    It is always good to be sceptical.

    Virus for BlackBerry do not exist. The internal structure is completely different from a conventional computer.

    Java is an interpreted program, much like BASIC. The program code must be correctly installed, but never actualy executes in memory.

    There is a class of malware that can infect a BlackBerry. A Trojan Horse is a program that claims to do something, but after being installed, does something unexpected and potentially damaging. The differences is, you are tricked into downloading and installing it by social engineering.
