Today, when I picked up my Moto G 2nd gen, the screen wasn't working :| had to power it off and then it worked :| these are some reasons why I wish it had a removable battery

I just placed order for Moto G. I am using Moto Defy, i see Moto G only support Micro SIM. I am using normal SIM from BSNL on my Moto Defy. What should i do to get it changed to Micro SIM ? How long it take BSNL to get this SIM converted to Micro ?

Just go to the nearby shop and resize your sim to micro Sim

get it cut locally, shouldn't cost more than 20 Rs.

these stupid operators take way too much time to issue microsim even if you want to have it instead of normal sim when getting the connection. :banghead:

Some people say that cutting the sim can damage it beyond repair, and it's advisable to get a new micro sim issued instead.

I think such cases are really rare and there are millions of users using SIM cards cut by that punch machine type of thing without any problems. My Xperia Z Ultra has a really troublesome SIM slot because of its waterproofing body and flap but i've had no problems.

cutting the sim may cause signal drop.

Is there any legitimate source to verify this ? I'm not denying it, SIM card and electronics and other related things are really complicated stuff, but if you think plainly, the cut SIM only scraps off the plastic around the chip area, is it really going to make any difference to signal strength?
 
I cut my dad's sim when he upgraded to moto g and it gave problems from the first day itself....random call drops, sometimes out of network for hours, low signal was common. Initially I thought there is problem with the device itself but I used with other sim and it worked properly...
So we got new sim and no problems occured till now.

I guess the sim got cut improperly...

^ yeah improper cutting also happens, by the way I bought new nano sim instead of cutting since micro easy to cut than nano. If it is other operator sim is easy task they will activate in hours but it's bsnl so think about it

The thing is I'm new to the android ecosystem. There are multiple threads on XDA about this and all specify different methods. That's why I wanted someone experienced to point me some resource.

if you are still suffering from those lag issue, better download and reflash the stock rom (5.0.2) with complete wipe.
