Moto G2 -> Settings -> Data Usage -> "Unfortunately, settings has stopped."

Several days ago, I was in a low signal area when the problem started. Simply tapping on Settings -> Data Usage results in an abnormal termination message: "Unfortunately, Settings has stopped."


And I haven't been able to access the "Data Usage" Settings menu since then, either from the main dropdown menu or from the Settings app.


The abnormal termination message sometimes appears immediately after tapping "Data Usage". Sometimes the screen is painted white with the title bar "Data Usage", and then the abnormal termination. Sometimes the Data Usage menu begins to be partially painted before the abnormal termination message. But there is never any info shown about data use, and the slide switch to be able to turn off network data is never visible. The bottom line is that the "Data Usage" Settings menu does not work. Other than that, the phone works fine.


The following information could be of help to identify the cause of the bug/issue:


  • Model: MOTO G (2nd Generation, global 3G type)
  • Hardware Version: p4
  • Android Version: 6.0
  • Build number: MPBS24.65-34-4
  • Settings App Version: 6.0-6


These are the solutions that have been tried up to now:


  • Booted the phone. Several times. Fails anyway.
  • Booted the phone in safe mode, fails in safe mode as well.
  • Cleared the Settings app data. Fails anyway.
  • Tried to clear the Settings app cache (doesn't seem to actually clear anything). Fails anyway.
  • Deleted APN configuration. Fails with no APN configured.
  • Reconfigured APN data. Fails again after reconfiguration.
  • Reported the issue to Google. Was told that they cannot reproduce the issue in nexus/pixel devices, and that I should contact the OEM.


I have yet to try a factory reset, but would like to avoid going to all the trouble. Does anyone else have the same issue? Anyone out there have a solution?


Best regards
