    So I swapped my Galaxy Apollo in for the LG Optimus One... and I love it. Just wondering if it's safe to download images from the internet on the phone? I used Deviantart before. Wanna get some wallpapers and stuff.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Also, is an Antivirus needed, like AVG?

    antivirus i recommended none. there are no real viruses on android platforms and the antiviruses programs only uses resources for nothing.. i got my o1 in december and i got no viruses since, i'm a big internet surfer and downloader :)
    i got netqin because it have a anti-theft system that it's so cool! if you change SIM it give a TEXT MESSAGE to a phone you select and you can text back commands like lock phone, delete phone, alarm (really nice, have a loud siren sound)...
    oh yah, it's a great contact backup app!

    um dude if your gonna download images
    heres what you do:
    Download QR Droid (QR Scanner)
    Find direct link to image. Like with the extension ending in .png,jpeg,gif...etc.
    QR Code Generator - Create Your Own QR Codes - Delivr <---Go to this site and post the QR code, it will generate a the QR for you. All you have to do is connect to the internet on the Optimus one, scan the code the generator gives to you then save your picture. This is how I manage to get my pics safely from the net.
