    I downloaded the Norton Mobile Security App and I have about 50 something days left in my subscription.

    Does anyone know how much it is after my subscription ends?
    I went to their mobile website and it's not showing anything about the cost of the app/service whenever my subscription is up.

    I don't believe Symantec has announced the price yet. They probably will when the BETA phase of their release comes to an end.

    Dr.Web Anit-Virus is free and seems to be working quite well on my X.

    Anyone know anything bad about it?

    Why would you need an anti virus app on a phone?

    Well, in my opinion it's because at this point, these things are basically computers that happen to be capable of placing and receiving phone calls.

    I would think a rooted phone is less secure.

    I would agree as well, and clicking that "allow non-market..." button.

    Stay away from Pr0n and you'll be fine. ;)

    Personally, lookout messed up my android. I don't use that stuff anymore.

    +1 for Lookout

    also agree on that mxsjw's uncheck "allow nonmarket apps" -- unless you know exactly what you are installing. Check it to install something you absolutely trust, then uncheck

    I've noticed less general lag after uninstalling my anti virus program.

    Its like using a computer, as long as you aren't downloading email attachments from Nigerian princes and clicking on random advertisements that increase your "tool" size while entering in all your personal information, you should be fine...
