    you dont. well, not really. when there's a system update, you'll get a prompt. you typically have to accept the update. if you get the notice and don't select to defer the update, it'll happen on it's own. a friend of mine was setting an alarm for every 12 hours to remind him to stop the update.

    that is really stupid that you cannot disable it. the most recent update must have been 100+ mbs .

    But why bother? System updates, AFAIK, doesn't count against your quota.

    WiFi. No worry about data usage on device.

    checked with verizon. updating system updates does count against data usage.

    Have you had a system update notice since this? I'm still running ICS and do not want to change to JB and get that annoying notice to install now/later every 12 hours. Wonder if I restrict BD for moto svcs, will it block the notice every 12 hrs?
