I've rebooted multiple times without it updating apps. When the update has happened has been when the phone rebooted itself, which is what makes me think it's Verizon pushing out blind updates. It's only happened twice that I'm aware of, but I've only been aware of it because I was trying to use my phone and had to wait for the "updating app x of xx" to finish. I leave BT on most of the time because when my phone rings or I get a msg my headset beeps in my ear. Have to have hands free here, and can't take time to get bt turned on in order to take a call.
