Default Symantec Mobile AntiVirus

Mobile AntiVirus programs... is it really necessary or is just a money making scheme?

The Symantec Mobile AntiVirus is already in it's 5th rendition, meaning it's probably been around for a while now.
After seeing that such a program is available, I did a very small search for mobile virii and roughly gathered that it's mostly just the Symbian S60 phones that're really in danger.

Has anyone encountered a mobile virus/trojan/worm before or use an Antivirus program? If the latter is true, I'd like to know why you decided to use it.
