    What the...? The Stylus was released a full two weeks prior to the G8 Power. Why did you get the January security patches when I just got updated to November a couple of weeks ago???

    I guess the G in Moto G stands for Grrrrrrrrr!

    If Verizon is involved, <insert delay of unknown duration here>, ime

    I have the unlocked G Stylus and it's still on the November patch.
    On a completely unrelated note, one of my very few complaints about this phone appears to have not been a phone issue. I used to "USB tether" my computers with my OnePlus 6T to go online, but that didn't work with this phone. (My computers run Linux Mint 18.3.) I just tried out a live USB of Mint 20.1 today and USB tethering worked! I will likely upgrade this weekend. (Mint 18 is EOL in a couple of months anyway.)

    Not here to claim, but to add a +1 for FolderSync. It solved a problem I had: how to automatically sync hidden folders (with names starting with "." or having a file named ".nomedia" inside) with OneDrive. FolderSync can do its magic between any two pairs of folders wherever they are in the phone or in the cloud. But I haven't added any cloud account to FolderSync. Instead, I use it to backup files from the hidden folder (i.e. WhatsApp's Statuses or Sent pictures folders) to another non-hidden folder in the phone's internal drive, and from them Samsung's Gallery will grab them and sync them to OneDrive.

    I'm on Verizon, but I'm assuming, since I am PayG with an unlocked phone, that Moto is actually providing the updates.

    I just lost my stylus pen. I have no idea when I used it yesterday or where it could be. Amazon has them & will deliver today for purchases $35 or higher, so I ordered 2 styluses (or is it styli?) & a pack of screen protectors.

    I'll probably find my original stylus after the replacements are delivered.

    Well it looks like it is somewhere at the house - at least that narrows it down.

    Amazingly I found the stylus - now I'm trying to cancel my Amazon order.

    Having the date & time when it was pulled out really helped. It was on the floor in front of the couch I was sitting on. If it fell somewhere in the sides of the couch it wouldn't be found until we gave the couch away years from now & someone was doing a deep clean.

    No, fortunately for me since we're watching our daughter's 2 dogs & it was in the family room where they are staying.[​IMG]
