I would suggest to do a hard reset on the phone or if ever update the firmware and then install the AV and at that point you would really be safe.phone would be performing better.specifically for NOKIA's there is a special or secret ways of doing a master reset.

thanks

hi nick,
u should first remove ur M.S frm ur SE 700i phone........then u have to do master reset.....and listen it will rest your setting not  ur mesages,calenders entry and not even contact.....bt jst for sake of prevention.....copy all ur contacts to the phone memory.....now ur phone is virus free till you donnnt insert your M.S.....
then now your M.S turn......just connect ur M.S to ur pc through Card Reader.....now scan it properly wit latest update AV......or far better way is to format it......after all the data you will manage to get....bt dont take chance wit ur phone......u can get ur data back bt not ur phone...okkkkk

thanx man...its working..how to reset ma nokia phone...but in nokia phone  all data in phone memory will b erased.?????

Gizzle's picture

its f9........normally nokia s40 are unaffected by virus since they only support java platforms software.........since ur bearer  u may use.. following steps..
1 Switch Off the device.
2 Press and Hold down the keys Green/Talk + 3 + *.(hard Format)
3 Switch On the device.
4 If everything goes well then you will see "Formatting" screen.
but dont leave the buttons until u seen the formatting screen or else ur mobile started.......it will crashes ur mobile sofware......

or else

dial *#7370# ? not sure if it resets S40 models, but nothing happen if u try it.

Or you can try to do a firmware update ( http://www.nokia.com/softwareupdate ) as that'll reset it, too.

If neither helps, any Nokia authorized repair center should be able to help.

while doing hard format..al data will get erased na???

Gizzle's picture

 yaa......by hard format you will lost your data.....bt first u remove memory card and
dial *#7370# to do master reset..... then connect your memory card to pc via card reader and scan it as i told you b4....
if its not working then copy your contacts to the sim and just do hard format......

 Sorry for my blank comment above, it just got posted by mistake, nick have you taken backup of your phone? See if you have important data then you should take backup of your phone, and if it is not that important then you must do a hard format to save your phone.

nick_123's picture

i tried to take backup of my phone..but how to backup my calender enteris and messages...???

Gizzle's picture

 its not necessary that by taking back up of your data.......ur phone wiill be secure......the virus will infect ur data..!!

No There is not a such type of Antivirus for java phones.

Gizzle's picture

 hi lyman,

bt mobile virus can be scan wit PC AV...

nick_123's picture

Gizzle's picture
