hmmm i have androidseven andhavent received crap yet foran update
Yeah, I'm marshmallow and haven't had any updates either... I wonder how dangerous it is if you don't use the Bluetooth much, because mostly I don't.
I would imagine that as long as you keep Bluetooth off for the most part, you shouldn't have an issue with it unless somehow they figure out how to turn it on remotely. Me on the other hand, I use Bluetooth almost religiously between my at home headsets and in my car, so I probably have more to be concerned with. May just need to start turning it off when I don't need it. Problem is, that is easier said than done.
