    A couple weeks ago I started noticing Bluetooth showing up in the running apps when optimizing battery life with the battery doctor app. Coincidentally, I had searched bluetooth wireless speakers on google at the same time it would start on its own (I have never used Bluetooth, like ever. It is not turned on, and never has been in this phone until yesterday when I switched it on then off because what could it hurt.) and since then I force stop the application several times a day, almost every time i boost or optimize. I have no reason to use BT on this phone, and I even tried to uninstall the app altogether, unsuccessfully. I try not to be overly suspicious but from what I know of Bluetooth capabilities, I really do not want it starting on its own and doing whatever the hell it is doing- transmitting my personal data, by my own fallible speculation. Could this be an installed app with bluetooth permissions or something? How would I find out which one it is? How is bluetooth running in the background without being enabled? How can I stop this? All input is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
