I have a Nokia 6670 and i think it has a virus. Is there any virus that doesnt let the phone start? When you try to turn it on it just turns the white backround but the Nokia logo never comes out and turn off after a little while. Is this a virus or what is it? Is there anything i can do to fix this?

Re: Help on viruses
There isn't a virus that does that. This may be caused by a buffer overflow or a flash error or even a firmware corruption. It would be very hard for a virus to do that. However you will probably need to have the phone's software (flash) rewritten in a service center. It's the safest and easiest way to get it fixed. They have the proper tools and hardware to fix your phone's software.
Also, in the future, try not to install programs in phone memory, if you have the option always install on memory cards. I have seen phones with full internal memory that fail to boot because the operating system (symbian) doesn't have enought "RAM" memory to load itself.

If still all application is not working,try to reset your mobile by typing *#7370# in your home screen.this will reset your phone to its original default.just make sure that you back up all data of yours cause it will be deleted as soon as the phone restarts.
Also try to scan your memory card with the latest update of anti-virus,it might be infected by virus that's why all files is being corrupted.
may be your phone has virus for many times and never been removed from it. sometimes prolonged virus accumulation in a phone especially nokia destroys the symbian os. whic is the operating system of your phone. the solution i think is to have your phone to be flashed and reformat to a nearest service center at your place.
your unit is full, delete or move some from your phone memory to your other memory. if it doesn't help, i think you unit has a virus. scan your removable memory in your computer or format your memory on your computer not on your cellphone. the virus on the phone cannot be remove by anti-virus of the cellphone, it can only be remove by reformatting or reprogram your unit.
please do the following just turn off yout phone and try to do hard rest for your mobile , press *,#and 3 with switch on button till you have formate screen ,.. this is teh most safe way to remove the tracker but you can also lose any other programmes .
your phone definitely needs the servicing,install the operating system newly.try updating the antivirus as regular as possible because if you update the antivirus software today it might not block the virus which are been generated at the next moment,hence try updating as regular as you can.............
and the main thing is be careful while switching on the BLUETOOTH ,its very important because most of the times virus enter your phone when you switch on the BLUETOOTH or the IR port
