If you've been anxiously waiting for the chance to order up a Verizon Moto X, now is the time! The Moto X order page just went live on Verizon's website. If you want one as soon as possible, you'll have to buy online – Verizon won't have the device in stores for a few weeks.

2013-08-29 00_58_55-Moto X by Motorola

The Verizon Moto X is only available in black and white at this time. Also, there is only a 16GB storage option. Moto Maker is coming later, which is an AT&T exclusive right now. Oddly, the off-contract price is $20 higher on Verizon than it is on AT&T or from Motorola itself ($600). Also, in case you forgot, Verizon is stressing this phone was made in the USA.

This might be your only chance to buy a phone from Verizon that has only a single tasteful logo on it. So, I would strongly consider this if I was on Verizon. If you take the plunge, enter VERIZON30 as the promo code. That will take 30% off the price, making your total for the device $139.99. That's a certifiable good deal.

    does the coupon code work on the full retail option? if so, it might be worth it.

    • Booyabobby

      Only for 2yr activations

    • mike dunham

      I am do for an upgrade so I went and looked for fun. The funny thing is every time I select the full retail amount the website always places the 2yr $199.99 option in my cart and wants me to change my unlimited data plan. Verizon sucks.

      • John

        chat with them. Its sounds complicated but you can do it off contract. Chat with them and they will explain. Sorry at work.

        • mike dunham

          It is really moot at this point, I am just waiting for December to roll around so I can leave VZW behind. I am waiting to see what the next nexus will be and either choose that or the Moto X.

      • esper256

        Same problem here. I'm waiting for the "Developer Edition" sold directly by Motorola. There's supposed to be a Verizon version in the works.

        Not only will we not have to deal with being forced off of unlimited plan, but if it is sold directly from Motorola, they will probably control the signing keys for the firmware.

      • Jr

        I am not going to get rid of my unlimited plan either. I went in and they said from the amount of data I used (100-120GB/wk) they don't have a plan for that. LOL who would. but I can add a extra line for $10, upgrade and add it to my unlimited plan.

        • Mike

          100-120gb/wk?? What a goon.

    this might be a dumb question, but can we use the non-contract AT&T version of Moto X with another carrier's SIM card, be that inside or outside the US?

    • di

      No. I've bought off-contract att phones in the past and all that means is you are not required to sign a two year contract but the phone is still locked with att. Off-contract is not unlocked. You can ask att to unlock it and depending on the rep you get you might be lucky. If you have the money to buy off-contract then just buy unlocked straight from Motorola.

    • train234

      buy it from motorola instead of ATT that way its unlocked and can be used from any carrier. buying from ATT off contract is suicide.

  • Sophie Hartmann

    Thank you so much for the wonderful information.This is really important for me.I am searching this kind of information from a long time and finally got it.

    That screen shot showing a $100 monthly charge (before taxes) reminds me how much I love T-Mobile prepaid.

    • Idon’t Know

      Do you also love not getting a signal and slow speeds?

      • i am sam

        Do I love having LTE everywhere. Yes. Why don't you look at coverage before you open your ignorant mouth regarding tmobile. Verizon fanboys you pay so much money I just switched from Verizon and have LTE in more places with T-Mobile

        • Idon’t Know

          I've had every carrier and I travel extensively with both personal and work phones. Whereas you are just some kid with a T-Mobile phone because its cheap. Also an thug that would never talk to me like that in person. Run along now.

        • Kevin

          At least where I live we don't have LTE yet AND everything more than 15 miles away from the center of our city is 2G. Go a couple of hours northeast and it's 90% 2G. So while YOUR experiences are great, those who live or travel through less-populated areas find T-mo to be basically useless.

    • Jason

      No mater how you look at it, your paying the same price or more. I pay $162 a month out the door for 2 GS3's on Verizon with 4gb of shared data. To switch to Tmobiles prepaid plan, It would be about $120 a month before taxes so probably $140 a month out the door. So I save $20 a month but then I have to buy 2 phones at full price.......Costs more to be on Tmobile in my situation.

  • Dfigs23

    Just bought a black Moto X with the coupon! You saved me $60. Thank You!

  • gm

    Is promo code only available to new customers? I did not see any place to enter when upgrading my phone.

    • RS

      me either. anyone else having this problem? or can anyone tell us where to enter the promo code?

  • br_hermon

    Man... that's a crazy good deal. Especially for a new phone. VERY tempting.

    • Idon’t Know

      How is that a "crazy" good deal. On a mid level phone with a mediocre screen whose key features can be installed on any recent Android phone.

      • br_hermon

        Your name says it all my friend, you don't know...

  • Cody Revels

    If I call and order can I use the Promo Code?
