Sprint Finally Announces Moto X Launch Date, September 6 for $199

moto x

It was previously thought that the Moto X would launch on Sprint’s network on August 29, the same day as AT&T. Once that didn’t happen, there was no new confirmed date for Sprint customers that were hoping to pick up Motorola’s newest flagship device. That changed this morning, as Sprint confirmed that this Friday, September 6, the device will launch for $199.99 on contract. In addition, they even tease that within the coming months, Moto X purchases can look forward to MotoMaker

For a limited time only, new customers who switch their phone number to Sprint from another carrier will receive an additional $100 instant credit, reducing the price of Moto X to $99.99 (excluding taxes).

In the coming months, Sprint will also add the ability to customize Moto X with Moto Maker. With more than 2,000 possibilities to choose from, customers can design a phone that’s uniquely theirs from the front to the back.

Any Sprint users picking this up?

    but when will they have a 32gb and 64gb model available on Sprint?

  • Zombiest

    Would be nice to see Sprint announce some new Coverage rather than a new phone Tucson, Still without 4G from Sprint while places like Puerto Rico do have coverage.

    T-Mobile, WHERE YOU AT!!!?

    Is it me, or was this whole moto x launch a complete disaster? I went to a vzw store yesterday to get one and they had none in stock. The sales guy checked other stores and there are none in Massachusetts.

    • Adam Perez

      I was thinking the same thing. I went to all the Best Buys & Sprint stores in my area, and they all don’t have the phone or even a demo model. They aren’t even sure when they will be getting them. Just seems poor planning by Motorola or the carrier.

  • Weber

    It’s actually only $99

  • Jordan Pfingsten

    Well, they at least have a great phone to go along we a pretty poor network.

    At least you have great hardware!

  • Sporttster

    Just got back from the VZW store to check out the new phones. I wasn’t at all impressed by the X. Now the Maxx and the Ultra were very impressive. Their screens were killer! The X’s underwhelmed me quite a bit. Wouldn’t waste my time or $$ on the X. I’d very much consider the Maxx if I didn’t need both HDMI and SD card slot. Those are deal breakers for me, sadly…..I really liked em…

      The Moto X and the new DROID line are almost identical to each other except battery, storage (to some degree), and screen size. So the Maxx with the extra battery may be more useful to some. Personally, the 5″ screen is a bit big for me, and I liked the feel of the Moto X when I touched it for a bit at a store.

    If more carriers had the 32gb option I would be getting this phone no question, but I don’t want to sign up with AT&T, so I’m a bit SOL.

  • n11

    I just got mine on Rogers. Using Migrate to transfer files over, fairly efficient!

  • monkey082506

    Did I miss the T-Mobile announcement or are they the last one for the release?

    • Ryan

      T-Mobile is not selling the Moto X in stores. The T-Mobile variant will only be available online, though I’m not sure of an actual release date on that or if it’ll be around the November time-frame that all variants could see MotoMaker active. That’s what I’m waiting for myself.

      • monkey082506

        I heard the rumor that they would be selling through Google Play but was just double checking on a date. Thanks.

  • PyroHoltz

    What’s T-Mobile’s launch date?

    Sprint is the new Verizon. Well, minus the coverage, speed, reliability, customer service, and number of devices to choose from.

    • John

      Oh, well if you put it that way…

    • T4rd

      Plus unlimited data! (at 56k speeds)

      • bizi

        Is Sprint getting 56k speeds now?? They really have improved their network

        • picaso86

          56K speeds WOW! now my Sprint phone sounds like an old computer modem *Dial-up*

  • Droidzilla

    Sprint’s still around?

  • DEVOUR

    See…Verizon isn’t the last to release a flagship device…

    • Andrew Dahl

      To the surprise of us all! ;-)

    • Michael

      It’s still not available in store.

      • Ej McCarty

        They have it at a store by my house. They actually had it in two spots a dummy unit and a working unit.

        • JoshGroff

          Same here, I was playing with it the other day while waiting for someone to get me a new SIM card.

        • T4rd

          Yup, same here.

        Sprint is having to basically rebuild from the ground up after the complete failure that was WiMax. They basically gambled and lost. However, with Softbank at the helm, and a sizable influx of cash, they very well could be looking to make a comeback in the next year or so.

    • iNomNomAwesome

      I got my Moto X in the mail Tuesday, Verizon still hasn’t fixed a bug that won’t let me activate it.

      • kixofmyg0t

        What do you mean Verizon won’t let you activate it?

        • iNomNomAwesome

          Verizon told me that a bunch of Moto X’s got messed up or something, so I can’t transfer my phone number and stuff to my Moto X. So I have to wait for them to fix it.

          • kendokan

            I had the same problem with mine. On my old phone I had voice but no data, on my Moto X I had data but no voice. I wound up doing a factory reset and that fixed it. I think the problem was caused by not doing my initial setup in an area with good coverage. I’m told the same can happen if your old phone is still on when you activate the new one.

      • Gnex

        Haha I just got mine today. Me gusta.

    • chris125

      and verizon is getting the g2 first so that is a shocker

  • Fresh360

    Does anyone here have good coverage and fast speeds with Sprint in their area? The pricing is great but the network leaves a lot to be desired where I live.

    • Andrew Dahl

      I hear it’s pretty decent in the Minneapolis/St.Paul metro area. (Where I live) — Their coverage pales in comparison of AT&T or Verizon. When I lived in Fargo, ND, anything 5 miles west and beyond was a complete dead zone for my friends. Driving between Minneapolis and Fargo was also really hit or miss as well. Personally, I’d never switch.

    • Droidzilla

      Sprint has blazing fast speeds if you’re on a good WiFi connexion.

    • Guest

      I get good 4G coverage in Louisville, Kentucky. They haven’t officially announced us yet but I get good speed where I pick it up.

    • Fahad Beg
