    Hi all, My son has lost the power and volume buttons from his Moto E XT1021. The phone still works and you can use the power and volume controls by sticking a cocktail stick in there, but obviously this is not a long term solution. I've had a really good internet search and just...

    ADB sees my device when its booted normally, however when I type "adb reboot bootloader" and it boots into bootloader mode adb just refuses to see the phone anymore. What can I do to fix this? I have reloaded the adb drivers and the motorola drivers and verified I have my phone in developer mode.

    Factory unlock vs unlock bootloader

    These are two different things, correct? For a Sprint-branded prepaid Moto E, I have to call Sprint to have them unlock it; it is nothing that I nor anyone else can do, correct?

    mobile network keeps disappearing

    The mobile network drops out, seemingly at random, a few times a day. The provider says there's nothing wrong on their end; I live in a city where reception is astoundingly good. Every time I have to completely turn off the phone; when restarted the network is there without problem. What...

    screen unlock can't be changed?

    I set my "screen unlock" to PIN, but changed my mind; I'd like to unlock with a swipe. I don't see how I can change it - settings / security / screen lock - if I go in there, it asks to confirm the PIN, but does not give the option of changing to swipe instead of PIN. Am I stuck with it?

    Stagefright vulnerability

    I just downloaded Stagefright Detector and it says my 2014 Moto E is still vulnerable. The only workaround is to switch SMS to Hangouts and turn off automatic retrieval of MMS messages. Why isn't Motorola hopping on this issue? I'm OK with an upgrade to 5.1, but Motorola hasn't made that...

    Text number of my Moto e phone.

    I would like to receive text alerts on my phone. From what I can find on the web, you need to know your carrier to do this. Since the Moto e phone is pre-paid and doesn't have a carrier, is it possible to still receive them? Thanks.

    Help USA Today Notifications

    I cannot see a way to turn off vibration on notifications for USA Today App. All other notifications make a sound but do not vibrate. I looked at the USA Today app and see that I can only turn on or turn off notifications. Where can I go to selectively select notifications type per app?

    Root Question about rooting

    So, the guides are pretty vague, to me anyway. Can someone throw down the barebones of what's going on? The link for the guide is the MOTO g, not the e. The links for custom recovery, unlock, etc.... It's all for Motorola MOTO E.... Is there one specifically for us?

    Help slow start

    I'm a latecomer to mobile phones - apologies if the answer to this is blindingly obvious. When I switch my phone on there is a 30 second or so series of Android animations before the home screen opens. Is there any way of getting rid of these annoying time-wasting pictures?
