A mobile phone virus is effecting the phone only. I never heard about a mobile phone causing an unconciousness, maybe it's because the radiation of the mobile phone or a noise that coming from it, maybe a high frequency noise. Viruses can make the phone unfungsional, so to prevent it try deactivating your extra connection while you aren't using it. Like bluetooth, infra red, or even wifi, especially GPRS that connects to the internet, home of the viruses. But there are also rumors that viruses can spread via text messages, so careful when you receive messages from an unknown number.

Viruses may attack the mobiles that have internet on them or capable of downloading file, images etc. Intall antivirus to prevent them.

yes me too have heard of that mobile phone thing that people become unconscious after they receive call from some particular numbers even i have heard that those numbers are flashed even on news channels the numbers are 9876266211 9888888888 9888854137 9888854135 and the numbers flashing on your screen with 0091 in starting rather than having +91 prefixed with them though i have only heard about these numbers but still the fact remains there is no loss for being alert
