How many times have you dropped your mobile phone? As much as I try to take good care of my phone, I can count at least 3 times that it has slipped out of my hand and landed with a sickening crunch on the pavement by my feet. Thankfully, my Nexus 1 (it’s ancient, I know) seems to handle the abuse, and except for some external bruises, it works fine. But that’s not always the case. One of our Facebook fans wrote this testimonial today on our wall.
I had an issue on the weekend with my phone and Avast has saved the day!!!
I had dropped my new Galaxy SII HD LTE and was unable to view or alter the phone due to a broken screen. My replacement is on the way but I wanted to ensure my phone was wiped and factory reset before I sent it back to Bell.
Without Avast Mobile on the phone this would have been impossible, so I would just like to say THANK YOU! One quick text and the phone was wiped and factory reset.
You have secured the integrity of my data and assisted when I needed it most. :) THANK YOU a Million times over.
