    Hi, does the windows version of NOD32 detect "Symbian Mobile Smart Phone" virusses/worms/trojans ?

    Or do I also need to scan my phone after I have installed a *.sis app with a Symbian anti-virus program ?

    Because I download the *.sis files with my Windows PC which runs NOD32, and then I install the *.sis files to my Nokia Phone.

    TIA
