Reminder: Today is Day-1 of Motorola’s $150-off Moto X Deal, Don’t Forget to Register for a Code (Updated)

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 8.38.19 AM

Everyone ready for take two of Motorola’s Cyber Monday extravaganza bonanza? After a rocky go-of-things on Monday, Motorola is kickstarting their $150-off Moto X promo this morning at 9AM Pacific (12PM Eastern). Things are a bit different this time around though, as you can’t purchase a custom made MotoMaker Moto X until Motorola has given you a code. 

The new deal works like this – in order to get a code, Moto has setup a landing page for registration. Once you have registered, you wait for a special code to arrive. With code in hand, you have 1 week to use it during checkout on a Moto X through MotoMaker.com before it expires. The code will knock off $150 from the full retail price of the phone. By going with a code system, Motorola is hoping to alleviate some of the pressure that their site sustained on Monday when the entire tech world flooded in to try and by a Moto X at the steeply discounted $349 price.

Developer Editions are excluded this time around since you were actually able to buy them on Monday.

The rest of the details can be found here (and here).

As of me clicking “publish” on this post, it looks like we are 20 minutes away from kick off.

UPDATE:  ALL GONE. The next wave opens up next Monday, December 9.

UPDATE 2:  Motorola just sent out email confirmation of registration to confirm that you will soon be able to buy a discounted Moto X. This email does not include your promo code, but it promises that they are still coming.

UPDATE 3:  Promo codes are being delivered!

  • bigceez2001

  • bigceez2001

  • help!
  • help!
  • help!
  • Remi Quezada

    Was supposed to get my moto x today but FedEx has delivery exception :/

  • jdawg5779

    Anyone still have a code not in use?

  • Suman Gandham

    Does the “Save my design” feature actually work for anyone here? For me, it either hangs after I press Save, or it saves, but nothing actually shows up in the Saved Designs section of my account… fail =/

  • delrayser

    Holy crap, that was fast. Ordered yesterday at 6PM EST, got the “We’re Building It” email at 11PM. Just got an email at 10PM today that it shipped, due to be delivered here in DC tomorrow by 8PM. FIFTY HOURS.

    • delrayser

      And now it’s stuck in Indianapolis because of the winter storm, no estimate of when it’ll get delivered. SOBS.

  • No longer waiting

    Phone has not shipped yet, but looks like it’s being assembled: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gedidandroid/with/9728431045/
    Check out the entire photo stream…pretty cool.

    BTW, look closely at this picture: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gedidandroid/9728431045/in/photostream/ there are two very interesting phones in the middle.

  • I have my code and everything but I’m slightly hesitant to order because I still have an older Droid Razr with a micro-sim while the X has a Nano-Sim. Does the Moto X come with the new sim card or do I have to ask Verizon for one (would they give any grief for getting a new card?)

  • grumpyfuzz

    Anyone’s Moto X ship yet? I got an email at 2 A.M that they’re assembling it, but it hasn’t shipped yet for me.

  • NYS

    code up for grabs… reply.

    • Robill

      Here’s a reply for code – thanks!

      • NYS

        what’s your email?

    Enjoy… H2DW-IVIF-B9YA-MLIA-7R45

    • Em

      Thank you so much! I waited 12 hours on Monday like everyone else here and designated my brother to get me a code yesterday because I had a work meeting during the promo time (ugh)…he did not take me seriously, though, when I told him to be on the site at 11, so naturally when he checked at 11:15 they were all gone. My expected delivery is Dec 10! Yay! Now I can keep my unlimited Verizon and finally get rid of my Droid X2 which can barely make a phone call anymore…

      Sent!

  • Hothfox

    Just got my “we’re assembling it” email. So freaking excited for this phone. I can’t wait to use all the features that are specific to Moto’s line of devices. I’ll always love my GNex, but I’m ready to shelve it aside from development testing.

  • dobiewankanobie

    I dont understand how the codes can be transferred. The FAQs say that you must have the same email, name and contact number in the order as when you registered. I guess they were bluffing?

  • Toney

    anyone still need a code?

  • Matthew Dickinson

    Got our two phones on order, looking forward to next Tuesday.

  • scuzzullbutt

    I got a code if someone would like it.

  • NexusMan

    The only “bad” thing about this sale is the delayed delivery times…ordered mine early Thursday morning and quoted a delivery of Tuesday…Now that’s fantastic in comparison to say a Google Play order, but I got spoiled by these 2 to 3 day deliveries previous Moto X buyers have received. What are the delivery times other’s have been quoted?

    • clobberedchina

      Gosh, I’ll bet they are busy in Ft. Worth this week. Maybe the assemblers will get some overtime and have some extra Christmas money.

      • NexusMan

        Exactly. Hopefully so.

  • dboots

    First to reply with an email address can have my extra code.

  • ryan savini

    i emailed my code out but the person never confirmed it… so here is my code someone can have, just don’t want to get any hopes up if it doenst work! H2DW-DVMF-QBHG-IXHX-YKC7 try it!!

  • JNo

    this is to put this comment thread over a thousand

  • willd

  • adamcorwin

    I’ve got an extra code if anyone still needs one.

  • Zach B.

    I”m thinking a “What Moto X did you make?” post is in order.

    • Larizard

      that’d be great!

  • bigceez2001

    i got a extra code i dont need who wants it

  • mcdonsco

    Ditto to the extra code request? PLEASE?

  • Taokip

    Does anyone have an extra code? Petty please with a cherry on top! I was 2 hours late today and I will not be available at all on the 9th. It would be greatly appreciated!

    • sfc2515

      I have one. How do I get it to you?

    • Taokip

      Anyone?

    • sfca

      Not sure what your last statement means? sandwiched? If you still need a code let me know how to get to you.

    • sfca

      sent

  • Nee Austin

    If someone would like to donate a code to a worthy cause (my 64 y/o mom 🙂 I’d be much appreciative. (She was disappointed today after I spent an hour talking her into getting one last night and missed it by a minute or two…boo Moto) zkosn (@t) zkosn.com Reward is one free photo with her new phone. 🙂

    • entertainmentopia

      I have an extra code I’m sending over to you! I got two because I was debating N5 and X, but chose the N5 so I got my wife an X and have an extra.

  • mrsastrocat

    I have a code if there is someone out there who missed out who wants to order a MotoMaker…

    • zk7841

      I would love to use it if you still have a free code!

      • mrsastrocat

        I do have it. What’s an email address I can send it to?

        • zk7841

          my username @ gmail.com

          • mrsastrocat

            Sent!

