Vishesh Mardolkar Asked a Question : I have purchased a new nokia 5310 nokia express music phone. Pretty good on music. My problem is this phone does not support .sis file as it is built on a symbian 40 (S40) platform, hence i am unable to use any antivirus application on my phone. Also most applications available on the air is built for s60 platform. How, where can i convert/download applications for my phone.
First of all you did the right choice buying a nokia mobile phone because i personally like them as they are very much compatible and every application associated with them are easily available on the internet. After using a Nokia N95, then Nokia 6300 & now Nokia 5100 iam planning for a Sony XPeria because of the advanced browsing features.
The first point which i would like to refer is that the Symbian S40 based mobile phones dont have any virus yet, hence there is no antivirus software ever released for these mobile phones because these are just simple phones and the maximum virus problem can be through bluetooth which should be avoided and activated only in safe zone. I did a search in most mobile phone related websites and didnt find the antivirus software for Symbian S40 based mobile phones.
You can always use the software CD provided with the handset to upload/download other games, applications etc but till date there are no Antivirus softwares launched for any Series 40 mobile phones.
