    Well, you can return the phone, but it isn't the phone. I just tried with my X and reminders weren't saved. Tried with my GS4 and reminders weren't saved. Tried with my 2013 N7, no reminder saved. Appears to be a system wide Google Now issue. In the past, I've seen this impacting one Google account but not another. All three devices I mentioned are using the same Google account. If it is like other times this has happened, it will get resolved fairly soon. Until then, Google Keep does seem to be saving my reminders.

    It's almost certainly a Google Now issue. My reminders can be set, but there's no alarm or notification that goes off and I confirmed it was Google Now.

    The fix (and/or confirmation it's Google Now, not the Moto X): Roll back to an earlier version of Google Search. worked for me, although I missed the newer features and just installed a 3rd party app (GTasks).
    Settings -> Apps -> All -> Google Search -> Uninstall updates -> Yes

    My reminders are being saved, but notifications are odd. I get the notification in the status bar, but the notification sound is seriously delayed if it ever rings.

    Hmm interesting. I'm returning the phone for this and other reasons we'll see what the new one will be like .I'll give it another shot with the Moto X. If the reminders are the only issue I can deal with it because I do like the phone for the features that do work. I will keep you all posted

    Well, the notifications that weren't showing up when I tried on the three different devices all showed up and all went off at the time I had set them for. I just tried to set another one using Google Now via voice command and it stuck and went off. All this leads me to believe that this is the same situation I've seen before with Google Now. Try it now and see how it works for you

    I just tried it again. The first one worked and the second one didn't. I think I'll just keep using keep. Its better and whatever reminders that you enter in keep also go to Google Now.

    One good thing about being an early adopter is that if you do get a lemon, the replacement you get will likely be a brand new phone instead of one that's refurbished. Your next one will probably be fine.

    Well, after wasting 2 infuriating hours at the verizon store while the guy tried to "fix" the issue, i just gave up. He reset my phone and the problem persisted. I should have just asked for a new phone but i was so too fed up with hanging around there.
    I downloaded Keep and started using it. However I dont see a way to use voice command (like with Google Now) to set a reminder. That process was basically hands free which is really useful for somebody who's always coming up with my most genius ideas while im driving

    So far the rest of the phone functions are Ok and im sorta getting the hang of it. I will give it another few days and see if there are any more glitches. If not i'll probably just keep it.

One good resource for seeing if others are having the same issue is the Google Now is the Google Now community on G+. Typically if I am having an issue, I check there and someone else is having the same issue at the same time. I'm not saying this is the case here, as I don't know, but it is another piece of the puzzle to consider.
    Thanks, Ill try to G+ community next.

    Stupid question (but i dont feel like digging for it) is there an easy way to contact Google Now for support? Like, a phone # per se?

    Why can't you just call Verizon and have them send you a new one? They'll send one out to you and you just send back the phone you have now once the new one arrives. They'll even pay for the shipping.

    Isnt there a restocking fee? usually $30 i believe? I kinda just wanted a new phone when i went to the store but im pretty sure if i didnt tell them about a specific issue they would charge me the fee to replace the phone.

    Also just browsed the G Plus Google now community seems like other people are having the same issue so I don't think that getting a new phone will resolve it,unfortunately

    I thought you said there were other issues with your phone? If it's defective in any way, there should be no re-stocking fee.

    Not if the device is defective, and you said your phone had other issues.

However I've added specific times with Google now (ie remind me at 5pm) and it seems to save it then the reminder never goes off and there nothing saved in my reminders. Motorola support couldn't figure it out even after connecting to my phone. I'm awaiting a call back, in the meantime going to the Verizon store.

    The Little blue hand icon gets enabled only when you type in a name for the reminder. That being said the reminder notifications are not working from Google Now for me as well. I will test more and let you know.

    The other issue I was having was the screen would go black during phone calls... Turns out it was because I had the screen protector that the phone came with still on and it was blocking a sensor. That issue resolved itself when I took it off. Also the rest flick wasn't working for me every time but it seems to have gotten better . The reminder still don't work I've been using keep. Therefore just decided to keep the phone.

    That's wrist flick, not rest flick
