    The latest version of my app is causing the following to be displayed by Kaspersky
    Threat Detected : HEUR:Trojan-Spy.AndroidOS.SmsThief.f
    It does this on both the device and my PC.

    I have narrowed it down to the Phone lib.
    I am using version 2.26.
    The latest version of the app was the first to use this lib.
    If I take this lib out, there is no problem.

    Any advice welcome.

    That's just a false positive.

    Agreed.
    But it's a bit tricky trying to explain that to all my users!
    Anyway, the file was sent to Kapersky as a False Positive, and they have confirmed this.
    They say it will be fixed in the next update.
