Re: bluetooth bad files

Hi Catherine,

seems your phone has caught a mobile virus.

I suppose the only fix is to take it to a repair center and have them fix it up for you.

Or could there be some anti-virus software that removes it?

There's some information on viruses at the Nokia Security website:

Re: bluetooth bad files

Hi, I too have a bad file called CARIBE affecting the performance of my nokia 6600 unfortunately i am unable to get to a repair centre. If you enter CARIBE.NET onto ask.co search it brings up quite a bit of info on this virus.
Good Luck, Im still trying!!

Re: bluetooth bad files

dialling *#7370# will remove the virus but this will delete all other data from your phone memory
