Moto X

Motorola Mobility has announced a new sale for the Moto X in the US via the Net10 Wireless provider, allowing its customers to purchase it for just $299 without a contract, along with 50 percent off the price for an optional case.

Normally the phone costs $399 but this $100 price cut is available from now until July 16 and allows for online Net10 customers to use the Moto Maker website to customize the look of the Android smartphone. There are a number of different color choices for the back side of the phone, along with its accents, and either black or white for the front of the phone.

Owners can have a short custom message placed on the back of the Moto X via Moto Maker. Finally, Net10 Wireless has a number of selections for optional cases, including a way for customers to buy one with their favorite college sport team logo.

Do you think this new deal for the Moto X is appealing?

The ultimate question, is it carrier locked? That decides if its a good deal or not in my book.

My first question. Followed by supported bands.

Hiberny says:

I'm going to be pessimistic and say it's probably a Sprint model, like their other phones at good prices.

Moto website says GSM unlocked with a Net10 sim card. I am thinking that means I could put whatever sim I want into it.

Hiberny says:

I would think so. That would make it quite the deal.

Has anyone confirmed this? Because I really want to do that with my AT&T sim.

The phone is old so it's not a good deal to me unless I was pitching this to a friend who need a solid device badly enough.

The phone may not be brand new, but it is still a good phone and the experience is still very good. It does not lag. And there's not that much of a difference in terms of speed with newer phones.

Your Phone Is OLD Sunofbob....
With a poor camera.. poor build quality... a washed out screen and has no idea how to manage a battery.
You need to dump that Nexus 5 in a dumpster and get a Moto X.

All I can say is did you get the new up date. Or are you still rock in the bean and is the port on your moto-x good because my Nexus 5 is doing the charge with no wires. Oh have you used NFC on that moto-x oh am sorry it's not in the hello moto. Its all good to each it own piece

Anonne says:

I use it quite often. The Skip unlocker is useful.

Moto X is better than the Nexus 5. I had a Nexus 5 for 6 months. GPS actually works on the Moto X and it has better features while maintaining a near stock Android experience.

It's a very solid phone still.

Good deal. Love the X.

That is a good deal compared to the latest phones at twice the price or more. Most people don't need the latest thing, and are more concerned with cost. This will fill that need.

I think its a good deal. I'm already on Net10 AT&T but my wife is on Boost with a Moto G and is looking for an upgrade (both phone and network). This could be that upgrade.

JoeyStyles says:

I wish they would put out details about the X2 and the 360 that's what I'm waiting for but $300 unlocked good deal

...

Yes but is this the GSM unlocked or some unlocked ATT variant?

Is it a XT 1053 or XT1058?

Mes3 says:

Ordered one last night. Received email today saying its been put on hold and to call them. Did that and now a review specialist is looking over the order. Good lord.

WATCHOUT! i was chatting with an rep from Motorola about the deal and i asked if i can use it with t mobile and this was the response.
No, because T-Mobile network uses 1700 MHz and 2100 MHz frequencies versus Net10 network uses that uses GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz frequencies.

OHN CALLAHAM can you or anyone else confirm this, is the phone only compatible with Net10?
