    Trac BLU Phones: Lingering Privacy Concerns?

    Pardon the double post, but I wanted to ask my question here (TF subforum) because TF markets the BLU brand. Mods, feel free to merge my other thread into here if desired.

    Several years ago, BLU was in trouble for selling phones with a software backdoor. A claim was made that installation of the backdoor was a mistake, but the problem persisted in a disguised form. Does anyone have concerns that such issues may still persist?

    I believe the general concern is that the phones may secretly send personal data to remote servers maintained by the original manufacturer.

    I don't see BLU phones discussed much in this forum. There was a member of Turk Forums who was a big fan of BLU phones (mostly BYOP models) and made reviews of different models.
