My phone's been on KitKat this whole time and it was fine the first day and a half, but now the data is painfully slow...I've only used 1GB of my 5GB limit of high speed data so I don't understand. Yes the Moto G can only hit 3G but until last night it was doing just fine. It just suddenly slowed down. I've e-mailed T-Mobile about it, but I know it's not the OS because the first thing I did when I got the phone was update it, and for over 24 hours the speed was great.
I'm wary of doing a factory reset so soon after getting it because that annoys me to no end, but if I have to then I will. If anyone knows of any tips/suggestions to help, that would be appreciated. Data aside, this is definitely phone is the best I've had. I also hope 4.4.3 comes sooner than later, regardless.
EDIT: Seems to be OK now? That was weird. Hope it doesn't slow down again.
It's gotta be tmobile. I haven't had a single issue with incoming or outgoing data via wifi and you'd think if it's the OS then I should've had that issue. I've had this for about 6 weeks, not a single problem with wifi data, I doubt it's the system.
However, I'll tell you that sending SMS messages has been a pain and a half. In many cases I'll end up sending double messages or receiving double messages. That's not an issue with the moto G/android though as my brothers who have LG and alcatel phones have the same exact issue. I also can't send or receive picture texts because of issues with the data policy.
edit: you seem to know how to do things in terms of setting up the moto G nicely...can you tell me some of the good "standard" apps you're using and why? Like are you booting up with the stock stuff or are you using new stuff? Anything to help keep data use limited? etc.
