  1. my update to version 12 disabled my SIM card and locked me out of the Metro / T-Mobile network. I’m awaiting resolution from motorola.

  2. We are in the same boat. Called on Wednesday and I was told we would hear from them in 24 to 48 hours. Still nothing. Call today and Motorola said they are still waiting to hear from Android.

  3. Same problem here. Not sure why they don’t just issue new phone. Shouldn’t have to pay for a new one. Been five days now and nothing. Terrible customer service.

    • It totally sucks ! I hate the new update. Everything has changed from how I originally set it up.
      Your right, we should get new free phones !! I don’t even think that I was informed of the New 12 update !! I didn’t even pay my Bill this month.

  4. OMG!!! I am going thru the same thing… I think…. my phone automatically updated to the 12 and not even a week later, my phone just turned off and now i can’t turn it back on at all… WHAT DO I DO?

  5. I hate the 12 “upgrade” on my Moto G Stylus 5G (2021). Bubbles are more rude than popups. The pulldown blacks the whole screen out behind it, and they replaced Quick Settings Tiles with crappy big boxes with little tiny text in them that nobody can read. I wish I could downgrade to 10 cos 12 sucks.

  6. I HATE the 12 “downgrade” They removed many of the features I liked about android 11 and stuck garbage in it’s place or nothing at all. I HATE the new clock on the lock screen. That is a clock face for a watch not a cell phone.

  7. I will not upgrade to android 12……Wowsers. Thank you for letting us know. Good thing I checked. Turns your phone into a brick.

  8. I took have attempted to get help from Motorola. It’s beyond me why these phones are rated so high. I’ve hated this phone from day1. There nothing intuitive. I am so grateful for all of your comments about the 12 upgrade I haven’t installed it. THANK GOD I haven’t. The stinking notification is a pain but least I can use it. I to have called Motorola customer service which is a huge joke. Thank you all
