    Sounds like you still don't have a mac

    If you get a mac, you will never (almost) come across a virus targeted for mac.

    And please don't write title in upper-case. It looks like you are shouting.

    Cheers,
    James

    you guys are so hopeful

    of course there are virus's on the mac
    mac's are just as easy to give a virus to as anyother computer
    you should check your facts before posting such crazy ideas
    there may be less virus's on the mac because people target pc more
    because pc users are a bigger market

    an iphone restore would remove any virus you got just like using a ghost image restore of a computer gets rid of any virus you get. I wouldn't worry unless you think your phone has a problem, even then most people would just restore anyway

    i don't agree.. OS X uses Unix kernel so there's no chance to get viruses.. many hackers on a lot of competitions have tried to hack macs with no luck

    What if someone write a fake software and post it on install.app.

    It could wipe your baseband firmware and brick your iphone.

    then it's your own stupidity to install unknown programs...
    just like stupid people using Nokia S60 Symbian OS and accept bluetooth transfer file from someone they don't know and complained because their S60 device just got the virus
