Looking at the rate at which Blackberry Phones get internal faults recently even without the user misusing it, one can’t help or wonder ‘Do i Need To Download An AntiVirus Application For My BlackBerry Phone?’

A friend recently shared a problem he had with his Blackberry Bold One with me and according to him, he drained the bb battery totally and the next time he charged the phone to use, he realised the phone had gone faulty. Now tell me, does draining a bb battery spoils the phone? Obviously not, too many times i have drained my blackberry curve phone yet i have no issues with it.

Now back to the question of whether or not you need an antivirus software installed on your BlackBerry Smart Phone.

Personally, i do not use an antivirus software on my BlackBerry Curve Smart Phone and i have not had any major issues with it since i purchased the phone more so, i do not intend installing one now because i feel there is already a pre-stalled anti-virus application on blackberry phones and that’s why there is always a security check up anytime you turn your phone on after you removed and fix back your bb battery.
