    So I got a Moto G 2nd gen US model for my mom and I'm setting it up for her. There is no SIM card yet. Is that why it's stuck on 4.4.4?

    I thought it was out for everyone on a 2nd gen. It's all over reddit. Any reason why I wouldn't have gotten it?

    The carrier supplies the SIM. Evidently you didn't buy it from the carrier.

    (The carrier also updates it - if it's not registered on the carrier, it won't get an update.)

    For some reason I thought if it was an unlocked version it would get an OTA update even without a carrier setup.

    Yes it would get an update. Motorola is updating the phones in batches. So, when it is time for your batch, every phone in your batch will receive the update. BTW Motorola is still fixing some bugs, I personally wouldn't want a buggy version of the 5.0 update.

    I am in the same situation. My SIM free as of now (because like you, it's going to my mother in law) phone is still on 4.4.4. I did put my AT&T sim in from my phone and let it sit and still no update.

    So I'm going on the assumption, that since this is not a carrier branded phone, that the update will come directly from Motorola, and will not need a SIM to receive the OTA. I also plugged it into my laptop and using the Motorol Device Manager software, said it had no update available now.

    And receiving the OTA is of course assuming the phone is running the stock recovery and ROM.
