Moto X on Republic Wireless to have 24-hour launch discount

The 2014 Moto X will go on sale tomorrow on Republic Wireless with a special price for 24 hours, dropping to $349 until December 11. The discount starts at 11am ET/8am PT, and applies both when ordering directly from Republic, as well as when customizing their phone through Moto Maker.

The 2014 Moto X is Motorola's latest almost-pure Android device. It features a 5.2-inch display, a 13MP camera, and 2.5GHz processor. The Republic Wireless version comes with Android 4.4.4 KitKat, though some versions are starting to receive Lollipop.

Be sure to read the Android Central review of the Moto X, and stop by the Moto X forums to get answers to any questions you might have.

  • $50?!?!?! Yup! I'm getting it! Posted with my Nexus 7 2012 or Moto X via the Android Central App
  • Wait, no. Its actually $50 off. Posted with my Nexus 7 2012 or Moto X via the Android Central App
  • The author of this article is either blind or didn't have coffee before posting the article. The RW promo image clearly says "$50 OFF". Posted via the Android Central App
  • For $50 off. Off. Not for $50.
  • Reading the press release It looks like it is $399 with an extra $50 off so $249. Posted via the Android Central App
  • $399 - $50 is $349 not $249 Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oops. Someone failed at math. I sure hope he's not an accountant. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Or he fat fingered it.
  • Nice deal, still with they could support a BYOD model though. On the other hand, FreedomPop's BYOD implementation is a confusing mess, so maybe the custom ROM is a necessary evil for streamlining a seamless(er) wifi preferred service plan.
  • Any word on why Sprint won't carry this phone while Sprint's MVNO will?
  • Looks like this model is riding on Big Red. Posted via the Android Central App
  • if this is true and this phone uses only verizons network...this this phone and plan are an incredible deal. 40 bucks a month for unlimited everything including lte...if i did not have my phone paid for through my company i would jump at the chance to try this.
  • There's a 5 gig cap just so you know.
  • Really? Republic is a Verizon MVNO now? How interesting. I guess they are treating each phone as a separate MVNO?
  • RW is Sprint Only.
  • thats not true. they have a roaming agreement already with verizon. when sprint is not available they roam on verizon. maybe they worked another deal here
  • Wrong. Republic Wireless uses Sprints network and towers. Posted via my Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
  • That's what he said. They use Sprint but when you don't have Sprint coverage you use Verizon's towers. They are a Sprint MVNO that has a roaming agreement with Verizon. Posted from Containment Site 42 via my Sprint GS5
  • They don't have a agreement to use Verizon's towers for off network roaming. Posted via my Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
  • Yeah I'm afraid Republic's website disagrees with you. WiFi: 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, 2.4GHz/5GHz
    Cellular (Sprint): CDMA/EVDO Rev A (850, 1900 MHz), 4G LTE (B12, B25, B26, B41) This phone would obviously work on Sprint. But Sprint no carry.
  • Yeah there was a post on here a month or two ago that showed the Specs of the new Moto X and I was excited because it supported bands 26 and 41 (Sprint Spark) but then Sprint didn't carry the phone which was confusing. It also made me wonder about Republic Wireless sense they exclusively sell Motorola phones and work very closely with Motorola to develop the ROMs. I guess this model is just for RW. Rumor has it that the reason Sprint doesn't carry the 2014 Moto X is because Motorola got pissed about Sprint's iPhone for life plan being $10 less a month than you can get with any android phone.

  • That's disappointing. I love motorola's products, but I don't think they have the market power to shun an entire carrier. I don't see Samsung getting upset over the iPhone deal. I'm considering making the jump over to republic because they have the phone I want and would be less expensive than sprint. The only thing that's holding me up is my works WiFi is stupidly locked down and I'm sure that republics WiFi calls and texts wouldn't make it through. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hopefully they have a promo around tax time when I can afford to switch to RW.
  • Hmm. I have an unused $150 off code from Moto. Will it stack? $200 all told is a smoking deal. Posted via the Android Central App
  • No. They said two promos won't work together. Posted with my Nexus 7 2012 or Moto X via the Android Central App
  • You can always try. Posted via the Android Central App
  • question is will that 150$ off work on that 399 republic wireless price to make it 250 still really good
