[Fix coming] Motorola Moto G7 'LTE not working' issue after Android 10 update on Verizon & Sprint being looked into

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on July 23, 2020) follows:

The Motorola Moto G7 was one of the best affordable phones of 2019 in western markets. It launched with Android 9 out-of-the-box and has since picked up the Android 10 update. Motorola’s software is usually stable with not many bugs to be found.

However, bugs and issues manage to sneak in at some point in time. Mostly, bugs are introduced via software updates and it appears to be the case with the Moto G7.

Users are now reporting that LTE is not working after installing the Android 10 update. More specifically, users on the Verizon and Sprint networks are facing the problem. Thus, users are stuck with slow 3G internet speeds.

Further, there does not appear to be a workaround to get LTE working on the device. A number of users (1, 2, 3, 4) have taken to the company’s community forums to express their concern over the LTE issue on the Moto G7.
