So, this happened; BLU Phones Sending Personal Data To Chinese Server
As the one guy in the audience who uses a BLU phone [An Energy XL - not one of those effected], I feel I should speak up. This is my second phone from BLU, and I doubt it'll be my last. They make some very good stuff for the price. But that's not why I'm typing. It's this; they owned up to the problem, figured out how to fix it, and life goes on. They did exactly what you'd want a company to do when something like this happens. Now, only Google, T-Mobile, and the NSA can see my SMS and call history again, as the Gods intended.
