    • Albert Oct 16, 2016, 5:25 pm

      Disable hearing aid option from your phone to fix this problem.

      Go to contacts –> setting –> calling account –>disable it

      • Moin Nov 8, 2016, 6:21 am

        Thanks this work, I wish Moto saves us the pain and time, by setting this automatically and fixing as a patch

      • hangang Nov 9, 2016, 7:08 am

        Thank you Albert for this. it’s been very annoying, i cant hear a thing on standard setup. as this option is not accessible from the main setting menu.
        to help others, if you have moto e3 power low in call volume. to access setting option on the phone dialer (three dots on the top right corner) > setting > calling accounts > check off hearing aids and noise reduction if you had to.

        • hari Nov 19, 2016, 2:37 pm

          In settings, i am unable to find calling accounts. kindly advise how to do this.

    • Chintamani Feb 7, 2017, 6:00 am

      The noise reduction option is in Select Dialer (From where you make a call but inputting number) -> Click 3 dots on top right corner -> Settings -> Calling Accounts -> Uncheck Noise Reductions. Thats it.

      Please note the option is not in contacts…

  • Pratyush Oct 26, 2016, 2:42 am

    Phone is good. From last 1 month I am using it.. But the only problem in this phone is that you can not select both SIM on 3g mode I.e. you can only change SIM 1 settings to 2g,3g,LTE and SIM2 is by default 2g, you can not even change it to 3g as mentioned in features it is SIM2 is also 3G but that’s not truth.

    • gr8gizmoguru Oct 27, 2016, 7:13 am

      Both Sim slots support 3G/ 4G. I have used both sim slots with both 3g and4g connx. Only thing is that you have to chose which sim slot you will use for Data services, then the other Sim slot stops data. So you CANT use both sim slots for data connection SAME time.
