Hi 

[Please don't top-post with buggy Microsoft Outlook 11]
'Buggy' you say? Feature rich would be Steve Ballmer's refrain.

I say 'tomatoes' and you say 'tomatoes' springs to mind...and there are
quite a few top posters here too. A ragtag group of rebels, no doubt. I
understand the reasoning behind old school rules for bottom posting, or even
inline replies but I have to admit it is laziness on my part. I have enough
to do ensuring that my grammar and spelling are correct(my own bugbear which
I would rather not visit upon others), let alone that the format pleases
everyone.
Thanks

Hi

Thanks for the infos

I think that pirated software is a most risky proposition-as with
anything where the user initiates installation.

Personally, I think there is a greater risk of having your phone
stolen and your data compromised than anything else.

This may be anecdotal, but I don't know anyone who has ever had a
virus on a symbian based (or any other) phone. Unlike people who use
PC's.

kind regards
Sven
