  1. What will the phone do when this virus has downloaded? My phone went out saturday, it just turns on and off continuously.

  2. The virus was pretty bad it would send out text messages to premium services that would charge your account ish-loads of money. As long as you don't download anything from anywhere except the android marketplace you should be okay. The virus was being spread through third party sites.

    Sounds like you have a problem with the battery connector, you might should take it to a store and have them look at it if you can.
