Good to know, that will explain why there is no more listing of Blu phones at Amazon. Now that will open up a whole lot of questions, which other Chinese phone (Huawei, Honor, ZTE, TCL, Nubia, Xiaomi, Meizu, etc) has the same privacy issues as Blu?

When we store our data (video, photos, doc files.....) in free storage (e.g. MyDrive, AsusDrive, MiDrive) we did not think much where the data is stored. Actually they are stored in MyDrive (US), AsusDrive (ROC China aka Taiwan) , MiDrive (China PRC mainland).

I bought 2 weeks ago the Blu x2 Life 64/4 Gb RAM. It was $250 Can. Now it is $400 list I think. So far so good. I bought this as it is easy to return. Well..There is zero need thereof now
