Yes. Just the same as a computer can if you are not careful what you download. Only download items from websites you trust, and ideally download them to a computer, check for viruses, then transfer the file to the phone. Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; Check page 56/57 - "internet security" - there is basically a built in security function, just check it is on. Later models have anti virus software that can be added and used in the same way as a computer AV software, but it appears there is none for the 550, so apparently the built in internet security function works well. Hope this helps :)

I used ngage qd. my phone will automatically send a multimedia massage to anyone..i think i don't send any multimedia massage... what can i do to solve the problem..?

For sure your mobile and your memory card is infected by a virus,might somebody send a bluetooth message to you or the virus comes from other memory card or your card has been plug into a computer which has a virus.this is a common problem of WD2 phones like 6600,3650 etc.

To fix this problem, scan your memory card to a computer which has an updated anti-virus installed.use a multi media card reader.after scanning and if detect any virus, erase it and install a mobile anti-virus application.

Download this application to your computer and install it on your mobile or memory card.


On your phone,you need to Format or reset your phone to remove the virus on your phone memory.By doing this, type *#7370# on your home screen,a lock code will be ask then enter your code (if you change the code before)or the default code is 12345.this will reset you phone and back to its original settings.

Take note that if you format your phone,be sure all important files like contacts,photos is back up because it will erase everything after the process.

you must do the 2 method, if you disregard one of them,it will still give problem because they will infect both system on phone memory and the memory card system.

Hope this method helps. Thank you for visiting Fixya..

Virus has been infected to my mobile and want to format it.

You should be able to open the mobile phone up onto your computer with a usb cable, I think it is called Nokia Data Manager err somthing like that which is what I use for my n95 8g, and then you should be able to format using that. Another way is to take it to a Nokia service place where they can format it for you.
