    Here is the place to discuss thoughts, questions and overall general discussions about the new Z4 while we wait for it to start shipping and can get some hands-on reviews.

    Just an FYI post to get started. For those that may not be aware, there are two variants this year....both named Moto Z4 (no Force model and no Play model). There is an Unlocked version available for pre-order through Moto right now, and a Verizon version coming June 13th.

    Just FYI.... according to a post on the Moto Forum the Z4 does not have Moto Voice and therefore no Moto - Driving Mode. I am really bummed about that.

    They should make a force model and make water proof Pogo pins. I put my z2 force in a water proof swim bag when swimming

    No Force model this year and no Play model. Just a Z4. We have to realize that Shattershield - Force phones are done.

    The Motorola unlocked version is being offered now with the moto 360 camera mod for $450. Is there any reason to wait a few more days for the Verizon (my carrier) version?

    Just a rumor. There are rumors suggesting Verizon will offer it for $100 less without the 360 Camera, straight up price. And another rumor suggests Verizon will offer it for $240 if you have an upgrade available and agree to their 24 month payment plan, so it would be $10 a month for 24 months. But again....these are just rumors at this point. The $450 - $499 price with the 360 Camera isn't bad if you want the camera.

    I went to Amazon and saw it with Alexa and the camera for $490 ready to ship.
    Ok, help me out. I have always bought my phones from my wireless carrier. How does it work with an unlocked phone? Do you just walk into the Verizon store with your unlocked phone and say "turn on my service"?

    You just put your existing SIM card in, turn it on and let it activate on the Verizon network. Then follow all other normal Android setup. The only reason you would need to go to Verizon if there was an issue recognizing your existing SIM. Which doesn't happen often. Other than that the only real difference is a non Verizon phone doesn't have the My Verizon app pre-installed and doesn't display "4G" for the data signal, it will display the standard Android data signal triangle symbol.

    How do the app's and data not on the sd card transfer?

    I've had Motorolas since my first bag phone in 1996 but have never done the above.
