    Yeah Tether drains the battery pretty fast, playing games also uses lots of juice. :D

    What you can do (depending on the tablet) is user a USB OTG (On-the-Go) cable and USB teather. The tablet will die quicker but the phone will stay charged as it pulls power from the tablet. I do this on my Nexus 7.

    Another option is getting something like the Galaxy Note 2. Big screen and no need to tether. Works on any carrier.

    Thanks for the information.

    It looks like this one is highly rated and should work:

    Yup I have that one. Works well :thumb:

    Or a big batter like Noob said. I have a 10,000MAh battery that was $50. Charges my phone 3 times with juice to spare. You can get smaller ones for less.

    I am still using Dr.Web (Free Version) on my Cell Phone. I may switch to Avast soon to try something different.

    I'm running 360 Mobile Security on my Android phone, and I highly recommend it.

    Scans are lightning fast, even a full scan completes quickly, and detection rate appears to be very good. The only downside is that it does not include any extras such as anti theft or backup.

    USA still the best. But barely.
    Still using Dr Web Lite. Afaik there's 3 versions of Dr Web. One's the expensive payware, last I checked it was $75 for lifetime license. And two versions of the freeware version. I tried the Dr Web regular freeware & didn't like it. But the Lite freeware version is perfect here.

    If Dr Web goes off the rails I'll go back to Alyac.

    You should try one, just for the anti theft features. Thats the main reason i got one. The AV part is just a bonus. :D

    I'm still with Symbian S60 3rd edition, and just use it for basic functions. There isn't much in it. Don't laugh! :mad: :D

    Been running 360 Mobile Security for the last 4-5 days and so far I'm happy with it.

    I'm not running any anti-virus at the moment on my device. Heard about another company called Trust Look that is working on a signature less anti-virus. They are doing a beta right now, but its limited to businesses. I might give it a go when its available. I'm not terribly worried, as I keep my contacts securely stored in the KeePass for android app. The only e-mail application on the device is g-mail, which I will probably remove once I get around to rooting my device. Still taking things slowly, as I'm not native to android.

    Well I now have a smartphone, bought it on 8/22 and still figuring it out. It came with Lookout, I just installed. TrustGo Security based on a recommendation.

    I was thinking of trying it but it doesnt have any additional features like tracking, locking etc. Which are very important for me.

    I use TrustGo because it's the only one (of several) that I tried that doesn't freeze up my cheap tablet :D
