I'll agree with others who say that--in short--the solution isn't a technology one. Anti-virus/anti-spyware/anti-malware/whatever you want to call them on phones is typically described as having dubious value and only brings a false sense of security, and some try to pass themselves off as security software but do the exact opposite. As for "family content" filters...well, nothing's perfect. To me the only thing they do is communicate the parent's lack of trust. Are they worth that price?

Personal observation: For g*d's sake, why do teens feel they need to bring a phone to the bathroom? Nothing good can come out of that. The various "celebrity leaks" should demonstrate that whatever they do with them in there is not secure. Must be a generation thing, because I don't get it.
