MotoMaker open for business, allows you to buy straight from the site

One of the most exciting features of the Moto X smartphone is the customization. With over 500 different permutations possible, it’s awesome to see what kind of Moto X you can make for yourself. And while MotoMaker has been working for a while, allowing you to build your designs, you still needed to head to an AT&T store to get a card to allow you to purchase the device. No longer!

From now on, MotoMaker will allow you to purchase your designs straight from the site! This will allow you to customize the front, back, accents, wallpaper, boot screen, and more. It’ll also allow you to sign into your Google account so it ships already synced, buy a color coded USB cable (black or white), and add accessories like cases and headphones. It’s all yours to make.

When checking out, you can choose to either redeem an AT&T card to choose a carrier. The only carrier is currently AT&T, but more carriers will be available eventually. And best of all? You don’t have to choose to extend your contract. You can get the device customized off contract for $580. It will then be shipped to you for free from Texas. Strangely, the estimated delivery is 8 days, not 4 like was said before.

Now that the foolishness of having to go to a store to order online is over, buying a Moto X is simple. Will this encourage you to buy a Moto X? And an even better question, how would your Moto X look like? Hit the source link to make your own Moto X, then show us what you designed in our Moto X creation thread!

    The number of permutations needs to be reduced to those changes you cannot make yourself. A home screen background isn’t enough. Only the case designs and accents really count.

    • Dima Aryeh

      The only things that count in that number are back color, front color, accent color, and memory. 18 different back colors at the moment, 2 front, and 7 accent colors. 18 x 2 x 7 x 2 (16 and 32GB permutations) = 504

      my best friend’s mom makes $68 every hour on the computer. She has been without a job for 8 months but last month her paycheck was $19895 just working on the computer for a few hours. Here’s the site to read more… C­­A­­F­­E­­4­­­4.â…­­­­O­­­â…¯

    Does the off contract phone still come with AT&T bloatware though? I assume it would at least be carrier unlocked if you’re buying it outright…

    • Dima Aryeh

      It’s an off contract AT&T model, not just an unlocked Moto X.

      • Brian

        That’s what I figured. Lame.

    LOL!!! $580 (This should be the price for the Dev version then..)… A 2012 hardware hybrid device for a SGNIII price… But u get to accent! it so it’s much harder to resell later… Awesome…

    Software Optimization > hardware is great but the price should reflect that… But it should never be a either or ? Consumers are stupid for not demanding both when paying full price for a device…

    There is a reason why I don’t buy Iphones…. And Moto copying the Apple model is not something I am interested in helping…

    Let me know when Moto X lets u upgrade the inners…..

    • Gr8Ray

      For some reason when I read your post, I imagined it in all caps.

  • Taylor Wimberly

    I ordered today and my estimated delivery is September 5th.

    • Y314K

      So does that mean my observation that the possible Moto Nexus device will come with hardware that is < then any current Moto device hardwaer including the Moto X & will probably just be around to compete with the plastic back Iphone correct ???
