    Does anyone know of a bluetooth app, that works without having to check off "unknown sources" in the security section? Thanks.

    Sorry, I'm not sure what you're referring to. The Unknown Sources option is for installation of apps from sources other than Google Play Store. What kind of Bluetooth app are you looking for, and for what function?

    I just want an app that will pair my LG phone, with my LG bluetooth headphones.

    You shouldn't need an app--the BT headphones should be able to pair with the phone. Can you describe the steps you're following to pair the headphones, to make sure everything is correct?

    Well, i never tried that. I just assumed that i needed an app. O.K., tomorrow i'll just turn on the headphones, tap on bluetooth, and see if it pairs. Thanks.

    Make sure you read the manual for your headphones--different devices may have different steps to pair.

    I re-read the manual today, and my headphones(LG BT750) are supposed to be paired with the BT bluetooth app. Also, the app will not work unless "unknown sources" is checked. I haven't found another app in the Google Store that will pair with those headphones. This really sucks, but i guess that i'll have to live with it.

    I've never heard of Bluetooth headphones requiring an app to pair with. The steps are usually as follows:

    1. On your phone, go to Settings>Bluetooth, and switch it on.
    2. Turn on your Bluetooth headphones, and press the button for pairing.
    3. On your phone, tap the "Scan for Devices" option in the Bluetooth menu.
    4. Wait a few seconds, and see if the headphones show up in the list.
    5. Tap the headphones in the list, and select the option to pair.
    6. If it asks you to enter a pairing code, see if there is one mentioned in the manual. Otherwise, try something like 1111 or 1234.

    I'll try it again. I followed those exact steps, however, i didn't see a "pairing button" on the headphones.

    Update: O.K. I figured it out. That app which needed "unknown sources", was also a reader app for multiple bluetooth devices. Deleted it, and was still able to pair. Thanks for your help.
