Activation gives the phone a phone number. I assume it also starts the clock on the verizon unlocking policy. After 6 months the phone can be used on any verizon plan. And after 12 months you can request an unlock code and use it on any carrier that has a CDMA network. ie sprint or virtual carriers like boost, page plus, tracfone, net10 or straight talk. The unlocking policy currently says nothing about the phone being used for calls, just ''activated'' for 6 and 12 months. For me I probably will just use verizon prepaid service since the cost is competitive currently and it is access to the verizon network I'm after. I've not tested it, but supposedly the phone can be used to make 911 calls without a current plan in place so it could be a handy item for emergencies. Again with the good rural coverage.
The battery does not pop out for quick swaps but it is a simple matter to replace it with a screwdriver.
As many have said, the moto g is about as sturdy as a smart phone can be. People have even soaked them in water for half an hour with no serious damage! Try that with your $800 flagship phone.
For people who want to explore the moto g to greater degrees I've read that there is an online service that will unlock the bootloader for $25. If you don't know what that is, never mind.
According to the page plus community the same phone for Boost mobile (sprint) has less locking of its bootloader. Not an expert so I'll stop there.
So many great reasons to own the moto g. Enjoy.

I love how it fits my hands, which are small, and it still has a big screen - the phone is thin, nicely curved. I love the clarity of the screen. I love that it has as much RAM and internal storage as much more expensive phones, and comes with current version Android instead of earlier versions like other low-end phones. I love how fast it is. I like that it has Gorilla Glass, and that it is still very responsive to my touch. I like that I can turn it sideways to use a bigger on-screen keyboard for inputting text to to dial or message or fill online forms. It charges quickly and the battery is a lot better than the battery was on my previous non-smartphone LG slider, so I don't mind that it doesn't have a replaceable battery. I always charge phone and tablet every night anyhow, but it doesn't really always need it if I haven't played a lot of games or spent a lot of time online or made a lot of calls that day. Lasts long enough for my needs!
I was going to return it because it could not be activated on PagePlus because of Verizon's rules for its service resellers, but I really couldn't find another phone anywhere as nice for the price that would work with PagePlus (which is now owned by TracPhone anyhow, no longer independent), so I decided to go direct to Verizon prepaid instead. Which is OK - they now have a prepaid plan with unlimited text & messaging where you get 1 Gb of data/month instead of 500 Mb if you use autopay - for $45, same as most other companies' prepaid programs. I use autopay anyhow so I don't forget to pay on time - they let you set up the payment date of choice. And I use it with wifi for data whenever I can, including at home, so that means lots of free streaming stuff. It's not a 4G phone, but it still seems to keep up with my needs.
I do miss the ability to store stuff on a micro-SD card, but it has enough internal storage to keep lots of apps and also some pix, if you offload extra photos & videos to your pc or tablet regularly with either bluetooth or micro-USB. Also - I do not have the best hearing, but don't have a hearing aid. Call quality is good, not fabulous, but is loud enough and clear enough for me, and on speaker, sounds fine. I do have a problem with cheek-dialing (or cheek-hangup), however, but that's not the phone's fault!
I'm glad I kept it. All manufacturers should take note of this phone when they think about budget phones, and upgrade their products. I only hope they find a way to include a micro-SD card next go-round, but it is still worth owning.
All in all, I give this five stars because this phone is good to really good but not great in so many areas, but paired with the network and the price, it is a perfect fit for this non-power user who still demands what may now be considered basic levels of smart phone performance. I'd highly recommend this to non-status conscious users who just want a functional good deal.
