After months of AT&T exclusivity, Motorola has officially expanded the Moto Maker handset customization service for the Moto X smartphone to Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and Sprint customers.
Customers on all three carriers looking to purchase the Moto X through the Moto Maker service will be able to do so and as a bonus, Verizon and Sprint have cut the Moto X pricing by $100 on a new 2-year agreement, with the phone now available through Moto Maker and other sales channels for $99.99. T-Mobile will price the phone for $499.99 through the service on its Simple Choice plans, as it does not carry the phone through its retail stores or third-party dealers.
As previously reported this past Summer when first launched, the Moto Maker design service allows customers to customize the bodyshell of the phone with up to 2,200 unique combinations of materials and finishes as well as further customization through the addition of custom engraving, custom wallpapers, icons, home screen, and even a custom catchphrase for the Touchless Control hands-free functionality, ensuring that every phone ordered through the design service will be a personalized reflection of each owner. All Moto X smartphones customized through Moto Maker are assembled and shipped from Motorola’s dedicated factory in Fort Worth TX, ensuring quick delivery times.
Customization of optional accessories such as earbuds and cases is also included in the service. Motorola has also confirmed that the Moto X will be updated to Android KitKat in the coming weeks. In addition, Motorola has confirmed that custom engraving is now available after being delayed at launch through a teaser on its social media accounts and posted below.
