    Just wanting to know what "Trusted Devices" is all about. I've seen several threads mentioning it, but don't see anything on my Turbo to activate this feature. Thanks!

    Thanks Ollie - I figured out that if I use a Lock screen, then I have the option when connecting to a blue tooth device to enable it as a "Trusted Device." I normally don't use a lock screen, so I was never given that option. It all makes sense to me now.
    Something more must be coming with 5.0.0?

    It allows you to bypass lock screen. So Bluetooth devices like car, headphones, or wearables anytime they are connected it allows you to skip through without entering a pin or pattern.

    No problem. Thanks for the additional info regarding Trusted Places. I was about to ask if there was an option for Trusted WiFi networks, but you took care of that for me as well. I hope that 5.0 really works well with our new Turbos.

    There are apps on the app store that already do WiFi unlocking.
