    I just bought a new BLU smartphone few weeks ago

    About a week after purchase, I began seeing this "Wireless Update" thing, popping up all by itself, and trying to download.

    Naturally, I let it proceed. It downloads fine, but each time I click "INSTALL", I get the error :

    "Unzip Error"

    I tried contacting BLU support, and they said to open the Wireless Update App, and clear both data and cache.

    However, upon reading/researching several online forums, it seems that this so-called wireless update may not be what it seems: many have claimed that it installs some kind of virus/malware onto one's BLU device.

    For now, I have disabled all notifications for this app, and also disabled auto-updates.

    So, is this app-update legit? Or is it a trojan virus?

    Thanks

    I think you have different problem. You should start a new thread for your topic.

    You should take @lunatic59's advice and start a new thread, since the problem you're having is not related to this thread's issue. :)

    If WhatsApp, youtube and messaging don't work then the issue might either be your account or your data connection.
