2 AV's on a smartphone?
I've never tried that myself, but at least there is no risk of getting a BSOD under Android.
Android has its equivalent BSOD: Blue Error Handler and Kernel Panic.
Ps: It will not give a prompt to allow or deny a connection. The user have the option to create a whitelist or a blacklist of the applications he/she wants to allow/deny internet access, and then enforce those rules. It's possible to create individual rules for wireless and 3G access, for each application.
Only rules for data connection?
Maybe when they add more rules . . . but then it could affect the apps functionality.
Still, i guess that with data connection blocked even if it could log any kind of info it would be impossible to send the info.
Giving TrustPort a spin.
It works with the default Android browser too. It's just that they've added support for the Dolphin one.
TrustGo also has added support for Google Chrome browser--see the what's new tab on Google Play.
I now have 3 AV's, AVAST, DR WEB & IKARUS. All free solutions. No trouble with my phone, no issues. Working well.
Might try out DroidWall, sounds good.!!!
None for me. I bought my smartphone with Ahnlab V3 already installed and after a while I tried Dr Web for a few months. They've never found anything so I decided to go without any AV, I don't do much Internet stuff with my phone anyway.
Agreed, after all it's just a phone used by a user that I don't really count as a high risk user
I wonder what is his battery life.
So far only using DroidWall... anyway i only use this phone for games, and i´ll probably start using it for a couple of other things.
As for calls and sms, i rely in a good old Nokia 3310
Now giving Comodo a try.
For anyone with a rooted phone and has installed a firewall, have you noticed in the logs wherein the "linux kernel", "dialer", "Google Services Framework,..." and "android system" are all trying to phone home to various IP addresses despite disabling automatic update/s?
My log is clean, but i very rarely connect to the internet with the phone and i also don´t have the automatic updates disabled.

Nice find, thanks.
Are you still running Kasperksy on your phone?
If so, would you mind sharing your settings with me/us?
Just installed it on my device again. Its a default install have not changed anything. Looking for optimal setup config if at all possible.
Thanks in advance.
Yeah i still have it, i bought it for $5 USD!
If i purchase something it's because i'm 100% sure i'll be using it.
It's been a couple months since i last configured Kaspersky, give me a couple mins and ill answer you.
File protection setting: "Extended"
Scheduled updates: "Daily"
Call & SMS Filter: "Disabled"
Anti theft settings: All ON
Thank you sir!
Any reason you have disabled the Call and SMS filter?
