    Not sure what you are afraid of. I am unaware of any virus for the iphone, but it is nothing a simple restore wouldn't fix. I also doubt there is a virus that will infect your iphone from your computer. If you have an infected computer why aren't you worried about that?

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    If you have a computer virus (It has to be on PC) the virus will have an .exe extension. Mac software have a .dmg extension so .exe cannot be read by Mac OS platform. Get a Mac....

    And if English is his second language, that would make you inconsiderate and intolerant of other cultures wouldn't it. Why not just answer the question without the insults? By the way, "sarcasm of course" is an incomplete sentence, very bad grammar (its not spelled "grammer")
