    When I turned on my phone yesterday morning it was locked and I did not do it! So now it's asking for a PIN and of course I do not know what that is, because I did not set it. Every 5 goes I have to wait another 30 seconds before I can try again. I tried 0000 and others like that but none works.

    At first I tried giving the SIM a new PIN on another phone, but then the Moto G would unlock the sim but still demand a PIN to open the phone itself. That's when I realised I was in serious trouble.

    I tried a Recover boot and a factory reset, but even though I have charged the battery to 100%, the phone just goes black as soon as I make the choice in the fastboot menu.

    Help?
