If you’re on a carrier like Verizon, Sprint or AT&T, then you don’t want to buy a Moto X through your carrier. Why? Simply because there’s no Moto Maker. However, it looks like that’s about to change with Sprint. It appears that they are going to be selling the Moto Maker codes in-store so you can customize your own Moto X on Motorola’s website. AT&T has been doing this since launch, and as far as I know Verizon isn’t doing it yet. According to the leak sent to Android Police, it looks like Sprint will be selling Moto Maker codes in-store as soon as tomorrow, March 14th.
From what we are being told, the setup in Sprint stores is going to be much like how AT&T was setup when they launched the Moto X last summer. Remember they had the exclusive on Moto Maker for a few months. Customers will receive the code through their email and go online to customize their phone. The device will then be shipped to the store instead of the customer. So it appears that you’ll have to visit the Sprint store twice to get your customized Moto X. Which if you live close to a Sprint store, it’s not that bad of a deal. Additionally, the codes are only available with a 2-year contract. As Sprint’s Easy Pay program isn’t compatible at this time. It’s supposedly due to legal reasons. You also can’t sign up for insurance with your customized Moto X.
So there’s a few caveats here that may keep people from buying a customized Moto X, especially with the Moto X being about 6 months old now. But the landing page is now live on Sprint’s website here. And we should learn more tomorrow when it goes live, as long as this leak is correct. How many of our readers on Sprint are planning on grabbing a customized Moto X?
