Default Moto G Phone app battery drain

A few days ago I noticed that the Phone app kept running in the background and took its toll on the battery. Funny thing is even if I enable Airplane mode it keeps doing it. But when I connect the charger the app stoppes running. :S
I even recieved the new OTA update which should have a new Phone app, but the issue remains.
Does anyone have any idea what could be the cause of this?

Here's a screenshot of the app itself, showing that it keeps the phone awake.

I have the same issue here 27% used battery by "Phone"

- UK Moto G with latest 4.4.2 (No Root, 100% stock).
- Apps disabled: Calendar, Google Play Books, Messaging, Motorola Assists.
- Using Google Now Launcher.
- Vodafone (just saying because it says: Vodafone SIM under battery info.


No idea how to stop it...tried a lot of things...(reboot, stop many apps, everything) and still keeps increasing the wake time counter.
Devices:
Nexus 5 (Stock + Franco Kernel) - Galaxy Nexus (CM11 + A.S.K.P. Kernel) - Nexus 7 2012 (Stock); Galaxy S GT-i9000 (CM11 - zRAM OFF); Galaxy Y Pro B5510L (Stock).
Previous:
Nexus 4 16GB; Galaxy S3 GT-i9300.

I also noticed that the MOTO G wasn't receiving SMS! It had never received an SMS. (Anyway the Phone is new...1 week usage).

I fixed both things (the Phone wake lock and the SMS reception) doing many of the following (random picked) steps:
- Re-enable: Messaging app, Motorola Assist app.
- Change default SMS APP from Hangouts to Messaging.
- Deleted all SMS threads (Because the outgoing SMS were working fine). .
- Rebooted the Phone.
Result: I've received all my pending SMSs (most of them from the carrier).

Now i switched back to Hangouts and it's still working.
And the Phone app finally stopped. (Wake up counter stopped).
