Is it possible to get a virus on a phone?

I have been thinking about this for a while now and although it seems like a possibility, I have never been completely sure about it. Is it possible to get a virus onto a mobile phone? If so, is there a way I can prevent this? For example, mobile phone security?

It is possible, but you don't really need a mobile security because a mobile virus specifically on android can only infect your phone if installed. So to prevent that from happening, you just need to be careful on browsing the web thru your phone and avoid installing unknown apps specially from ads. yes

It can happen but it's less frequent than computer viruses as there aren't as many around. As said already, just be careful when browsing the web and don't click on unknown links.
