Well, that’s awkward. According to a report by Droid Life, AT&T stores are being asked to return early Nexus 6 stock because of a bug that causes random reboots and renders the device inoperable without a forced restart.

Motorola accepted blame for the issue earlier today, saying it delivered a small number of Nexus 6 devices to AT&T customers with faulty software. It has since corrected the issue, and all phones currently shipping should be okay – the company will provide replacements for affected users.

If you’re an AT&T customer who’s experienced issues with your shiny new Nexus 6, it’s definitely worth looking into. We’ve reached out to Motorola for more information on the recall process and will update if we hear back.
