Moto X back

We hope you were able to snag a promo code for Motorola's Try Then Buy promotion that allows you to create a custom Moto X and try it out for two weeks before you buy for just one cent, as the manufacturer's website lists that all codes have been given out. If you're still interested in getting a Moto X however, we have good news, as Motorola has begun offering the 64 GB version of the handset in the U.S.

The 64 GB version will set you back $449, which is $100 more than what the 16 gig variant costs, and will be available on AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Republic Wireless. Oddly enough, Verizon wasn't listed as one of the carriers that will be getting this model.

Other than the increase in storage, the device features identical hardware specs as the 16 GB variant of the Moto X. Would you be interested in picking up the 64 gig model?

Motorola's 'Try Then Buy' promotion runs out, 64 GB Moto X now available

Of course I would. But I tire of the astronomical prices for 48gb of extra storage. I get why they do it but I don't have to like it.

Interesting. Unfortunately I don't know how that is going to be a viable plan in the future. Selling it at cost means that they have to make their money somewhere and I don't see the company like that surviving if they don't have a viable means of income.

That's because they needed to get rid of extra stock laying around collecting dust. Not surprising it didn't last long.

I guess people don't get tired of recycling that line over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over

Kinda tired of hearing though

I have had the 32 GB Moto X since Thanksgiving of 2013 & I just love how the phone evolved since it was brought out. I can say if I decide to replace it, that will be the 64 GB model unless they come out with a better one or Google's project phone comes out.

Ha, already have two.

Would have to buy a backup to the backup.

Five phones total, man....whose counting. ;-)

Thought it would sell out quick. I made a few designs on Saturday. Picked my favorite one yesterday and ordered right at 9 pm.

That's what I did. I setup an account, made my phone. Waited for the code which took only a min. Went back into my cart, applied the code and checked out. Took me from the time of getting code to confirmation 3 mins.

Well i might get it or might not. Filled out and completed but no confirmation at checkout. But now my codes, yes they sent me multiples, are invalid. :( so if it shows up great if not...eh

Thats what mine said right after i completed the checkout. I checked the other codes they sent me us the new one and they all said not applied after this. So does that mean my original code was applied? Idk

They sold out I was told. I'm in the same boat. Lots of people have valid codes they can't use.

Can't say I'm not surprised.

Would have loved a 64 GB at launch! Too many other new phones I would buy instead today.

Sent from my Moto X!

I like the X for a lot of different reasons, and I suppose it is technically correct that it is still a flagship phone, but yeah, if I am buying a phone right now, this is close to the last place I would look right now. I would have to wait for the X+1 or choose from the other 10 that came out in the last 2-3 months.

Still thought the X was a wonderful device that got ridiculed for not having MOAR SPECS!!

Just picked up a near-mint used Moto X with original packaging for $250 for the sole reason of tiding me over until the X+1 makes its debut. I've been getting really sick of Verizon's antics and my Galaxy S3 is on its last leg.

Not to nitpick but $449 is the Republic Wireless price only. Every other carrier the off contract version will set you back $499.

i'm sure some will come back after the 2 week period, so i'm curious to know what they'll do with them since, i believe, they can't resale them as "new" anymore.

Not much interested in the 64GB model. The 16GB model I have has 8GB free and I have pretty much everything I need.

I'll replace it in a years time anyway. I typically outgrow the hardware specs in a year as software apps get more demanding overtime.

Here’s your unique promo code: TESTDRIVE-FEKD-7ODB-MZS4-KQU5
Expiration: 11:59pm ET, June 10, 2014

I would have purchased the 64GB version had it been available when I bought my 32GB. I hate staggered releases like this. First we waited for Moto Maker on all carriers, then for wood backs, now they come out with 64GB.

FYI. I know two people who used someone else's codes early this morning and got calls from Motorola informing them that their orders have been voided.

I once thought so, but don't really need the extra storage. 16 Gig is enough for the apps I actually use. As for music, I stream Grooveshark. As for movies, I download, watch, and delete. Maybe endless videos of the new grand daughter will change my mind?

I just used my code about an hour ago and it worked! The in-stock date said June 15, and the checkout said I would have until June 28 to pay, but then (without asking) I got an email from Motorola assuring me that the full amount won't be due until 14 days after I receive my phone.

Strangely, I also received 2 codes from them, so I tried to create a 2nd one for my wife to try, and the code didn't work. I chatted with a customer support rep, gave her the code, and she's going to have her team review it and get back to me, so I might get 2 phones out of the deal.

My takeaways from this are: (1) if you have a code and it's not working, try it again, then contact customer support to see what they can do, and (2) so far I'm impressed with the efficiency of Motorola support. We'll see how long it takes for them to get back to me.

Good luck!

I did this and have one being made after failed attempts. I too have extra codes. However under motos faq they state one per household.
