    You're welcome. I'm no expert reviewer, that's for sure. . But I wanted to share my personal thoughts and ramblings.

    I've had my Z4 for about a day now, and I'm getting a random (seems to be random) audio alert/notification, every 2-3 hours. There are no visible notifications or messages on the screen, and nothing is running in the background. I've turned NFC off. Wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

    Might have figured it out -- probably pilot error, my bad. When I transferred my data and settings from my old moto, I don't think the z4 has all the audio tones/sounds that my old phone did, and it just assigned a default sound to incoming emails -- at 100% volume level. Since I assigned a new sound to emails, I haven't heard it since. Thanks for your reply.

    Yep, that would do it. I didn't think about that because I never copy data from one phone to another, have had way too many issues with that over the years. I set up all new phones as new and download & configure apps. It takes longer but has better results in the long run. Congrats on the new phone!

    And here is an edit from my earlier notes. The Z4 Launcher does have an App Icon Shape option (Circle, Square, Squircles, etc.). The Verizon version comes set with that silly App Flash as the default home screen Swipe Left option. I disabled app flash and set it to Google. Once I rebooted my phone and checked the Launcher options again, there was the App Icon Shape option. So if you buy the Verizon version and change the Home screen swipe left from App Flash to Google you might have to reboot to see all Launcher options.

    Good stuff y'all.. Nice reviews and keep them thoughts and findings coming... I'm still holding hope for a higher pro type from Moto... As someone that switches phones all the time I need just a bit more... No issues though great products at all ranges is good thing

    Got mine today. The in-store pickup was not a smooth process. Not because of the employees, I made a goof doing the upgrade. They worked it out. I spent most of the afternoon transitioning from the Z Force to the Z4. I did the transfer thing. Took forever and was not a great experience. My contacts are a mess. Will report back if I ever get it as I had in on the Z Force.

    That's the reason I never select the transfer data option. It takes longer but I always setup as new. Are your Contacts saved to your Google account? Did you let Verizon do their Contact Transfer process? If you did that is well known to create duplicates if you also have Contacts syncing with your Google account. I don't let them mess with my new phones. If your Contacts are saved to your Google account they automatically sync with any phone you log into.....it's easy & simple and never any duplicates

    Can someone post a picture or two of how the phone and a mod fit together? I need to know how much it might bother my OCD.
