Even though Motorola’s Moto G was one of the first few devices to receive the Android 4.4.2 update, it doesn’t all seem to be smooth sailing. The company’s official support forums are filling up with complaints from users who are experiencing intermittent loss of cell signals on the Moto G after installing Android 4.4.2. Some even complain that the device loses connection with the SIM card altogether, thus effectively making its cellphone function worthless. Users did not experience these problems prior to updating to Android 4.4.2.

These issues don’t appear to be permanent though, somes users find that simply turning the phone off and on does the trick, however it is a nuisance nonetheless having to go through this pointless ritual multiple times a day. The issues aren’t limited to a particular region or a single carrier, they seem to be widespread, and have also been spotted on a Verizon CDMA Moto G.

Given the fact that the issues didn’t exist prior to the software update, it would be a safe bet to assume that the update has got something to do with it. Fortunately, Motorola’s engineers are working on finding out a solution and when they finally do come across one, they’ll roll out it as an update. Though it remains to be seen just how look will that end up taking.
