Oh dear.

December 29th, 2004 Leave a comment Go to comments

In my recent rant about Nokia phones, I listed some problems with the Series 60. I neglected to mention that there is a small collection of viri for the platform now which spread via Bluetooth.

This report on The Register this morning has now got me worried about this virus, so I’m going to be turning the Bluetooth on my phone off unless I need it on, as I’m not interested in having an expensive, virus spreading, paperweight.

If you have a Symbian powered phone, PLEASE turn the Bluetooth off. It’ll cost you less in the long run!

I realised the other day that although turning off Bluetooth is easy to do, it is hard to live with. I now have to deliberately turn on Bluetooth when I want my handsfree set to connect to it and have to remember to turn it off again when I no longer need the handsfree set connected – something I never had to think about before. Guess I’ll just have to get used to it
