    Virus protection

    So I was wondering, do I need virus protection? The dude at the vzw store said it was a bad idea, but I wanted to ask the experts lol ya know the ppl who actually use them!

    No, it uses more resources than its worth. There aren't any known Android viruses, just install from trusted sources!

    It's good to hear that the guy at vzw gave you some solid facts, did he also tell you that task killers are just as bad ?
