got a virus on my BB a few months ago before coming over to the "Dark Side". I agree that a simple restore is the way to fix it. What bothers me is the inevitable fact that people do this in the first place.

    As long as your device is not jailbroken there is not much risk of a virus. The nature of the OS and how all the apps run in a sandbox, if a virus was written it would really only effect the one app in which the virus existed.

    The only one virus, and it was not really a virus, was on jailbroken phones that had SSH installed and the default passwords not changed. And with that, if I can remember correctly, they just got RickRolled.

    I love when people make these kinds of claims without actually backing them up. I would LOVE for you to prove to me that a blackberry got a virus.
