[access-uk] Re: How would you use your mobile if you could?

But Steve,

How does the virus get onto your phone in the first place? you have to
accept a bluetooth download don't you?

Cheers

Dave

Hi Dave,

It is worse than that.  There are Bluetooth viri around now that can
literally lift all your contacts from your phone to someone else's.
Then you have all kinds of problems especially if you have lots of
contacts.
Bluetooth is not secure.

All the best

Steve

Well Steve,

You are right, that there are some sad gits around with nothing better
to do than send out viruses, but as long as common sense is used, there
shouldn't be a problem.  I'm sure you are going to come back telling me
someone can take over control of my phone, and make it connect to the
internet and log onto some illegal website, and have me put in prison.

Cheers

Dave

Hi Dave,

Would be good, but possibly insecure.  If you just download anything by
Bluetooth, you are asking for trouble.  There are Symbian viri about.

All the best

Steve

Ray,

It would be better if the info could be bluetoothed to your phone at the
bus stop! arrive at bus/train station, perform bluetooth search, and
download info, done and cost nothing.

Dave

That's all very well, but the PDf of the bus stop codes on the Network
West Midlands site is hardly user friendly, being less than well
formatted and a very large pdf too.

In my opinion it would be better if this text phone infocould be put up
as an HTML page.

Cheers,
Ray.
