    So, ya, Boost Mobile came out with the Moto G Today, however, I am only seeing the 8GB Model on their website. Previously I owned a 8GB iPhone, and storage went so quickly - so I want the 16GB model and can't get that from the Boost Mobile Website.

    Google Play came out with the Moto G Google Play edition but I heard that I can't get that one and make it work with Boost Mobile. So... Where can I get a 16GB model and have it work with Boost Mobile?

    Thanks for the help.

    You might not be able to. Correct me if I'm wrong, Boost is a CDMA/EV-DO carrier operating on the Sprint network. I'm quite sure the non-carrier versions of the Moto G including the Google Play edition are all GSM/HSDPA.

    BTW I was looking at an Oppo phone a couple weeks ago, only 16GB(no SD), not enough. I got 40GB in my current phone, and that's quite full. Music, pictures, documents, videos, etc.

    Weren't they selling the moto g on hsm or some other website? Is only the 8gb model available on boost mobile? That wouldn't be too good. I don't want to just have to settle with 8

    What you are forgetting about its that it comes with two years free of 50 Gig of Google drive. Now 'course after the two years you'll have to pay to maintain that 50 Gig. But it's something to keep in mind.

    External drives via USB OTG is a possibility.

    I have heard a bunch of different people say that about this phone, however even though it may come with that amount of Google Drive space for the first 2 years it still doesn't change the fact that apps can't access data from that service for apps that are running on the phone, hell if I want a place to tuck away files I'll just ship them to my 1 TB external HDD, at least I won't have to worry about losing the space after 2 years lol, what a joke... DO NOT RELY ON GOOGLE SERVICES, BOTTOM LINE... BE SELF SUFFICIENT :p :car:

    As of now Boost Mobile only offers the Moto G 8gb version.

    You could very well be right about apps not accessing the Google drive, I don't know. I've never tried it. All my music is on Google Play (I let the pc sync with the cloud so I have it on pc and cloud). I don't own any videos/movies. I don't know what to tell ya.
