    You could also try TrustGo Mobile Security and Antivirus. It's a new player in the market but it's already made a name for itself.

    I like the Avast as well. In addition to anti-virus there is a nice anti theft or post theft suite in there as well that can lock your phone and even wipe it if you think you can't get it back. I like that level of security

    Yes, Lookout is the thorough, lightweight antivirus to use on mobile devices. I use the free version; however the premium is definitely worth the $.

    I like comodo mobile security myself. Been using them for my laptop for a couple years and not one virus. Was happy to see them go mobile.

    Im using kaspersky anti virus. It seems the best for me at the moment. Air push detector is also great when it comes to kicking out those unwanted push notifications. Highly recommended.

    I don't see the need for them on Android. Watch what you download and you're fine.

    Android has been known to have a few boogers . . . particularly in downloads. I've never personally found any but the forums contain stories of such malandroidy apps.

    Nothing is flawless but anti-virus has more drain on your system than a potential virus/malware would IMO. FWIW Norton on my PC has never let me down. I don't think the android app would disappoint either

    Yes, lookout is excellent. It includes backup and restore, locate your device when it's missing (and wipe the data if you so instruct it), protection from phishing websites, etcetera, in addition to av security.

    I don't understand, Ati6000 wants an antivirus but ppl like moosc just give, sad but true, crappy answers.
    He is not asking if you need or not an antivirus and if you are not using one it's your problem.
