    Hello,
    I'm finishing my first week with my S7. Came from the iPhone 5s, which I was on for almost 3 years. Before that, a Droid Incredible for 3 years. So happy to be back on Android. So far, everything is going great and I'm really enjoying the phone. The only significant issue I've run into so far is that I'm having trouble with the Bluetooth connection in my 2006 Acura TL. My Droid Inc and iPhone 5 connected fine, so I'm thinking there's something wrong with the S7. It connected up fine, and it receives phone calls fine with my being able to answer the phone from the steering wheel buttons. But when making an outbound phone call it won't connect. If I dial a # and listen to the phone device, it's silent...but nothing is coming from the car speakers. I've tried hitting the Bluetooth button on the phone, but it's not helping. Was hoping somebody here might have some ideas.

    The other thing I'm trying to get setup is a family music sharing infrastructure. the only thing I like about iOS is the iTunes structure where my wife and kids could download or stream any of the music I bought on itunes. Now, I'm not talking about Apple music where it's a streaming service, or the Google Streaming Service. I'm talking about if I bought a song on itunes or Google Play, my family would have the ability to download it and have it on their devices too. The guy at the Verizon store said this existing in Google Play Music. Was he wrong?

    Thanks!

    If you bought anything on Google Play, as long as you use the same account on the devices, yes your family can download them. This includes movies and paid apps. I can't be exactly sure about Music though, since Play Music isn't available in my country.

    Play music works the same way (same account used on multiple devices will allow play music to work on all devices - with all music purchased by that account).
    Note that using the same account on multiple devices means everything (including Email/ drive/ docs/ contacts/ calendar/ android device manager/youtube/Chrome settings & browser history etc) will be visible on all devices.

    ^ The issue here is that all four us have different email address profiles on our phone. Not sure where this leaves me.

    Just make a shared account you will use for buying music and put it on all devices. You can have multiple emails on the phones.
