Moto G owners facing problems after Android 4.4 update

Motorola recently updated the Moto G to Android 4.4, but it turns out the update brought some troubles as well. Users are complaining that after the update, they are facing several issues. Below is the list of bugs that you might be facing if you have updated your Moto G:

  • lose mobile signal
  • display ‘No Sim’ icons,
  • fall into Aeroplane mode (while not displaying Aeroplane Icon status)
  • Mobile signal can often be recovered by swapping into and out of Aeroplane mode.
  • Pop-up errors about being in Aeroplane mode while attempting to make calls during signal problems.
  • Aeroplane mode observed in about phone status (while no aeroplane mode shown on icons)
  • Popup errors – the process “” has stopped
  • Not specific to individual SIM cards – multiple SIMs (cutdown/original confirmed as impacted)
  • Suggestion that it only occurs with mobile data enabled – to be investigated.

moto_g_shells_croppedWell, these are a lot of bugs, but you can relax because Motorola is aware, and they are working on a solution. However, such problems happen rarely because the update is always tested on the device before official launch, but you never know when the bugs will show up.

Any Moto G user out there facing such issues? Let us know in the comment box below.

    2015-06 : Brand new Moto-G phone microphone not working .. in calls as well as for apps that rely on Mic. Unless i put my mouth directly on the Mic, the device barely registers the sound.

    • max

  • bhargavi

    My issue is mobile data.I enabled mobile data.But it is not working..

    • max

      i get this too

  • john

    Mic broken I think people can’t hear me speak on the other side during a call.. Please help!

  • J. Paul Roe

    I’m really happy with my Moto G but I have the same problem that every other user seems to be having…no one can hear me on a phone call.

    I’ve been using a bluetooth headset as a workaround and it works just fine, but it’s kind of annoying to have to dig it out of my bag just to receive a call. I’ve tried updating all the apps, clearing all data, etc.

    I only have one thing left to try…cleaning all of the crud and dust out of the microphone hole. Apparently that’s solving the problem for a lot of people. =|

    Dear sir,
    I bought Moto g first gen. Its working good. I have upgraded to lollypop version. Its doing quite good. But after few months suddenly phone became white as if we have applied white color theme. How would it look When we try to see through a film cover, in the same way I am using the mobile. I restarted my mobile, but it showed me that android is getting upgraded. But I am able to use the applications as I could see them in black n white color while using or texting somebody. Definitely I could say that its not the problem of the screen, there is a problem in user graphical interface itself. Kindly provide a solution. Please do reply to my email id.
    Thanks & Regards,

    This same problem started as soon as I put otter box defender on phone. I think it may be the otter box.
