    My sister upgraded her phone and wants to give her old Moto G to her son. She did a factory reset to wipe it and now Google Play will not work. It's constantly crashing. When it crashes it's for two reasons;

    - 10% Random crashing
    - 90% Due to typing the letter B in the search field (no, seriously)

    I did a look-up on Google and it gave lots of advice on clearing the cache for Google Play and Google Play Services, none of that worked. One suggested that I uninstall the updates, but that button is greyed out.

    I did another factory reset and the same issue persists, which is odd because she never had this issue previously.

    General Info
    • The phone is running Android version 5.1
    • I checked and there are no updates to the phone software available
    • I thought I'd try a different keyboard (as most crashes are due to the letter B) but I can't get Play to stay active long enough to download a new one
    Any thoughts? My nephew is eager for his first phone! He's like the only teenager he knows who doesn't have one. ;p
