AT&T's Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the Moto X has been suspended

The notice on the AT&T website suggests that the pulling of the update is a temporary one, but if we consider how these things usually pan out, we cannot help but to feel a tad cynical. Here's the notice right from the horse's mouth:
Motorola's David Schuster has been keeping everyone in the loop with regards to software updates for its handsets, which seem to have been plagued with delays and technical hitches. According to reports, grievances with this update range from static speaker interference to issues with APN settings. Before this devolves into a saga, let's hope that AT&T can work with Motorola to get the problem solved in a timely manner.
Moto X updaters, have you noticed any teething issues? Let us know via the comments.
- Display 4.7" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 10 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Dual-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 16 GB
- Battery 2200 mAh(13h talk time)
Yeah lollipop has been a silky smooth rollout. Not. Lollipop continues to have numerous issues plaguing it and this is just another example.

Gotta agree with you on this.. Looking back at how solid and smooth kitkat was, lollipop was really a downgrade performance wise.. Google needs to work on the core system first rather than give emphasis to looks.

I got a Nexus 6 on launch day because I was so excited to try out Lollipop....and yikes...was I disappointed. Not sure if it was the phone itself or what, but Lollipop just felt so broken and unfinished, compared to Kitkat.

Translation of Mxyzptlk's post: "I have no life and spend all day and night trolling Motorola, Android, and BlackBerry".

I purchased my Moto X 2013 directly from Motorola, I did install Lollipop when it was available a couple of weeks ago. As soon as I completed the update my phone did not receive any signal from my carrier (T-Mo). It would would perfectly at home via the wi-fi, but the signal strength bar always had an explanation point in front of the bars? I was on the phone with a T-mo support tech and he could not fix the problem. I also visited 3 T-mo stores to perhaps find someone more knowledgeable, nope. I contacted Motorola directly and they could not help me. Since the phone was over a year old I would be on my own. Kit-Kat is much better, I wish I would never had installed the Lolli-pop update...it ruined my phone. So I thought, until I posted my issue on Android Central and a couple of days later someone wrote the remedy and I was grateful however, Lolli-Pop was no improvement, it's buggy, it lags, programs open when I intended to open another, it does not run smoothly at all and it makes my phone not worth using. I used to like the Moto X, it's so frustrating to use now that I have stopped using it . I'm not able to upload the link but if you're interested go to Android Central and insert "Moto X 2013 Major problems after Lolli-pop update". You may get your phone working again, but you won't like it.

I tested this software for Motorola and we told them its too buggy for mass release. They never gave us feedback left us hanging with no replys go our posts for weeks at a time. They just didn't care and released this update anyway. Left a bitter-sweet taste in my mouth. Disappointed in Motorola for this one.

I updated my moto x on Sunday, as soon as it came out. I immediately noticed that about half of my contacts had no names associated with them... Text conversation with my mom just went back to her phone number. Then group and media messages do not work at all... I can neither sends nor receive either. Very inconvenient since I am with my youth group this week and the other leaders have been swapping pics of the students in action.
