    Actually I have a problem with moto g(XT1033).

    when i am type anything in my phone it is vibrating. how to stop the vibrating.

    • simonsimon says

      Go to Setting –Language & Input, select the settings icon next to the keyboard you are using, then Un-check Vibrate on Keypress.

      If you also want to disable vibration when tap system buttons (home, return..), go to Settings–Sound, turn off “Vibrate on touch”.

        Simon I also have a problem… I recorded with the record audio button on a phone call but I can’t seem to find the recordings anywhere please help!!!

    • simonsimon says

      If you are using mobile data (2G or 3G), you need check with the phone company. If you are connecting to wifi, you need check with the administrator of the router or the network.

        i downloaded some songs via opera in moto g XT1033. but i couldnt find it. how can i find the songs.i checked that songs in downloads folder music folder. also i cant send songs via whatsapp. only voice record option available when i try to choose audio file to transfer.

        • simonsimon says

          You should be able to find it if you have any file browser (you may try ES File Explorer (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.estrongs.android.pop ), or if you connect your Moto G to a PC.

          Anyway, to share it with whatsapp, you can browse it with ES File Explorer, then long tap to select the items, tap the menu (More) button, you can share them through many apps.

          Sometimes, such downloaded files are not properly scanned and populated to music player. You can try to reboot the phone to see whether the music player can detect it.

          • Moto G XT1033 says

            how to change the camera ratio from 16:9 to 4:3. my camera is always shows 16:9. when i touch in 16:9 icon a skyblue colour line wil appear and disappear as widescreen ON/OFF mode. so please help how to change it.

          • simonsimon says

            Did you check the picture size?
            Anyway, using third-party camera apps sometimes is a better option. Camera 360 works with Moto G nicely. You can get all sizes as well. Also, the just- released Google camera is also very good.

    How to set up outlook email exchange server with all folders (Inbox, Sent, drafts, calender etc.) on Moto G? Also, is there any way to set up sync up time as ” Immediately when email arrives”? currently it shows sync up time max. 5mts which is not good.

    • simonsimon says

      You set the email server as Exchange, then all folders should be synced.

      For sync time, you just need turn on push notification.

  3. Srinivasarao says

    I have some docs and PDF’s stored in MOTO G internal storage. Not able to read them. can one suggest me how to read without using wi-fi ?

    • simonsimon says

      You need some apps to read PDF file. If the PDF files are corrupted, there is no way to read them.

      You can also copy the PDF file to PC (using USB cable to connect the Moot G to the PC), then read from the PC.

  4. Abhik Paul says

    In KitKat version of moto g, I am not able to use the mass storage facility for USB. Mtp and ptp is supported though but I am unable to transfer PDF. Please help

  5. Murthy says

    My language is changed to Arabic suddenly (on it’s own). I cannot see the equivalent English language. How can I change back to English.
    All I can recognize is only by icons. Once into Settings, all is in Arabic.

    • simonsimon says

      You need figure out the language and input button and try to set the language to English.

      You may use Google translate on your pc to translate English terms info Arabic. The roughly, you can get the correct buttons.

  6. kmal says

    i have copied pdf and vlc files from pc to moto g but they are not visible in phone .how i can open them??

    • simonsimon says

      The simple way is to copy and paste. If you want to show it as an image, you can take a screenshot and forward the screenshot.

    Hi Simon,

    From the day I purchased my Moto G the battery duration was very less. I use battery saver option, stopped notifications for every app i Installed, using battery doctor app and i can see few apps r running automatically after 2-3 hrs, i stopped running those apps and few hrs later they are again running in background. I also use below setting too but not at all use.
    setting-developer option-back ground process limit -> no background process.

    Please can you help me regarding this ? I don’t want any apps to run until i manually open them. Within 10 hrs my battery is draining. Yesterday while i sleeping it shown 30% battery remaining, closed all the apps and make sure no apps running in background. But when I checked in the morning my phone got switched off.

  11. munna says

    when i getting msg from whatsup or any messenger my mobile is vibrating so tell how to off that setting ?

    • simonsimon says

      Inside each of the app (messaging and WhatsApp), you can tap the menu key (3 vertical dots), tap settings. In notification section, you can then turn off the vibrate.

    • simonsimon says

      There are no such settings. It is very hard to define a session.

      Anyway, you may check play store to find out whether there are any apps for this.

    • simonsimon says

      This is not a problem. The message center number is set by the phone company and saved in the sim card. Motorola doesn’t provide an option for you to modify it, but Moto G has no problem to read it.

      If you really modify it (probably you should not), you can put the sim card in some Samsung or Nokia phones to modify. One you finish the modification, it should be saved in the sim card and it will be used in Moto G.

      Anyway, if you have any doubts on the settings of sms and MMS, you should call the phone company, they will then very likely send you a message. One you accept the message, the settings will be updated for the sim card.

  12. ravi kannan says

    i have brought moto g in uk and after coming to india iam not able to use indian sim (airtel),as it is asking me to type the pin code ,which is actually not assigned ,and even after going to the airtel showroom or any phone service center i did’nt get any solution

    • simonsimon says

      Did you encrypt your Moto G?

      What does it say when it asks the pin code? Pin for the phone or for the sim card or for encryption?

  13. A K Solanki says

    i am not satisfied with motog mobile. how can be upload a ms file or video in motog through data cable. how can we use otg in motog. please tell us. thanks

  14. Simon F says

    hi, not sure if this is correct thread, but I am having difficulty finding the settings I selected in battery saver mode and I am at a loss to where they are?
    the options were along the lines of below a certain (user selected) percentage of battery (I changed from 15% to 10% I think) it would turn off selected options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Auto Sync, Screen Brightness and Auto-rotate screen etc.
    any idea where this is? has the latest software update altered these settings?
    thanks in advance.

    • simonsimon says

      I think you only can toggle on/off power saver (under settings–battery). There are no further settings for users. Most of the settings are probably hard-coded.

      Probably, you used some third-party apps to get these settings.

      • Simon F says

        Yeh, that’s my problem unfortunately. But I’m 99.99% sure I never installed any app to change these settings (and I can’t see anything in my Play history either). It was like an “initial setup” on the battery saver options??
        On the basis I can’t change anything on the phone, what apps are available that will allow me to do this?

          • Simon F says

            Noted you don’t use such apps.

            Thanks for your opinion, but you can keep it to yourself in future, I never asked if you thought it was necessary and find your mark a bit snide and not at all helpful.

            Clearly I have a technical issue and therefore find it completely necessary to establish how to find and change settings that I have (in whatever fashion) already changed – not an unreasonable assumption to make.

            Unfortunately assuming you might be able to offer more insight than “probably, I used some third party app” together with your opinion on necessity of said apps wasn’t as reasonable…..

          • simonsimon says

            My point is using such apps seldom improved battery life. This is the reason why I always recommend not to use such apps.

            I do understand different users may have different needs.

    Hi,

    I have started using my office outlook in my moto G mobile few days back.
    i am able to view all the mails of inbox, sent items, junk etc. etc. but in drafts folder it doesn’t display mails.
    when i explore settings and other parameters ; i have observed that only for draft folder “sync this folder” option is disabled.
    i ma not able to enable that option by selecting that check box while in other folders i am able to do it.

    can you please guide me the steps by which i can access my drafts mail also in my mobile.

    looking forward for your positive reply.
    thanks in advance!!!

    • simonsimon says

      This is a known limitation of Exchange ActiveSync protocol. The draft folder cannot be synced.

      If you really, really need this feature, you may try MailDroid app (NOT recommended).
