OK....in case it helps others...Voda UK WiFi Calling doesn't work on the Motorola Edge. Tried every which way but no luck. Voda says it will work one day soon when Motorola update software. Mmmmmmm....not sure I believe that one.
managed to get it working on the oneplus8pro but not via custoemer services, had to downgrade something and dit a setting. I now have ht option availbe to me and from what i can tell it works
Yeah, lots of Voda CS just deactivate and reactivate WiFi Calling on your account. Mostly, that doesn't work. Keep calling or chatting and you'll eventually find one that will actually send the provisioning. Sometimes they have to do it a couple of times for it to work. As for my original question...I've ordered the Motorola Edge, so I'll find out for myself soon if I can get it working :S
I specifically ask them to send the WiFi provisioning to my sim, not just click settings on my Vodafone account online/the app which you can do perfectly fine without them. Like radioagogo says, you have to keep trying. I ended checking that dialer code loads until one day after like the 10th call it was finally done.
I will give them a go, not in any immediate need to do so. It was activated on my account, disabled it then re enabled it but that did not work.

Should i buy this or wait for the Motorola G9 Power? but only if it a 6000 mAh battery.
I was set to buy this phone till I found out Motorola has removed the compass in this years model when the G8 Plus had it, other than that it's pretty much a perfect large screened stock Android based phone, they also removed the dual speaker setup of the G8 Plus too but I personally didn't care about that

Honor 9X vs Motorola G8 Power?
I currently have a Honor 9 Lite and looking to upgrade. Budget is no more than £200 ideally. So many to choose from, but from what I can find, these 2 seem to be really good! (t… Read more
I'm trying to not buy chines products, specially tech ones. I'm aware that's very difficult because almost everything is made there, but is time to think about the economy of this side of the world, and maybe if everyone push, companies will begin to bring factorys back in their original countries, rather than use cheap workers, and in some cases bordering slavery.
I still have the 8x (same as 9 lite?) and have an order pending with ee (like others) for a Moto G8 Plus. 9x didn't appear to be much of an upgrade over the 8x apart from the cameras.
I bought the Honor 8X right after it came out about 2 years ago for £208. The 9X is almost the same processing power, seems like buying in 2 year old tech with a new camera would not be a smart move!

Wow, I didn't realise they'd crammed in a 90Hz display too. This thing has really screwed with the OnePlus Nord launch.
I usually find Moto phones a little Meh to be honest and although this is just another pretty unexciting handset from Moto the price per spec is actually pretty keen. The 765g SoC paired with decent cameras (on paper) and a decent sized 5000MaH battery is as good as anything Xiaomi , RealMe, Oppo and Huawei are offering right now Now if only they'd squeezed in a an amoled display.....

Help! Mobile does not start Motorola Z2 Force
Hope you can help me. The wifes phone was showing this And now it's off and won't turn back on? Can anyone help it doesn't charge and when connected to a laptop nothing happens… Read more
I was hoping if any one with experience of repairing mobiles could comment. Is it worth replacing the battery?
The phone started booting itself last night. And sometimes went back to normal. I checked online and some places suggest that changing the battery will solve this issue. The power and volume button still do not work. I'm still looking for another phone but want to avoid Motorola now
That's true. Will be backing soon. Lol
Good news, now at least the data can be recovered.
Well the phone started up as normal this evening which is good. The time and date was way off and the screen is broken. Theres a green line now down the screen. Also the up volume and power buttons do not work. On the look out for a new mobile now

£549.95 - Motorola Edge - UK Model - Dual SIM / Solar Black / 128GB + 6GB RAM - Snapdragon 765G Smartphone

There's a good camera review here: https://www.dxomark.com/motorola-edge-plus-camera-review/
Also excess glare on the edges when watching anything, unless you watch it directly in front of you, and don’t get me started on screen protectors...
A review I saw (of an early pre-released) commented on how easy and annoying it was to accidentally launch apps just by handling the phone's edges, I would agree that they'd likely implement something like the Mate 20 I'm still not really convinced of the real value of edge display, yes it is amazing what they can do but it means more glass surface to break, but then again I am clumsy :D
My Mate 20 Pro has a setting where you can limit accidental touches on the home screen via the curved edges, I’m sure a phone with an aggressive edge like this would have them, would be very surprising if it didn’t especially with it being on Android 10.
That review from MrMobile showed the edges were often registering false presses and opening apps accidently just by handling the phone. Hopefully they'll sort that out. I think this will drop £200 within 3 months. I can't see many real uses that outweigh the fact the edges are now more delicate than a typical plastic or metal edged phone....but I think that's the point these days, make a phone as fragile as possible to ensure regular replacement by customers :D

