Does anyone know how to fix it? Apparently there is no stock gallery apk on this phone, only one for vzw with link to their cloud backup services which are a paid option. Conveniently for vzw the picasa/google+ sync is broken.

I would like to know how to fix this too. Use Google+ as a workaround to get at your web albums.

You can't download from there.what you have to do is dl the linked https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B7n...WwtQWZWek10M0Uapk, move to /system/app, change permissions to rw-r-r and then reboot.

Success!

Rooted, copied the stock ICS gallery apk to system/app, renamed Motgallery2.apk to Motgallery2.apk.old, renamed stock OCS gallery to Motgallery2.apk, and VOILA. Works like a charm.

Root method from XDA

It's Not Broken - It's excluded
This is the link from the moto site with instructions on how to view online albums.. It is set that way intentionally which is quite annoying.

Yes, definitely thanks for this. It worked great for me as well. The only additional thing I did (not sure if I had to, but just to be safe) I also changed the file ownership to root:root. After copying the ownership was something like system:sdcard_rw. So since the ownership on the original file was root:root I figured not to take any chances and change the renamed file ownership to the same thing.

What a thing for Verizon to do. I swear, if they had any serious competition they couldn't pull crap like this.