          • zk7841

            Wow, thank you so much!! I just placed my order for a royal blue + yellow accents Moto X! You are amazing, and I really appreciate the code!!

          • mrsastrocat

            You’re welcome! I was so freaked out that there would be a glitch after waiting 12 hours on Monday I signed up with two email addresses today. Hope you enjoy your Moto X! I ordered a Violet / Orange accent one. 🙂

          • zk7841

            Haha well I’m glad things worked out well for both of us! That’s an awesome color combo! Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy yours too!

  • Larizard

    Anyone ordered a Verizon Dev Edition that don’t want it anymore, because they want a MotoMaker version? I have a code, but really want a dev edition instead 🙁

  • iCoop

    Merry Christmas… H2DW-KNSC-FRXP-OUGR-A2MO

    • Muffstic

      Thanks iCoop! That was very nice of you. I missed it by an hour because I forgot that it was eastern. I work on a military base so it’s been hard to get free time lately. Much appreciated.

  • Alex Coldstone Simon
  • Wideout6

    Alright I actually one of the folks who registered twice because I was having an issue with my comp, just ordered my X and want to help someone out. Only fair way is to post code and first come first serve, hopefully it goes to someone who is going to actually use it. Posting at 930EST.

  • jujubee

    I was about to pull the trigger on this, and then started to second guess myself after I saw a post about screen burns in AMOLED screens. Is this a big issue with the Moto X?

    • Bradley Michael

      it was with my galaxy nexus. there’s obvious screen burn on the top bar and the on-screen buttons. hopefully it’s better on the x

      • Hothfox

        I’m operating under the assumption that by the time I can notice burn-in, I’ll be ready to replace it anyway. I’d had my Galaxy Nexus for about 20 months now and have only just noticed burn-in in the same place you have it.

  • itsacardigan

    Went to Verizon tonight and played with the Moto X and decided that it’s too small for me. Going with the Droid Maxx instead. I have a code so the first person to reply an email address gets it.

  • IanThorpe
  • Brnscofrnld

    I have three extra… I know, I know…. I got greedy. I really wanted to make sure we got a code to replace my wife’s Razr.

  • ryan savini

    i have my one and only code i am willing to give out. unfortunately for me, my bank account isn’t what i was hoping so i might as well give this to someone who can use it!! leave an email and ill help you out….

  • Kellin Brown
  • Michael Rhodes

    Anyone else get multiple that can help out a sad GNex user upgrade? 🙂

  • Suman Gandham

    Totally forgot about this – how long did it take for the codes to run out? Need to be prepared for Monday…

    • BaconEater

      9minutes

      • Suman Gandham

        Wow… do I need access to a high frequency trading platform to be successful? :p

        • BaconEater

          hah ya pretty much. good luck on monday!

        • Hothfox

          I didn’t do anything special, and I got one. I was simply on the website at 11:55am EST and started refreshing the page at that time, until the button came up to take me to the form.

  • RichFromBX

    I got a code if someone wants it – no strings attached, I just changed my mind

  • IanThorpe

    5 codes sold already, but I still have 6 more. The last 6 will be put up for 24-hour auctions on ebay, staggered about an hour apart. Make sure to search for “Motorola Moto X Code” Happy bidding!

  • brianem

    Guess I’m stuck on my pos Galaxy Nexus for the time being. Thanks to all those that grabbed multiple keys just because (double thanks for bragging about it just to make others feel bad) – some of us stuck on Verizon could have really used one. Ugh! I’m just as screwed next Monday with the lame 12 noon launch time. Some of us are at work and in meetings – the original botched Motorola date and time was before work.

    • IanThorpe

      Need a code? Check my ebay listings, “Motorola Moto X Code”!! Good luck!

    • Hothfox

      Everyone who participated had a different schedule. It’s not Moto’s fault for not scheduling around your specific needs. Noon is lunch hour for a lot of employees too, so that seemed like a good time to me.

  • Shawn Gill

    Got my moto x!! Finally can put this gnex to rest!!

  • Severo Rivera

    I had no idea that you get a free $10 Google play credit as well. Just redeemed it.

  • Jason Palmer

    I also have an extra code. Was going to get the wife a phone but finances are a little tight and we opted out. Anybody want it?

  • Roberto Munoz

    Anybody need a discount code? I have an extra one

    • Jason Tsujimura

      I do!

      • Roberto Munoz

        H2DW-PBAD-936E-Q93W-RB5E

        Enjoy …

        • Jason Tsujimura

          Cheers mate, thank you!

          • Evadingfate

            The man gives you $150 and you didn’t even upvote his comment?

          • Jason Tsujimura

            Huh? I did!

  • MyStroPro

    Would someone mind sharing an unused code for a gent who was stuck in meetings all morning? Got to enjoy the daily grind I suppose.

    I need to retire my OG did Razr badly and am looking to leave Verizon and would love some help from our community.

  • clobberedchina

    Thank you Droid Life and a big, special thank you to the commenting community. You set me straight when I was trying to register this morning. Thank you so much.

    • droidrazredge

      What is the proper way to register for a code so I know for Monday ?

      • clobberedchina

        Just check in right here before the sale starts. The folks at Droid Life will be your guides.

  • Jason Tsujimura

    I totally spaced it this morning and got the time wrong by an hour. Thank goodness for next Monday!

  • barrmy

    trade – two codes if someone wants to sell me their droid maxx at a reasonable price 🙂
    stupid TX taxes brings this up to $380 so i might as well get a maxx for the battery life and 32gb

  • George264

    H2DW-I29E-OTNT-P3ZH-4RQ5
    here you go guys
    I used one of the codes posted because I couldn’t wait so here’s mine. FYI if multiple people enter the code at once it still works, woohoo!

    • Calayna

      Thank you good person! I will be passing on the good vibes/karma to everyone I come into contact at work tomorrow. And now I will not be stalking the website on Monday so that some other good person can get their code. Thank you! *internet hugs*

      • George264

        Haha no problem just passing it on. The guy who posted his spare code that 3 people actually redeemed allowed me to post. I was really scared at noon today that id have to wait till Monday I have no patience! I’ve watched every moto x
        Video on youtube

        • Calayna

          Well I’m glad both of us and many others got the phone we’ve been drooling over. I’ve been following the Moto X since Aug. Played with it in store and knew I needed it. My patience lasted me all the way till now at least. And again thanks!

  • stush0104

    I have an extra code. First to reply to this can have it.

