Android 4.4.3 Update lets user Hide network name in status bar on Moto G

The Moto X, Moto G, as well as Moto E are the most budget-friendly devices made by Motorola with amazing hardware specs, top design, and quality of construction, and they run the stock Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Moto G has done exceptionally well, and is followed by Moto E, having received positive feedback from people around the world. There is however an annoying problem with the user interface of the version for international users of Moto G. The relevant users will have observed that the name of the network or logo of the carrier is displayed constantly on the left-hand right side on Moto G. Displaying network name on the status bar is strange and ineffective since the space is intended to display icons for notifications.

If the fact that your carrier’s names could be Vodafone P or something longer it could quickly take over all of the status bars, consequently, there is no space for the notifications. We are of the opinion that certain regions require the name of the network on the screen, this may not be the best method to go about it. Up until now the need for root access was a requirement and you can then use the Xposed module in the event that you want to turn off the visibility of the name of the carrier.

It’s good news, Motorola has started rolling out the most recent version of ‘ Android 4.4.3‘ KitKat to Moto phones that was launched through Google to Nexus devices. The update was pushed out to Moto G as well as Moto E owners who purchased it on the internet in the U.S., and for Moto T-Mobile users with X. Alongside the upgraded dialer that has a brand new interface and enhancements, as well as stability and security improvements The update also includes the option for users to display or hide the name of the network in the notification bar.

To block the name of the network to hide the network name on Moto G, Moto E, as well as Moto X in the USor UK Open the phone’s Settings > Network settings for mobile phones. Simply uncheck the box “Show mobile network” then you’re finished. A simple and fast method!