Need a charger and suitable cable for my phone
I lost the charger of my Motorola G5 Plus a while ago. I take it I'll most likely need to buy a cable as well as these charges appear not to come with cables. Preferably a charger … Read more
Can't seem to find anything. Where do people buy these from? Need a cable as well I would imagine
Time I got a new TV.
Or plug in a TV USB port to charge. +1 for anker though
USB Power draw is negotiated. It's not like a normal power supply where simply providing a higher capacity one will let the device draw more, the power supply ('charger') needs to support the same power communication standards as the device requesting power. Looking around the G5 Plus appears to support the Qualcomm's QuickCharge 2.0. Fortunately this was one of the most popular of the third party power extentions to USB and I believe newer versions are backwards compatible so there's plenty of choice of chargers supporting Qualcomm Quick Charge.
Anyone will do I'm guessing from what you are saying?

Ah ok that makes sense. Thank you! I didn't think about Google holding the info!
I got the P30 pro deal on here. Google account saves all WiFi settings etc. When I went to set up a hot spot the other day, it came up the name was "OnePlus 5T" which was my last phone which I had used the hotspot on before. So your hotspot info is also synced to Google account, and used the name you were using on your old phone.
Not retained by sim. Somebody has actively changed the hotspot name,
unless you have some bizarre 3rd-party hotspot app that requires remote
login or some cross-handset back-up app.
The phone was brand new sealed direct from Motorola so don't think it would have been a return. Just weird that my old phone was Huawei P Smart and thats what came up as hotspot. .. wondered if maybe SIM retains the last detail it used to be a hotspot or something like that
Somebody changed the hotspot name (maybe before you even purchased the phone that was sold as new even though it was a cust-ret).

I've said it before - it can often be about raising awareness. I will soon be looking for a new phone for the mother, and something like this is ideal. Thanks, as always @MrSwitch - dont stop what you're doing because of the moaners!

Motorola One Zoom £259.43 through work discount scheme (maybe uni days too?) with eCoupon on page
Firstly I am guessing this will be removed by the mods as it's not 'open too all'. Thanks to the other moto deals posted @jazzuk777 and @MrSwitch prompting me to have a look at… Read more
Even sweeter with the extra points/cashback. I am still in two minds with it not being Android One.
@MrSwitch @tcyjohnny Just checked on my employer's portal and the same offer is there as well. In case anyone is curious, the portal is operated by Next Jump. In the case of Lenovo, it is a click through to the Lenovo site. Secondly, the portal is also offering 15x points which effectively translates into a 15% cashback on the final price.
I'll PM switchy, plus it's not all about getting heat in deals. If I've helped one other person out, I am happy.
Which work scheme was it? And Um.... Heat added (if I could) Though the Samsung offers seem to stay as deals, weird this one hasn't. (confused)

Following on from my post above, here are some possible solutions for any one else getting the green or purple lines on their Moto X Force (Droid 2 Turbo) - https://www.protectpages.com/blog/motorola-turbo-2-green-line-screen/
Not sure how many are still subscribed here (AKA rocking their Moto X Force?), but within the last hour...I had the 'green line' on my first Moto X Force within a week of purchase. I switched to a new model which was find until it suffered from the battery problem (as covered in this thread) and had to have that replaced under warranty, now this.The battery work was February 2017, I think because of that they extended the warranty for 1yr,....obviously not far enough to cover me now. I'll have a look around the web for info on fixing the screen yourself and also see what the charge would be, but I think it's time for an upgrade.
Fyi. I installed a new battery and everything is going ok now. Phone even lasts longer on a single charge.
yes me too aroudn 20% but when plugging it in still shows it has charge, it happens on load.
Not sure if its a coincidence but since the update when I am either charging or not (mainly charging) and I unlock the phone it drops my wifi and switches to 4G then back to wifi. Its annoying, still does it after a total reset. Also a few times when my battery has reached around 20-25% and I go to use it it will switch off as battery exhausted but when I plug it in it shows around 20%. Nothing has changed in settings, have checked what I can check but thats my two main issues.

The price is similar for both, so other differentiating factors are listed below... The G5S Plus has: - A screen with higher resolution; - A better chipset and CPU; - Greater capacity and more RAM (depending on model selected); - A slightly better camera; - Fingerprint scanner on the front, if you prefer that. The G6 has: - A slightly larger screen; - Battery with greater capacity; - Fingerprint scanner on the rear, if you prefer that; - Will receive Android updates (potentially) earlier and for longer since it’s more recent.
compare them on gsmarena.com for most users, its which phone is cheaper.
