    So i was at a party sat night with friends and my VZW Moto X (16GB) was completely wiped. It was in my pocket the whole time and i have no clue what may have happened.

    Could this be a software glitch? Anyone else have or hear of this happen?

    I'm thinking of going back to VZW and asking them to replace it...

    Sounds like a glitch. Or maybe your phone was setup to allow remote factory wipe and someone did it? It would have to be someone you know since you need your device to set it up.

    Probably the former to be honest

    Do you have a lock code set? If so look at:
    Settings
    Security
    Device administrators
    Local Wipe Policy.

    Is it set?

    It maybe be **** dialing in your pocket and trying enough times to unlock, that it wiped the phone.

    I didn't even know it had this by default. I don't lock my phone, but good to know that if I do start locking it that this feature is there. I wish it let you change settings on it though, amount of unlock attempts and maybe a warning a few attempts before completely wiping it.

    WOW! I wasn't aware this was set by default either. I'm still not sure that this was it because I've never had the problem before. Either way, it looks like this is getting disabled and corporate sync will be going through Touchdown moving forward...

    Thanks!

    Same here. I just deactivated all of the remote wipe capabilities.
