    i tried downloading a game to my phone, when i went to play it, it said that it was trying to access phone logs and wouldnt let me play when i clicked on the "no" button. it was a little suspicious so i uninstalled the game but i was just wondering if it could have done some damage to my phone? should i reinstall my OS? :cry:

    There is no know viruses or spyware for the BB yet that I am aware of. Many applications require access to logs or other applications on the BB such as the address book or internet files. What game was it and was it designed for your BB and model?

    No problems with where you downloaded it. Your default permissions for applications is probably set too high. So it is prompting you first before using. The game is safe.

    That's understandable in todays world. You can relax in the fact that the BB is one of the most secure Smart Phones out there.
