  1. The most basic way to protect against cell phone viruses is never to open any file that looks suspicious or that you haven't requested. It might also be a good idea to turn off your device's discoverable mode if it's Bluetooth enabled. You also can browse security sites that keep detailed lists of virus information. And, of course, installing security software on your phone could help your cause. Some applications prevent your phone from getting some common viruses; others detect viruses once they've made it onto your phone and then remove them. Be sure to load security software only from a source you trust because some viruses masquerade as security patches.