  • Kevin Zukerman

    I got my promo code and ordered just a few minutes ago! Stoked to get a $10 Google Play store credit in the deal, too. Nice work Moto! (definitely wasn’t saying that on Monday)

  • Jaciel

    If it says Stock:Available December 10…does that mean I should get by Dec.10?

  • friasco

    Can someone tell me what information was needed to fill the form to get the code? i heard that you need all your sim card info and other stuff.

    • evltwn

      all that was asked was your 1st and last name, email address, and a contact number.

  • Michael Bell

    Wifi is horrible on this phone. My Note 3 connects instantly and shows 3 of 4 bars, the X took 5 minutes of forcing and shows 1. Sending it back, you get what you pay for.

    • fooler

      what information do I need to fill in the form to get the moto x??

    • Just Saying

      If you got it at a discount, you’d probably be better off selling it…

    • gtg465x

      You got a defective unit, something is wrong with your router, or you are hard core BSing. No problems with Wifi for anyone else. The Moto X actually has better radio performance than the S4 and Note 3.

  • Hothfox

    Yay! Device ordered, going back because I forgot to get screen protectors for 30% off with THANKS. Got a $10 Google Play credit for sharing my design too :3

    SO EXCITED TO GET RID OF THE GALAXY NEXUS.

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      how do i get the 10 dollar credit?

      • ilovetechnology

        After purchase it asks you to share on Facebook or Google+, and they give you a $10 credit as a redeemable code afterwards.

    • Castel

      what information do I need to fill in the form to get the moto x?

      • Hothfox

        I had to put down first and last name, email address, and a contact phone number. They email you shortly after letting you know you registered for the code successfully, and then a couple hours later, you get the actual code.

  • Jaciel

    help! I am going with the crimson back but im torn between white or black front! I like the look of both so idk which one to pick! Accent color will be black

  • Fedor Martsenyuk

    Here you go Boys and Girls:

    H2DW-FOMS-UNQY-KGGF-NI9F

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      thanks fedor

    • fjohnston

      cheers!

  • djab

    Just received my code!

  • Daniel J. Peters

    Done! Finally! Thanks DL community!

  • Astroprojector

    So wait let me get this straight. There is a Google Nexus 5 16GB for $349 and Moto X 16GB for $349 after discount. it like comparing Ferrari to Ford Pinto. Here we have Ferrari for $350K and Ford Pinto for $500K but we give you $150K discount so you can buy the Pinto for the same price as Ferrari.

    Am I missing something?

    I got two codes just in case, but most likely will not use them.

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      your missing the fact that the ford pinto is DOPE!

      • Astroprojector

        OK, Yogo then.

        • Col_Angus

          I think you mean Yugo…

    • cheezeboy

      VZW

    • Tod Cox

      If you think the X is a Pinto you have not done your research.

      • gtg465x

        Yup. And total douche move of him to reserve multiple codes when he doesn’t even want the phone haha. “I don’t understand why everyone thinks this phone is better than the Nexus 5, so I’m going to prevent those who want it from getting it!”

    • Michael Rhodes

      will you be sharing either of those codes if you dont use them?

  • Jose Ramos

    i got to codes, just used one, my sis went for an iphone, ill gladly give it to some one that “really need it”

  • Waiting game

    LOL, just searched Ebay and there are already a handful of codes for sale. Just killing time waiting for the email.

    • jovi

      Watch them kill those codes.

  • Fedor Martsenyuk

    Just got mine. I have 2 Extra ones if anyone is interested.

  • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

    Dear Motorola Mobility Inc,
    Where is my promotional code? I recieved a confirmation email but have not gotten my code yet! It has been a long time since then!
    Please send me my code, Motorola Mobility Inc!

    Thank you for your time,
    Sambit

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      sambit 4 ever!

  • PaulWalker

    I really don’t appreciate everyone telling me to “die in a fire.”

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      show som respect pls

  • Michael Bell

    The 32GB Moto Maker I ordered on Monday just showed up right now although it had originally said Friday the 6th. Woohoo!

    • evltwn

      Surprised to see you so excited for a “sub par” phone.

      • gtg465x

        Jealous much that all of the tech blogs think this “sub par” phone is better than whatever phone you’re using? It’s OK, keep trying to justify your purchase. You’re doing good.

        • evltwn

          I’m not the one who called it sub par…Michael Bell did on Monday.

  • WILLD

    GOT IT… FREE SHIPPING.. BUT NOT SURE HOW FAST THESE WILL SHIP OUT.. ANYONE KNOW?

    • ConroeEd

      Mine says est delivery the 9th. But it is only 1 day to make it from Austin to Houston

  • Scott Smith

    So I think we should take some votes on what the most hideous color combinations would be for a custom moto X. I’ll start, this makes me want to barf… black front, olive back, purple accents.

  • ConroeEd

    Ordered mine 5 min ago.

  • TMAN213

    Just got my code at 1:22pm. I ordered at 8:58am PST

    • BaconEater

      got any extra?

      • TMAN213

        Sorry BE. I wanted to play it safe and just do one request. But hopefully you’ll get in Monday or I’m sure the people that did get more then one will hopefully give them out. They should email them to Kellen and let him do them the right way.

        • ilovetechnology

          That’s a good idea, better than trying to share here in the comments.

  • Severo Rivera

    Just ordered my Moto X. Phew..what a relief.

  • NexusMan

    Just got my code 4:21pm.

  • droidrazredge

    What case is better;Air Jack Case for Moto X versus Air
    Jacket Grip Case ? or should I get a different case altogether ?

    • obviousman

      No case.

      • droidrazredge

        I’ve always managed to drop every phone I’ve had no matter how hard I try not to. With an off contract price like this I really want to protect it .

        • obviousman

          That makes no sense. This is probably the cheapest off contract price phone you have purchased in 10 years.

          • droidrazredge

            This is the first time I will be buying off contract. I have always used the 2-year subsidized to purchase a phone. Since they are getting rid of unlimited from Verizon on upgrades this is the reason I jumped on this option

    • NexusMan

      I don’t do cases on my phone either, but if i were like you and feel the need to get one because of constant dropping, I’d get the Air Jacket Grip Case.

  • Severo Rivera

    Just got it, yessssss!!!

  • Cameron Horst
    • IanThorpe

      Don’t sign up for spam from this guy, go to ebay instead and bid with confidence! Search “Motorola Moto X Code”

    • Cameron Horst

      lol, im just trying to share the love here. I spent 10 hours in front of the computer on monday as did many others. I intend to give away my code for free to those who went through the same.

      • NexusMan

        Motorola could have shared the love just fine. They didn’t need you hogging up codes, so you could “share the love,” they were already sharing.

