| | Can my Blackberry become infected with a virus?
Please Login to Remove!
I have a Blackberry 9000 running OS version 5. It has developed two faults since I upgraded to v.5.
The first problem is that the system doesn't send me an alert for appointments in the diary function. Suppose I have an appointment with my lawyer on, say, 31st December, and I set up an alert for one day beforehand in the calendar, no alert appears on 30th December or at all. The alert system worked OK when I was using version 4.
My second problem is when I lock the keyboard using either the "mute" button or the "lock" key. The keyboard is locked for about 30 seconds to a minute and the lock then disappears which means that keys are pressed when the phone is in my pocket.
I just wondered if Blackberries can become infected with viruses and if there is an antivirus available.
