    Just came from the Droid Maxx and its default home screen was always the center one.

    Is there any way on the Turbo to do the same? As of now the left-most screen is the default when I press the home key.
    I couldn't find anything in settings, and I too am used to the center screen being "home". That was one of the niggling factors that pushed me back to the Apex launcher -- infinitely more customizable than any other factory launcher, and resource friendly. Nova launcher is another good alternative. They both have free versions. I own the paid version of both, but prefer Apex.

    I miss visual voice mail on Sprint which was free. I miss it, but I'm not paying extra for it. It's bad enough I have to $15 a month for access to Good Messaging (also free on Sprint). /rant
    Basic visual voice mail is free on the Turbo.

    Okay, I'll ask the stupid question. What's the difference between basic visual voice mail and this new thing? Edit: Also, is basic visual VM a Turbo exclusive, or does everyone on Verizon get it now? There used to be a fee (like $3 per month?).

    Most of this can be answered by checking the Verizon website:

    Verizon has three levels of voice mail: Premium Visual Voice Mail, Basic Visual Voice Mail, and Basic Voice Mail. You can go to your "My Verizon" and "Change Features" and it will tell you more about the differences. I think these three options are available on any smartphone. Basic VM is free on any phone. Both PVVM & BVVM had a monthly fee on my old RAZR Maxx and has on my wife's Moto X. On the Turbo BVVM is showing as a free option & PVVM has a monthly fee which is waived for 30 days of a free trial period.

    I too am having trouble with the "OK Google" detection on any screen. When you check the box, you are prompted to say "OK Goolgle" three times to have the phone more easily recognize you. Goodle now is turned on... Moto voice works fine. Its just odd.

    Also, long press of a Bluetooth headset button on my droid maxx launched voice search. On the turbo it does not do anything.

    I too had issues with hotspot. And it ended up working the next day. Likely just an account issue related to moving to a new Sim / imei.

    I think basic visual voice mail is free on this phone with VZW.

    I am having issues with droid zap. I keep getting "Unfortunately, Droid Zap has stopped working" as soon as it opens. I have tried disabling/enabling the app and clearing the cache but it keeps doing the same thing. I also unplugged the Chromecast in the room in case it was related to that but didn't help either. Any ideas?

    I tried it and the Google Now setting won't record my voice. Motorola voice and my catch phrase work fine. But I cannot use the "ok Google" activation phrase while in Google Now.

    I've seen this on a bunch of different forums, but didn't see it here yet. Many people (including myself) are reporting that the wifi hotspot feature is not working. When you try to enable it give a message that your order could not be processes and you need to subscribe to Mobile Hotspot. I called verizion. They verified I have mobile hotspot in my share everything plan. Then got me to second level support who finally put in a ticket to engineering. We'll wait to see what they say.
    mine worked, out of the box

    Have you checked in settings and display area to see if you can change which is default home screen?
    nah, that's not a fix, no default home screen option. Seems that I get use to far left or I return to Nova.

    Command Center showing wrong appointment times
    I have the stock CC on my Turbo, running stock Launcher3. My question is how or even can I configure it. The 3 small dots on right of command center circle open the sides, 3 dots on left close it. When open it shows appointment times for appointments not on my personal calendar but apparently of all who share a calendar with me. I need to have a dozen co-worker calendars shared and synced with me, but to unclutter (when not needed), not all of them are set to display in the calendar program. My wife's is always displayed. How do I (can I?) configure Command Center to show only the appointments for my calendar? On a new phone I typically want to give stock a chance, this keeps me from bringing work-arounds from previous phones to a phone that doesn't need it. However though I look the Command Center app otherwise, this is a deal killer and I'll have to load one of my previously purchased widgets in place (none of those tell me how many minutes till it starts/stops raining at the location I am currently at).

    Immediately replaced People app with Contacts +, Dialer + and the Messages + free apps. The problem with the stock dialer (phone) is it always opens to the speed dial screen that apparently auto populates with most frequently/recently called. That doesn't help me, setting favorites on that app not an option so I moved on.
    Thx!

    I find that the lock screen "slide to unlock" is a bit laggy. I had this with my droid maxx too. I came from the note 3 with no unlock lag at all.

    The volume is too low. My X the volume could be so loud it'd hear my ears..the Turbo I'm pushing the phone in my ear trying to hear people. I'm hoping this can be fixed via software update? The Wi-Fi isn't as good either. My brother had a MAXX and just returned his turbo today as he couldn't connect to our wifi as far as his MAXX would. My turbo is the same way but I'm a lot closer to our router and range extender so I'm fine but the earpiece is a problem for me. Could these things be improved via a software update or do you think that's purely hardware related?

    I am on my second Turbo since their intro. Same problem in both. The home and back buttons both stop working occasionally. Continued pressing sometimes works, other times I gave up and pressed power to start over. Updates to the OS did not fix it. Verizon tech support has never heard of the problem. Did find that HTC experienced this on some models in the past according to web postings.---- Discovered the problem: I was gripping the case more firmly because of the slippery metal case. The skin from the base of my thumb was touching a portion of the front screen. That made the buttons inactive.

    There are at least 2 Turbo threads about this topic with suggestions to improve it. Check those out.

    Since I have been running ART on my Moto X(13) I switch my new Turbo to ART as well... Everytime I boot the phone it goes to the screen ANDROID IS UPGRADING with a countdown of about 62 apps. So switched back to DALVIK and works fine. However this never happened with my MOTO X(13).

    Try turning off Voice Privacy from within the Phone app. Also turn off Audio effects from within sound settings. This should help.

    Home screen being on the left is because Launcher 3 is basically a stripped down version of the Goole Now Launcher. Operates the same, except the GNL has the Left-most screen being Google Now. While GNL has a "Settings", it's only for GN features.

    I'm having an issue with Moto Voice that I can't speak my phrase. It won't let me make one because everytime I try it says it's too loud even though I'm in a completely silent room.

    With my screen on I can say Ok, Google and Google Now works just fine. Only Moto Assist.
