    I just got a moto g to use as a media device. I don't intend to put a sim card in it, I just use it on WiFi. My problem is that there's a message on the lock screen, and an icon in the status bar, reminding me that there's "no sim card - emergency calls only". Is it possible to get rid of these?

    It's just an icon on the status bar, there's no notification.

    I put a TMOBILE sim that is not activated and then turned off Mobile data.

    There are two things I see now which I would like to get rid of

    1. Signnal bar of network: I don't care about this so much
    2. Voice mail notification: If you force stop the phone app, it gets rid of the message. Not sure if there are performance consequences by doing this.
    (Note, if you restart the phone, the voicemail icon re appears.)

    How good does the moto g work as a media device? Are there any annoyances?
