    Where can I find objective reviews re. security and/or
    antivirus software for the Nokia 9300 (Symbian Series 80)?

    On a related note, are either Symantec Mobile Security 4.0
    for Symbian and/or Symantec Client Security 3.0 for Nokia
    Communicator applicable for use on Cingular?

    What is the difference between those two Symantec products?
    Neither their website nor the customer-service rep with
    whom I spoke were particularly helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello!

    Rem: by the way, you can use your default system antivirus in your PC for
    checking files in Nokia 9300. Oxygen Phone Manager II for Symbian OS phones
    ( http://www.opm-2.com/symbian/ ) has a special feature which allows to
    check the files, you've downloaded from Nokia 9300, with your default
    antivirus software. There is no need to install any applications on your
    smartphone: our program allows to check the files on your PC and, therefore,
    saves the disk space and total perfomance of your phone.

    Actually Maxim, not all anti-virus products will scan Symbian OS phones
    from a PC. McAfee won't, for instance, unless you have certain phones.

    The poster was asking about the difference between the two Symantec
    products, not looking for an advert for Oxygen Phone Manger (which, by
    the way, is overpriced and no better than the free Nokia Phone Manger -
    I have no connection with either company, so am talking from an
    unbiased point of view.).

    The difference, as I understand it, is that, whilst one product sits on
    your mobile phone & constantly monitors what is going on, the other
    sits on your PC and allows you to scan your phone via bluetooth or
    cable/IR connection. The advantage to the latter is that it doesn't
    slow your phone down by constantly monitoring what's going on, the
    disadvantage is that, as virii become 'smarter' it may prove impossible
    to scan your phone due to the links being disabled by the virus. I've
    not heard of it happening yet, but I can see it coming. Also, if you
    don't make constant backups of your phone, you stand to loose data
    before you can identify/eliminate the virus.

    Hope this helps?

    As for the constant adverts from Oxygen that appear here, surely these
    are unsolicited and, as such, should be banned?

    Yes, I know it, but some antivirus programs do this job. For example, common
    Kaspersky antivirus ( http://www.kaspersky.com/ ) detects Symbian OS viruses
    even in desktop edition. It seems, that this feature will be implemented in
    all other antivirus program's in the most nearest future.

    Our antivirus feature doesn't scan the phone constantly via bluetooth or
    infrared: it just scans the files already downloaded from your phone to our
    interface. I.e., it works in offline mode. So it doesn't slow the phone
    either.

    This will never happen, as our antivirus feature doesn't intervene into the
    phone's processes anyhow. It just scans the files in our program's
    interface.
