So hmm i finally decided to use moto g as my main phone.
Got the nano --> microsim adaptor from a local store.
Inserted the sim. Sim doesnt get detected. Tried removing the sim. STUCK!. I think i broke the simreader pins without even actually using a phone.

I just contacted the motorola people.Too bad my phone is bought from usa and im in india till July. Anyone here has a guide on how to change the sim slot?!? I managed to remove the damn adaptor but i broke the pins so i guess i m screwed.

Same here. I'm going to buy a replacement for the SIM tray off ebay, and have it replaced (guys in my local store said it would cost $13, but another store asked for $20, so the prices may vary). I'm in Poland.

Hi, i have the issue with my moto g. I fix the problem manually using a little piece of metal to make sure that the pin I broke touch the Sim. But that's was my case, I recommend you to go in a technical service, they can put a new sim reader and this cost about 20$.

Motorola already realized that this is a serious problem, because in my Moto G 4G with LTE User Guide they clearly mention on 4th page: "Caution: Make sure you use the correct sized SIM card, and donít use adapters with it."
