    I don't like to check-off "unknown sources" in the security section of my D800, however, my bluetooth app(BT Reader+) makes me do just that, in order for it to work. Does anyone else have this problem, or know of a solution? Thanks.:mad:

    Welcome to the forum

    If you didn't get the app from the Google Store it should only be necessary to enable that for the install and/or for updating it but you can, or should be able to, turn it off afterwords.

    If you got it from the Store it should be legit. I just don't see anything that would indicate you need to have accept from unknown sources turned on.

    Well, i'm running stock, and the device would not pair with LG bluetooth headphones, until i followed the directions on the phone, and checked-off that particular box. I did it today, but then forgot to uncheck that box until tonight. I'm just afraid that i'll download an app with a virus.:(

    The first thing I do is check unknown sources to allow my phone to download things from Amazon. So, I've unchecked it and tried pairing my LG Tone headset. The headset pairs just fine, so maybe I'm not understanding what it is that you're trying to do...

    Sorry, i've figured it out. I will say this though. The LAST thing i would do is check the unknown sources box, and download anything from Amazon. IMHO, you're flirting with virus city. I don't care for Amazon's security procedures.:p
