SD card access depends on apps. Actually Motorola does not impose restrictions on SD card access for apps (Samsung did impose). Essentially, any apps in Moto G can access SD card and create folders in root level.
USB will not function if the screen is locked. This is to protect your data from unauthorized access.
After a few tries, it should allow you to use backup PIN/password for the pattern.
In Android Lollipop, the runtime is always ART. There are no other options.
Normally, Moto G will reconnect to last connected device automatically. But this depends on the accessories as well.
You can test to disconnect, power off the accessories, then power on again to see whether it can reconnect.
Anyway, if the phone cannot even play the pre-installed ringtones when you set it, you may check with then local Motorola service center.
Not sure. But you may try to draw the pattern a bit slower.
Probably, you have to backup the phone and reset the phone.
For apps, you can try to use Helium app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.backup&hl=en
For SMS and call log, you can find apps in Play store.
For photos, you can back them up to Google+ (with Photos app)
Contacts, gmails are always synced with your Google account. Backup is not necessary.
For other downloaded files, manually copy them to your PC.March 24, 2015 at 11:29 am in reply to: Loss of dual sim functionality on Moto G2 after Lollipop update #1154
The ! next to signal strength bar indicates no data connection. It also appears if mobile data connection is not stable.
You can check the network status in Settings–About phone–Status. Check cellular network type and cellular network status.
For your case, did you set the priority to voice? You should enable mobile data on only one of the sim cards.
Which voice command? For Google Now voice command, you can go to All apps–Google settings–Search & Now–Voice –OK Google detection, to disable it.
But for Google Now launcher, you cannot remove the Google search bar. You can try other launcher if you want to remove the Google Search bar.February 22, 2015 at 2:40 am in reply to: DualSim data issue. Need sim2 permanently disabled #1111
In that case, you can simply call the phone company to disable mobile data (they may call it GPRS or whatever) for SIM card 2. It should be free and the SIM card 2 will then never use mobile data.February 21, 2015 at 2:44 am in reply to: DualSim data issue. Need sim2 permanently disabled #1107
In the dual SIM settings, you can specify one for data.
Also, for pre-paid SIM cards without expensive data plan, you should turn off mobile data globally and turn on only when you need it.
Moto G does not support Miracast (wireless display). Please note, the cast screen button is for Chromecast and only works on Nexus devices.
But you can use Chromecast to mirror (cast) phone screen to TV (you need also install the Chromecast app, in addition to get the Chromecast dongle). http://allaboutchromecast.com/android-screen-casting-for-chromecast-is-now-supported-on-all-android-devices-with-kitkat-4-4-2-or-later/
Any notification on Moto G? does it charge the phone?
Do you get any notification on the phone?
Can you verify that the driver is installed successfully in Control Panel–Programs and features?
Not sure about this issue. The cause for each accident may be different, although the syndrome is similar (not connected). As I know, there are no serious bugs on wifi connection in Moto G 2014.
Did you get any specific errors?
