    What is your BB doing that would indicate a potential virus? What is different?

    It's unlikely that the same virus that infected your computer could run on the blackberry OS and cause problems.

    I agree. I have not heard of any virus attaching a PDA, BB or otherwise.

    It is possible that you contracted a virus that would be able to pass off to the BB but it is not very likely. You should be ok, but if you are really worried you may be able to get a 3rd party downloaded virus scan for the BB.

    like this not for the pearl i don't think but just an example.
