Quick update for those who have the Bell/Virgin Motorola MOTOLUXE. This is the entry-level Android that was released back in May. Apparently there has been some texting and data issues and “coming soon” is a software update to fix the problem. According to the internal doc we received it states that when the update is pushed through customers will see the following fixes:

– Address instances of unable to send SMS.
– Fix loss of data connectivity.
– Correct Music Store icon disappearing from home screen after installation.

All that is known is that the “coming soon” is actually “Early November”
(Thanks tipster!)

    Rofl, so much for moto-lux’ury’, This garbage Motorola phone should be renamed to the moto-peasant. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Knock knock! Whose there? Hello Moto! Rolf.

    Motoluxe is one laggy device! Watch any review on YouTube, and you’ll see it.

    Why did you even buy it, you lsilly goose?

      to fix your wifi goto settings>wireless & networks>wifi settings>turn on wifi>click the menu button and click scan

      the menu button is the key on the left hand corner beside the home button.

    That update also kill my wi-fi. It connnect to my router with excwllwnt signal, but no wi-fi going througt. Damn it ! I replaced a good BB with that s**t. Never again Motorala.

  • Quinton

    Killed my wifi too. Have no idea how to fix it. Any ideas besides the obvious?

  • Brent

    Don’t upgrade if you haven’t already done so. I called Motorola and the engineers are working on a fix for the bug that has killed Wi-Fi on the Motoluxe phones. No ETA on the fix but I suspect something by early next week.

    • Kim Krueger

      I got the same line from Motorola. I have yet t see a update or a fix.

  • Jess

    called motorola and they said that the new update deleted all data or something along those lines and so you have to make sure your data is enabled to be able to use the wifi.

  • Lesley

    Jess,
    What if you don’t have a data plan? If I activate Data, I’ll get charged for it. And if I do it once, will my Wi-Fi remain functioning afterwards, even after phone goes into sleep mode or is turned off and back on?
