Is there a way to download an antivirus software programme eg AVG on an Asha210? Have heard this is not possible as Nokia claims no one has created a virus for their phones. I'm cautious because Apple used to have this attitude but now have antivirus software available.
If i have helped at all a click on the white star below would be nice thanks.

Yes, antivirus is very much needed.
Hi. You don't need an anti-virus. We hope this post (explanation) will suffice: http://discussions.nokia.com/t5/Pool-of-Knowledge/
As stated in a previous post this is the same propaganda apple used to spiel until one day..... now apple provides antivirus software compatability for its products.
A 3rd-party cannot create an anti-virus software because public APIs do not allow such deep integration into the system. Therefore, Nokia would have to provide something like that. I guess, it is easier for Nokia to fix such vulnerabilities, therefore, you are able to report security incidents. Although, that is not the same as anti-virus software.