        • Cameron Horst

          after what i went through on monday, i absolutely did not trust their website, and filled out the form twice. Sorry.

          • NexusMan

            I hear you. That I can understand. Just sensitive to others who claimed like 11 codes for their own selfish, opportunistic reasons.

    • ColZill

      Email sent. I know it’s probably too late, but a family member got screwed and didn’t get the code.

  • Valerie Rub

    i did not like their old feature. Please explain me it new feature after that i will decide for the purchasing. Current i am using Nokia Lumia it has Advance feature.

    • bigd

      hey baby

      • Severo Rivera

        Really??

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      hey baby

  • Daniel J. Peters

    Over 3 hours since the code request form was filled out, and over 2 hours since the hurry up and wait email from moto was received, and still no code. ugh.

    • NexusMan

      And 7 more days to order your $150 discounted Moto X. Relax.

      • Daniel J. Peters

        You’re right, of course, but I was here for 12 hours on Monday, and I just want this process to be over.

        • NexusMan

          I hear ya.

  • Razma

    my motomaker version that i managed to order on monday was already delivered!!! holy crap that was fast, i still need the micro to nano sim cutter, ordered the one recommended by DL

    • Kofi Williams

      Thats fast! that means the first orders today have a possibility to arrive by friday

      • Razma

        I’d say so, i was part of the first wave i’d say, i ordered mine for the cyber monday deal, managed to get my order thru around noon when motomaker came alive for like 30 seconds. and just to give an idea of how far and fast it was delivered, im from Long Island NY, and it was assembled and shipped and delivered from Fort Worth TX in less than 2 days.

    • Alex

      I’m still waiting for them to ship my DE that i ordered Monday…

  • chris_johns

    im….still waiting…grr

    • Severo Rivera

      Me too: (

    • bigpdad

      i’m gonna be slangin them 32gb ones at all teh hoez

    • NexusMan

      Which did you get?

  • Turd_Ferguson

    wtf the promo code they sent me is not working 🙁

    • alksdfjlkas

      Yeah, they’ve been having problems with them.

    • Turd_Ferguson

      Had to empty cart and start over, then code was already entered.

      • NexusMan

        So did you get it to work eventually?

  • Severo Rivera

    Has anybody got the promo code?

    • Jeff

      I got my promo code about 10-15 minutes ago and it worked fine for me.

      I hate your face. That is so not cool.

      • Severo Rivera

        Are you really that bored??

    • Daniel J. Peters

      There’s a link to report this to ebay, also, right?

      • Jack.Mehoff

        It does not violate eBay policy

      • ilovetechnology

        Yes, selling electronic coupons is actually against eBay’s terms of use. If you see any listings you should report them.

    • BenG
  • Sina

    No Bank of America. Nobody asked you to send me an email.

  • Severo Rivera

    no code yet, come one Moto I want my phone 🙁

  • Nick24

    Hey, if the date says In-Stock December 9, does that mean that’s when it ships or that’s when I should be getting it? I’m trying to figure out where to have the phone shipped, because I will be different places next week…

    • Got Mine!

      Mine says it’ll be delivered December 9, but who knows if they’ll be able to meet that date.

  • Greg Morgan

    What colors should i get??????????????????

    • Passenger57

      ALL BLACK

    • itsacardigan

      Chalk back……Metallic silver buttons…..Black front…Oh Dats Nice!!!

      • Severo Rivera

        Hey you copied me 🙂

      • Greg Morgan

        meh, i want colors!!!! i can’t make up my mind lol

      • Scott Smith

        That would be perfect if I was going for the dreary, post apocalyptic, monochromatic look. 😉 All my phones have been black in the past so I’m going to spice things up with a red back, white front, and silver buttons. To each his own though, that’s the beauty of Moto Maker!

      • George264

        I did the same thing except with blue buttons. I’m having a crisis. One side of me really really wants colors and red and white with black buttons looks great, but I fear I might get bored of the colors or end up hating them, so neutral colors would be the better choice. Navy, metalic, and white front also looks good. Damn.

        • Scott Smith

          Yeah, I hear you. I figure if I get bored of my color choice, I’ll just buy a cheap case and slap it on to change the look.

  • IanThorpe

    I’ve got 6 of my 11 now! Next ebay listing in 10 minutes!!!

    • IanThorpe

      Oh yeah, search “Motorola Moto X Code”

    • chris_johns

      someone tell moto about this guy so they cancel his codes

      • IanThorpe

        My codes are legit. Bid with confidence!

    • itsacardigan

      I would take a chance on waiting for Monday’s sale before i forked over another $50 to get one sooner.

  • Zach B.

    I got my code :’). It’s over. It’s finally over.

  • droidrazredge

    What are people’s thoughts about Air Jack Case for Moto X versus Air Jacket Grip Case ? or should I get a different case altogether ?

    • NexusMan

      Not a case man, but I like the Grip case because I like the color accent, as well as the fact that the sides are grippy.

  • avs

    Just ordered mine. Ordered Motorola Skip too. Used THANKS code ($4.50 off) + received $10 Play credit – means Skip almost free!

    • droidrazredge

      How did you get 10$ Play Credit ?

      • Zach B.

        I’ve heard of some sort of social network sharing thing that’ll get you credit (G+ I would assume.).

      • avs

        Right on the order confirmation screen, Motorola offers you an option to share your design on G+ and/or Facebook. As soon as you do that, you receive a $10 code which you can redeem at Google Play. Very seamless, took me less than 30 secs to do so.

      • avs

        Here’s a screenshot. Even if you have ordered it you can share and get $10 Play Credit. Just go to motorola.com > sign in > my account > client order (you should see the image I posted with this comment. Hope this helps.

        • droidrazredge

          Thanks I will try that.

    • NexusMan

      Wait, how did you get the $10 Play credit?

  • jnt

    Just like they promised…

  • Andrew Keller

    Delivered and ordered! It’s over…it’s finally over. *cries*

    • NexusMan

      lol

  • CCCO

    Code has been delivered…

    • Matthew Dickinson

      Same here, now to find a way to use two on one order.

      • Huh?

        Why not just have two separate orders? Shipping is free on orders over $75.

      • BaconEater

        Can you spare your extra?

        • Matthew Dickinson

          If you can convince my wife that she doesn’t need a new phone.

          • BaconEater

            she doesn’t.

  • disastrousrainbow

    You only need ONE code for multiple devices. Says it right in their FAQ.

    • IanThorpe

      Need a code? Check my ebay listings under “Motorola Moto X Code” all day!

