    ...you really REALLY don't need anti-virus or firewalls on your phone at this time... maybe in a few years, when people with too much time and hatred of anything good that is Android handsets, but not now... >.>

    No, the reason why i want to put on 'Droid wall', is because you can block certain applications that goes on the internet. So this will mean that i will be able to save a lot of money on my phone, as i dont have an unlimited data plan, droid wall would work well for me.

    I'm afraid I don't have any info for you on droid wall, but firstly, how large is your allowance? Also, if we are talking about apps like timescape, facebook, news etc. You can stop them updating. But personally, I just use an app called 'Quick Settings' which keeps my wifi and APN off until I need it, for me it's purely because of battery power, but for you, keeping APN off is obviously essential :)

    I've sorted it out, i am using a app called 'APNdroid', this basically disables your 3g/edge/gprs with one click, and also enables everything with 1 click.
