After debuting on AT&T, then making its way to Verizon, the Moto X has reached the Now Network. Sprint's Moto X is on sale, and you can get a solid deal if you're coming over from a rival carrier. After the contract subsidy and a $100 port-in credit, you only have to pay $99 for the device. Not your situation? Sorry, that'll be $199.

The Moto X is the first device from Motorola that is fully backed by Google. It runs atop the Motorola X8 computing platform, which enables those neat always-on features. The Moto X on Sprint does support LTE, but Sprint's LTE footprint is still tiny.

Moto Maker is still exclusive to AT&T devices, so you can choose between the black or white device. Hey, at least you're not on T-Mobile where the Moto X may never be sold in stores.

    I'd buy it if it wasn't for Sprints slowest network.

    Ill keep my N4 on Tmobile for now.

      True story. Just came from sprint. Don't regret paying twice as much for service I can actually use at Verizon.

      I'm glad you already started a thread about this. I can't warn people enough about how Sprint has gone so far downhill. As an eleven year Sprint customer I can't wait to run away from them to AT&T or Verizon. I held out hopes that LTE would save my now miserable experience with them but honestly I'm just even more let down by Sprint now more than ever. I was happy with them a couple years back with my EVO 4G(WiMAX). A year ago they did their Network Vision upgrades and their 3G EVDO was pulling 1Mbps connections; it was awesome. But their 3G network has gone downhill and now only provides 200-400 Kbps throughout Seattle. Whenever I find a pocket of LTE it ranges from 800 Kbps to 4.0 Mbps. Absolutely terrible LTE speeds. Right now I'm in Waikiki on vacation and I have 6 of 6 bars on 3G, but their data network is completely unusable. I can't even run a Speed test; it does nothing. Trying to use Google Voice returns nothing but texts that won't send out.

      The straw that broken my camels back was that I called them last week complaining about dropped calls at my house which is in a 1 bar LTE area, I requested a Airrave for free like they had offered me months before when I didn't have home internet, but they refused and said now it would be $130 for one. So essentially I pay them approx $140 a month for a family plan with two phones on it which provides unreliable voice calls and unusable data speeds. I had to go buy home internet because I get such unreliable data speeds and would like to be able to use the free Airrave. So essentially I'm paying them for voice and data which don't work and I get to pay for an internet connection and pay for an Airrave to provide myself with a better voice experience. How about instead of that I just pay Verizon for a large nationwide LTE network...... Sprint you sell the idea of unlimited data but your network is garbage. Good riddens!

      Tl;Dr... I'm crying about paying for garbage Sprint service and I'm switching to Verizon.

      I get good data speeds on Sprint. Maybe you should move somewhere decent.