    • Matthew Dickinson

      That’s not how I read it.

  • Got Mine!

    Placed my order! Expected to arrive by FedEx on Monday, although who knows if they’ll be able to meet that date with the extra demand. 🙂

    • obviousman

      Lies. They send them USPS.

      • Michael Bell

        The one I ordered Monday is coming FedEx

    • grumpyfuzz

      don’t think there will be a lot, it was only delayed by one day for people who order them now. since they only had a limited supply for the deal, they should be able to keep up with demand.

  • IanThorpe

    $$$ EARLY BIRD SPECIAL $$$ The first Moto X code is up on ebay right now for $40 Buy it Now! Search “Motorola Moto X Code” and get it quick! The rest won’t be Buy it Now!!! (sorry it won’t let me post links here)

    • Severo Rivera

      Yes!!

    • IanThorpe

      Sold! In just over a minute!!!! Keep checking all day. I’ve got 10 more!

      • Severo Rivera

        Awesome!!

      • Severo Rivera

        I need all 10

    • Daniel J. Peters

      Glad to see you’re just trolling. That’s OK, I’m bored too. It has been a long process since Monday, just to score a phone.

  • hyperbeatser

    y’all are probably going to want to hurt me, but I just cancelled my verizon DE I was able to order monday since I got a moto maker discount code today…

    • Severo Rivera

      Well it’s your choice.

  • Severo Rivera

    I am just waiting until I get my promotion code.

  • delrayser

    gettin’ trolly in here

  • Severo Rivera

    Moto X 2 just announced! Just kidding

  • ETPhoneHomeT

    Rumor has it that wood backs will be out before Christmas. If I have 1 week to use the code, plus I believe you are allowed one free Motomaker exchange within the first 14 days, that puts me at 12/25/13…hmmmmmm…hope rumors are correct!

    • CCCO

      I was thinking along those lines as well but given this whole fiasco, I doubt Moto would allow this. A TON of people would be sending them back after they’d only had them for a few days. My guess is that wood backs are pushed into 2014 sadly…I’d love to be wrong though since I want a wood back!

    • Megan1985

      Maybe it’s a good thing they didn’t release the wood in time for the Cyber Monday deal? Everybody is waiting on the wood backs, can you imagine the site collapse at 350 with that backing? Hope you get what you are after.

      • pele

        Wood won’t be out until at least January.

        • Megan1985

          I don’t personally understand the wood backing, I would break it. It’s not a fit for me, but I enjoy everyone’s right to choose.

    • Michael Bell

      Anyone who wants a wood backed phone is nuts. Drop it once and bye bye

    • Waiting game

      I’m speculating that there will not be a phone with a wood back. The wood backs will be sold as an accessory for $xx so no need to trade in the phone.

      • Dennis Woodside

        Incoorrect. Soon.

  • IanThorpe

    Well, so far I’ve got 3 of the 11 that I was able to get in on. I’ll be putting these up on ebay throughout the day for you guys! Search for “Motorola Moto X Code” Happy bidding!

    • Severo Rivera

      Some people.

    • asdfa

      hah, cute…ebay

      • IanThorpe

        Yep, 24 hour auctions.

    • Megan1985

      I love how you present this as, I’m doing it for you!

      • IanThorpe

        I did, I saved you the inconvenience of trying to get it on the site all day.

        • Megan1985

          You would be correct if you had no intention of profiting from this. That, however, is not the case. You have no intention of purchasing a phone that many want and were willing to pay for.

    • middlehead

      You are an awful person and I hope your eventual death is excruciating.

      • IanThorpe

        Happy holidays!

    • Daniel J. Peters

      Maybe you’ll die in a fire before you get the codes on ebay. You should post them here as a safeguard.

      • IanThorpe

        Haha, no. But you can check out the other stuff in my ebay store while you wait!

        • Daniel J. Peters

          Nah, my DE should be here soon, and the Mrs. has a code on the way from Moto. I’ll just keep waiting to hear about that fire instead…

  • Megan1985

    I feel like, no matter what Motorola did here, they were going to make someone mad. There will always be people who say, it should have been done this way or that way. No matter what, you were going to have people snatching up excessive amounts of phones and selling them. There were plenty of people who were after the off contract price and not necessarily the customization. This is not a new method. People are greedy and selfish.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    The codes are now only good for 3 days according to the email.

    • Sina

      Troll master 3000 right here

  • Matthew Dickinson

    Going by a Best Buy tonight to see the colors in person, should be ordering afterwards, well, if my code is in by then.

    • clobberedchina

      That is a dandy idea!

  • Jose Ramos

    go it, ordered.

  • CorkyRogers

    Just got my code, phone is ordered, est delivery dec 9th. anyone else?…not trying to rub it, was honestly just curious and also letting it be known that the codes were going out

  • Jaciel

    How long do you think shipping will take? I am going on winter break in a week and a half so I don’t want to send it to my school mailbox if it will take longer than that! :/

    • obviousman

      Send it home.

      • Jaciel

        Yeah I think that is what I am going to do just to be safe.

    • Michael Bell

      My Moto X I ordered on Monday is out for delivery today

      • Kofi Williams

        motomaker i heard takes 5 days

        • Michael Bell

          The one I ordered Monday was expected to be delivered Friday. Woke up to an email from Motorola saying it had shipped this morning and would be delivered today.

          • droidrazredge

            Which model did you order ?

      • Jaciel

        wow that is really fast! Do you think it will be the same even with all the orders going in compared to the amount that got placed on monday?

      • Jeff C

        MotoMaker or Dev Edition?

        • Michael Bell

          Moto Maker

          • Jeff C

            How the heck do they ship a MotoMaker before an off the shelf Dev Edition?

          • Alex

            Yeah I’m still waiting for mine to actually ship.

          • droidrazredge

            I’m still wondering that myself. They have to build your custom model as it’s not what the stocks come with, especially if you put an engrave on it. The DEV editions should already be made so my guess is as good as yours as to why the Motomaker ones are shipping before the DEV editions even show a shipping status. I’m still waiting for mine.

          • Alex

            I chatted with a customer service rep today and all they said is that my order had been forwarded to fulfillment.

          • Jeff C

            Mine shipped today, will be here monday since it is weekday delivery only.

  • lkasdjfkl

    Oh no, the first round of codes were invalid and they have to start over per @motorolasupport

  • Jer.Drake

    Thanks for hangin’ in there with us. No matter how often things change, one thing is constant—Motorola is happy to have loyal customers like you. Here’s your unique promo code BQHTJ-PM8GF-6DHH7-K7F4X-KMF93

    • BaconEater

      Doesn’t work.

