Are you a Republic Wireless subscriber? No? Me neither! But the carrier of the people is getting access to MotoMaker starting tomorrow, April 1st, and if you're one of the first 2000 to buy, you'll get a free upgrade to a real-wood-with-fake-finish back. Exciting stuff! In order to qualify for the free upgrade, you'll need to register at this URL tomorrow beginning at 11AM EST. The first 2000 to register will receive the free upgrade through a promo code that will be sent to you by Motorola. Given Republic Wireless' popularity, if you really want that free upgrade, I'm pretty sure you won't have much of a problem getting it.

The one downside, perhaps, is that MotoMaker Moto X's on Republic will actually cost more than the carrier's standard black / white X's should you choose to buy off contract. The 16GB customized model will start at $349.99, rather than the $299 Republic sells the standard version for. Granted, this is till $50 less than what you'd pay for the standard unlocked Moto X, but unless you really want that wood back / a customized color scheme, the standard edition is clearly the better deal. The 32GB version will be available for order as well, presumably for $399, though Republic didn't specify in its blog post.

Republic also is sure to mention that since you'll be buying the device direct from Motorola, you will have to go through Moto for any support, warranty claims, or returns.

Once again, the Republic Moto X with MotoMaker will go live tomorrow at 11AM EST.
