Important Update

Just received our Kyocera Hydra about an hour ago and just received a Voicemail that says a new firmware package is ready to install , select ok or later, I tap later and then the message Important Update! This is a Mandatory software update due to the age of your current version.
It includes Ads and Free Avatar Messaging. However both can be disabled in the Settings menu.
There is no charge to use Avatar Messaging ...bla bla bla and it asks to Allow automatic updating. My question(s), Is the firmware and software updates legit and should they be installed? Current Android version is 4.3, Software version 1.010BT, Hardware version 0104. Otherwise Phone looks good, works on both Wi-Fi and 4GLTE.

    It is legit its just the update to kitkat. If your using a special program that isn't compatible with kitkat don't update.