      • Jeff

        *facepalm*

      • Jer.Drake

        I already used it, duh

  • itsacardigan

    They’ll probably drop the off contract price down to $399 for good a week before Christmas.

    • Kofi Williams

      thats wishful thinking

  • shkrmkr79

    got my confirmation email that my code will be delivered within a few hours as well! Stoked about this…T-Mobile prepaid here I come! Suck it Verizon!

  • ssl48

    Why kind of promotion is this? The phones are sold out already? It says try again on Monday!!

    • Hothfox

      Can’t tell if serious or trolling.

      • ssl48

        I’m serious. I don’t have time to sit by the computer, unfortunately.

        • tom

          So you are saying that a great promo should last longer then 2.5 hours, especially when they have it again monday? Do the math.

          • ssl48

            Yes, that’s what I’m saying. Guess I’ll get my dad an iPhone then…

        • obviousman

          You don’t need to “sit by the computer.” Just be at your computer for 2 minutes at noon EST.

    • Guest

      If you try again on Monday, I recommend making sure you sit at your computer for at least the first few minutes of the code availability, because otherwise you’ll miss out again.

      • ssl48

        Thanks for the suggestion 🙂

    • Hawk888

      The kind of promotion that you obviously did not read the details on.

  • MKader17

    I literally had a coworker at work sign me up while I was in a meeting with my boss and his boss. I wasn’t going to wait for Monday again.

    • asdfdsa

      Literally?

      • Jeff

        Literally for realsies.

  • Got an email confirming the upcoming email containing the code. At this point, I just hope I don’t have to get another code in order to receive the actual code.

    • Kofi Williams

      you’ll get the code next

  • Kofi Williams

    So $150.00 off the phone, 30% on accessories and $10 credit on Google Play if you share. Not bad even after Monday.

    • tom

      Credit if you share what?

      • Kofi Williams

        share a G+ or Facebook post about the Moto X

        • aklsdfjl

          Not worth it. I have way too many followers for a measly $10.

          • Jeff

            I am unpopular, so I have no issues with throwing spam at people. Especially when most of them do the same to me.

  • chris_johns

    yeah i got the c*ck tease email…but at least i know im in there wooo…time to tell the woman shes gettin a new phone for xmas(only 16gig f that b*tch)

    • CCCO

      Wow, yeah sounds like she’s definitely the lucky one this Christmas…

      • chris_johns

        Of course she is…shes with me

        • CCCO

          Haha, such a douche…I hope your code email filters to your spam folder and gets thrown away…

          • chris_johns

            U love me

          • CCCO

            Haha…

      • chris_johns

        Lolllll

  • Severo Rivera

    Dammit, no codes yet 🙁

  • hyperbeatser

    got an email confirming my reg/ code will be sent in a few hours

    • Severo Rivera

      Me too!

  • DJ Pauly D

    CODES ARE HEAH!

  • NorCalDroid

    Email inbound! Woot!

  • Daniel J. Peters

    I’ve got the VZW DE in the shipping que from Monday, and a promo code is on the way to the Mrs. account for her MotoMaker, but now, I am starting to have second thoughts. Will these phones be better than my wife’s cracked screen GNex? Or my current (3rd) replacement GNex? Will the battery life be better? Any less lag? Reception?

    • Jeff

      I suggest you read some reviews.

    • Severo Rivera

      Believe me, it will so don’t worry.

    • asdfads

      lol

    • moelsen8

      night and day between gnex and this in all areas.

    • capecodcarl

      You spent $800 on phones and didn’t bother to read or watch any reviews on the phone? 🙂

  • Kofi Williams

    Just ordered!

    • Severo Rivera

      The case or the phone?

      • Kofi Williams

        both but with the code

    • Severo Rivera

      So you already got you’re code, lucky.

      • Kofi Williams

        here was the text: Thanks for hangin’ in there with us. No matter how often things change, one thing is constant—Motorola is happy to have loyal customers like you. Here’s your unique promo code

        • Severo Rivera

          Cool!

  • clobberedchina

    What do you think about the $29.95 clear Snap Case?

    • Severo Rivera

      You can get a diztronic version that’s really good for like $10.

    • Jeff

      I think that cases on phones are a bad thing, especially for a phone like the Moto X that was made to have a wonderful form factor.

      • Hothfox

        I’d agree. I just use a case while I’m at the gym or outdoors.

        • Dinkfer

          You go to the gym? I’ll trade you my extra discount code for nudes! 😉

      • chris_johns

        bumper case of ebay…just covers the sides so u can see n feel the beauty of the phone

    • moelsen8

      i considered it when i bought mine, but it didn’t look like it allowed for feeling the dimple, which is one of the best parts of the phone. find one with a cutout for it on amazon. i love my hyperion tpu one i got for like $7 or $8.

    • chris_johns

      ebay has bumper cases which ima buy i rather feel the whole back of the phone…there cheap as ish also

    • Kelly

      Honestly, don’t do it. I got the Incase Pro Shell (virtually identical except for the rubberized border) when I bought mine on Moto Maker because I liked the look of it and was tempted by the convenience of buying a phone and a case all at once. It’s a good looking case, but it’s ridiculously slippery–your phone will slide right off of any slanted surface. I’m still using the case because I spent money on it and I’m stubborn, but I think you’re better off with a bumper.

  • adsfdsklj

    If these phones were made in China, we’d have them by now.

  • Kofi Williams

    Got mine but the code isn’t working yet…

  • delrayser

    They’re taking so long because they’re artisanal promo codes. One dude at Motorola HQ is making each one by hand from locally sourced ingredients.

    • Brad Ryder

      yessssss

  • Sina

    To wait and bank on wood backs coming within the promotion timeframe or not is my question now.

    • asdfsdaf

      Don’t count on it.

  • adsfdsklj

    I have an idea, why doesn’t everybody post the text from their emails here? Gosh, that would be super interesting and informative. Because geez, it’s not like we don’t already know that the emails have gone out and what they say.

  • Severo Rivera

    I wonder if everyone is going to get the code at the same time.

    • Kofi Williams

      I think so

  • chihova

    Just got my confirmation email…woot!

    It won’t be long…

    • discstu37

      Exactly what I got. Boom!

    • Jeff

      They must be assembling the custom promo codes by hand, just like the phones.

    • Relief

      Got that, too. That’s a relief. 🙂 Must have typed in the right e-mail address. 😉 Time to get some productive work in!

    • Hawk888

      Got this too.

          • BaconEater

            Can you txt her now and ask? Lol, my mom could use a good xmas gift.

