    With news of the security flaw on android phones, do you use your android phone with public wifi?

    No, I use my 3G when I'm mobile, and use my home wifi network (which is secured) when I'm home. I don't use any other wifi networks.

    No, I don't even use wifi at home. I'm always in a 4G area and the speed is just as good as wifi.

    Public wifi is dangerous with any device. I'll stay on 3G or wait until I get home on my own wifi.

    really not concerned with security issues. WORST case, and in my opinion a very unlikely scenario, someone steals my credit card info, and I call Chase and tell them that $2500 charge to pokeronline.net isn't mine. They remove the charge and I get a new card.

    No need to use public wifi when you have a discounted 6GB data plan ;)

    I never use public WiFi as it is not safe. It does not take much to hack into your device while you are connected to the public WiFi....almost like leaving your house's door wide open at night.
