    Hi - I'm new here. I have just got a Desire S (which I love). I've been trying to find out if I need to download some antivirus software. I've done a google search and there seem to be conflicting opinions if antivirus is needed for android phones. Does anyone know if it's better to be safe and download something like AVG from the app market?

    I do... I have Lookout, it seems to be the best one plus with that if you loose your phone you can track it online (you can do that already with the Desire S but anyway its still good).
    To conclude im not sure whether you need to but I have just to be safe :)

    I recently installed one of the apps ones 'antivirusfree' thinking about it, we have firewalls etc on our PC's so why not on our phones. Better to be safe than sorry :)