          • barrmy

            she can’t read txt at work but will be out soon, anyhow i’m still waiting on my codes to come through

        • barrmy

          still need a code?

    • itsacardigan

      Same here which is the same as Jeff’s same here.

  • kailua

    Per @MotorolaSupport tweet a few minutes ago: “No codes are out yet”.

  • West Anderson

    if anyone has a extra code, I could use one, planning to get one for my wife.

    • Har.Mar

      Extra code is $50 via Western Union to Nigeria ONLY!

  • Turd_Ferguson

    BaZinga!!! Motorola got us again! There are no codes!

  • Silly

    Why don’t they send out a confirmation e-mail that you’ll be getting your confirmation e-mail? 😉

    • Oops

      Looks like that’s exactly what they did. 🙂

  • dodger55fan

    I got quite a few extra codes just in case 🙂

    • obviousman

      Just in case what? Just in case you are a douche? Spoiler: you already are.

      • Hothfox

        Why are you replying to yourself?

        • Hawk888

          lol, wow

          • Hothfox

            Site must be weird, because when I left that comment the username on both those posts was the same. My bad.

          • Hawk888

            It still looks that way to me too. That would have been funny as crap, heck it still was.

          • moelsen8

            it does that for me every now and again too, especially on pages with a lot of posts. very weird until you realize to refresh.

      if you want to share any that would be swell 🙂

  • Waiting…

    MotorolaSupport said a few batches of codes had gone out by now.

  • scuzzullbutt

    I may have an extra code will give it to someone if i do.

    • fjohnston

      would love it, please!

  • Carlos R

    Motorola, your few hours is up in about 5 min

    • NexusMan

      I’ve always considered 4 to be a few…which gives them at least another 2 hours.

  • runninman

    I hope motorola’s definition of few is not the same as soon!

  • fjohnston

    If anyone has a spare code I would love one. I missed today’s sale because of an exam and my order for a DE got cancelled on Monday after being up at 530am then going on to calling them numerous times to sort it out and being on hold for hours. Now Motorola is refusing to honor it or let me try another card

    • Jim.Buck

      Yes, I will be happy to provide an extra discount code for the bargain price of only $45

      • fjohnston

        way to be a dick

    • G.Brookes

      This one was extra, enjoy!

      BQHTJ-PM8GF-6DHH7-K7F4X-KMF93

    • droidrazredge

      How do you know your DE from Monday got cancelled ? Did they send you an email confirmation about your order being cancelled ? I’m starting to wonder if mine is cancelled as well.

      • fjohnston

        Yeah, I got an email about 3 hours after the order was confirmed. You can also check under order status when you log in.

        • droidrazredge

          Mine still shows “has not shipped” you think that means I’m still in the clear or is there a chance mine was cancelled ?

          • fjohnston

            You’re probably still in the clear. 🙂

  • asdfasdfas

    Will trade codez for nudez.

    • chris_johns

      u win

  • Motorola was a fantastic brand in mobiles but not any more! I think the best scenario will be sell their patents to others companies.

    • chris_johns

      lol…smh…there is only one company that makes a phone with as good quality as motorola…and i shall not name that devil fruit here..well htc also makes a quality product

  • JNo

    I will sell my code for $200 ….oh wait. All kidding a side anyone who got extra codes for the intent of selling them are douche bags.

  • How long is Unlimited Data going to last anyway? All this trouble and Verizon will probably put it on EOL sometime next year.

  • asdfasdfas

    Here, I don’t need this one:

    WXHQ-AR82-821F-QQAL-8KSD

    • Detonation

      You already got your code? Site said it would be a few hours

      • Insanity

        If that is a real code, it’s probably already used up at this point. 🙂

      • Jason M. Kosmiski

        @Motorola Support said codes are going out later today.

    • Guy Pierce

      That’s a windows Vista code! HAHA!

  • Scott Smith

    I may or not have gotten in on this (still waiting for the code), but I consider this a fail on Motorola’s part. The promo was over in 8 minutes and I guarantee you half of the codes were probably scooped up by trolls on slickdeals and other sites who plan to sell them on ebay and various places. The last minute change in plan was also poorly communicated and the official promo page didn’t go live with the sign up until 3-4 minutes after the moto homepage did. A lot of us were left refreshing the promo page with nothing happening, not realizing we could go to the homepage and sign up.

    • Scott Smith

      And moto’s claim of doubling the number of phones available is a bit disingenuous. I think there is a chance they actually sell less phones than they otherwise would have, given that some codes will likely go unused, since some of the trolls who try to resell the codes might not be able to. I’m sure there are also some people who think they might want a Moto X (i.e. are on the fence) and figure they might as well get a code — and then may ultimately decide not to use it.

    • CCCO

      Yeah they bonked the incorrect page pretty bad. The only reason I knew the main page had it was because of the comments on here that I had up in a separate tab which allowed me to get in on time. Also, yeah it’s pretty crappy that people scooped 5 codes with intent to use only 1 and sell the rest.

      • NexusMan

        Yea. Anyone who scooped up a bunch of codes and locked out others from getting just one, is an a$$.

    • discstu37

      Agreed, completely. Don’t give instructions with it making it sound like that was the right page and then tweet out the correct URL right at noon when people were slamming f5 on the holiday page.

      • NexusMan

        It was done for just that reason. So people could log on and get codes in a calm, civilized manner, and not take down the servers with 50 million refreshes.

    • chris_johns

      gotta be quicker then that…and u can try again on monday…so you gonna man up or would you like me to call you a waaaaaambulance

      • CCCO

        Classy…

        • chris_johns

          🙁

      • Scott Smith

        Thanks to all the great DL readers, I was quickly alerted to the sign up on the homepage and got my registration info in around 9:02, so I’m pretty sure I’ll get a code. If I was the average joe, not tracking this on DL, then I would have been very confused and might have missed out. That doesn’t make for a good promo in my opinion.

        • NexusMan

          If you were able to leave your info, you are GUARANTEED a code. After you submitted it, it confirmed you’re code is on its way.

        • NexusMan

          Most deals work that way…you have to be in the know to catch them.

      • NexusMan

        Agreed.

    • NexusMan

      It wasn’t that difficult to figure out. I clicked refresh like 3 times too, but then, when I saw it was already 12:00pm and the refresh wasn’t working, I just loaded Motorola.com, and got my code. They said it would be live at 12 noon, so if you see that it didn’t refresh at 12 noon, try something else. I think it was rolled out in a great manner. Don’t forget, you ALSO have another chance on Monday, and for that chance, you now know exactly what to do. It’s against Moto’s policy to sell codes, so if they find out about that, I’m sure they’ll intervene.

