arvis: I have telecom and 2degrees sd cards in the phone. I only get both of them to work, when the data is disabled on 2 degrees. Alternatively, only 2 degrees is working. Anyone had similar experience? Any workaround? 

No.  One SIM must be able to do 2G.  If you try to get the second one to do 3G the first one  will try to do 2G and if it can't will disable..  SAme it you try to puit in 2 Telecom / Skinny SIMs , only one will work at a time..


thanks, Old3eyes.

This was unfortunately the only thing stopping me from purchasing the Moto G.

A 2degrees sales assistant was even kind enough to let me use the service menu to try and force both radios to use 3g - but no dice.

Hopefully someone will come out with a custom firmware/rom that will let you utilize both 3g radios at the same time. Very slim chance but it's happened with one of the Experia devices I think.

I see there is a "universal LTE" version on Amazon due for release on June 30 for US$219..  Wonder how universal the LTE will be??   Moto G LTE version on Amazon

Are amazon not doing their free shipping over $125 any more? Or is this excluded? Still $250 shipped to NZ is pretty compelling.

Just beware it's not a high end handset. The big bezel and general design is a bit cheap. It's great value, fine for most people, but maybe not for power users.

$220 USD for the white Moto G with LTE is a pretty sweet deal. 




All comments are my own opinion, and not that of my employer unless explicitly stated.

Just need confirmation on the LTE/GSM bands as it is marked LTE Universal.

As they are launching LTE in the UK with luck we might get band 28.

The Micro SD card is great, but it appears they are dropping Dual SIM.

Now Dual SIM with Primary 4G and secondary 3G would be awesome.

The Moto E has just been released. Key differences:
 - Screen is 4.3" instead of 4.7", with lower resolution 540×960 pixels (but still enough)
 - Dual core SnapDragon 200 instead of quad core SnapDragon 400
 - No front camera (bad for skype etc)
 - Has SD Card, looks the same
 - LTE option

Price around US$130. Sounds like a good phone for my Mum, who's struggling with a Telecom cheapie.

Don't forget the dual SIM version arrive some months after the single SIM one was launched.   As the dual SIM version was aimed more at the GSM world I wouldn't hold my breath for a dual SIM and LTE..

Sadly Universal LTE doesn't include Band 28

According to that Amazon product page, it also doesn't support band 3 (1800MHz), making it useless for 4G in NZ..

Listed LTE bands: 2, 4, 5, 17 = 1900, 1700, 850, US 700MHz B block

Bands 3, 7, & 20 (1800, 2600, 800) are the important ones for European LTE, so I suspect this 'universal' business is a misnomer & the European 4G Moto G will have completely different band support. Don't buy the US 4G model, it's no more use on 4G in NZ than the existing dual SIM 3G model is.