  • Severo Rivera

    I just hope I get the code today.

  • techymexican

    Well the standard Black T-Mobile Moto X just arrived from FedEx. I still want a customized one and return this one.

  • chris_johns

    still no email….ugh

    • Michael Bell

      Has it been a few hours?

      • Bryan Anderson

        Feels like days? Hehe….

      • Tom

        i’m from 3 days in the future, so yes

        • Michael Bell

          Shut your magical hole!

      • chris_johns

        its been over an hour…and thats an hour to long!

  • Brad Ryder

    Now I’m paranoid I put my email in wrong…

    • ScooberJake

      Ha! I was too, worried I typed too fast. So I put it in again, double checking this time. But got in both times, I think. Should only get one promo code of course.

    • Kofi Williams

      I hit back after i submitted to check and all my info was correct.

      • Michael Bell

        Uh oh

  • GNexTilDeath?

    I was at a birthday lunch for an employee. I left the lunch, turned on the hotspot on my Gnex, and powered up the Chromebook in the truck. Got my code at 12:05. Let me get rid of my Gnex and keep unlimited data once and for all!

    • Guest

      Excellent job. What was your excuse when you re-joined the lunch? Diahrrhea?

      • GNexTilDeath

        I was at a mexican restaurant haha. Good one.

  • mcdonsco

    So I wasted Monday entirely trying to get this, today I got pulled away for about 7 min, come back and it’s GONE – WTF? I’m getting sick of this crap…F U Moto. And the worst part is, now I’m going to be bitter about it, further helping my day along…just irritated as hell with Moto right now.

    • Michael Bell

      You fail

      • mcdonsco

        you can do the same as moto buddy

        • Michael Bell

          Work always comes before electronics! What kind of employee are you sir?!

      • mcdonsco

        My other comment got moderated..You’re an Ahole

    • Hothfox

      What didn’t you understand about 12 EST and limited quantities?

      • mcdonsco

        F OFF

        • Hothfox

          Hi, welcome to a public forum on the Internet. You might want to get your blood pressure checked.

          • mcdonsco

            Why do you feel the need to be a dick is the REAL question here?

          • Hothfox

            Because you and 40% of the other people who didn’t get a code are being childish and acting like you are owed compensation because other people were there on time and got the deal first. I’m not the one using caps and expletives.

          • Hothfox

            Dinkus deleted his comment.

          • mcdonsco

            Get a life you LOW LIFE POS

          • mcdonsco

            Ever hear of venting, dick?

          • Hothfox

            Ever hear of anger management?

          • mcdonsco

            Seriously, someone vents in a post, and your response is to poke them with a stick? Why? Is that what you do for fun; just a dick by nature? Give it a rest…Lots of people were plenty irritated by this, why do you feel the need to poke a stick at those venting about it? Does it make you feel superior?

          • Hothfox

            Not really. Although it does intrigue me that you’re so bothered that I responded to your posts and you’ve resorted to name calling. It’s also intriguing that you’re handling “defeat” so poorly while many other people who couldn’t get a code today realize that they have another chance on Monday and don’t need to throw a fit over it.

          • mcdonsco

            Get a life

          • Hothfox

            I have one. I’m just on my lunch break at work right now and you were fun to get a rise out of.

        • techymexican

          good morning to you too!

    • NexusMan

      Why would you be irritated with Moto? Be irritated at the people who snapped up multiple codes, or be irritated at the person who pulled you away for about 7 minutes, or be irritated at yourself for allowing yourself to get pulled away for 7 minutes while the sale for the device you wanted was starting. I don’t get people who feel it’s ok to say FU to a company that is giving you MULTIPLE opportunities to save $150 off a device you want. Talk about ingratitude and lack of responsibility.

      • mcdonsco

        DUDE! It’s CALLED VENTING! GET OVER IT!

        • NexusMan

          And again, like I said the first time, direct your venting toward the appropriate people. If you want to vent, vent about yourself for missing the offer…but I do find it funny that someone (you) who’s been “venting” on this site all day, and continues to do so, is telling me to “get over it.” LOL!

      • mcdonsco

        DUDE! IT’S CALLED VENTING! GET OVER IT! What on Earth is wrong with you people? I REALLY don’t understand those that feel the need to poke sticks at someone that’s venting?

        • NexusMan

          LOL. Take you’re own advice….GET OVER IT! Lol.

  • crussell

    Anyone have the link to sell your contract? I have 2 unlimited lines and 2 2gb lines with VZW and I’m waving buh-bye…

  • enigmaco

    Sheer craziness on the site lol, got my code now trying to decide if I should go with at&t or t-mobile.

    • moelsen8

      there’s no real reason to get at&t over t-mobile

      • Hothfox

        Except if one of them has worse coverage in your area.

        • moelsen8

          t-mobile one is unlocked and can be used on at&t just fine. and it has unlockable bootloader, is unbranded, no extra bloatware. the only reasons i’ve heard of getting the xt1058 (at&t) over the xt1053 (t-mobile/dev edition) is that at&t has more LTE bands used outside of the US. t-mobile has everything at&t has as well as can get HSPA+ on t-mo non-refarmed areas.

          edit: i guess i’m referring to buying them outright–but i’m assuming this dude was as well since i don’t think you can get $150 off a contract price of $99 or whatever it is. obviously on contract you’d need to stick to whatever carrier you’re with.

          • Hothfox

            Oh, I thought you meant “get AT&T over T-Mobile” as in get them as your carrier, not as in get the specific device. My bad!

          • grumpyfuzz

            Did you pick up a T-Mobile one and put an AT&T sim card in it, working right out of the box? I’m just wanting to confirm if the T-Mobile one is actually sim unlocked, because I heard that it is not.

          • moelsen8

            no, i’ve had gsm developer editions. but they’re literally the same thing as the t-mo version. same model.. there’s no branding, t-mobile isn’t even selling it themselves. go on xda, there’s plenty of threads about this and people saying the t-mobile version is sim unlocked.

            this should get you started:
            http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2546466&highlight=sim+unlock

            edit: to clarify, people have asked motorola on the phone, and in some documentation it states that the tmo version is sim locked, but people on the forums have verified that it is not.

          • grumpyfuzz

            alright man, thanks for the info. appreciate it!

  • Severo Rivera

    If I had an extra code I’d just give it out for free to anyone

    • Har.Mar

      I’d charge $50
      You snooze, you lose

    • Michael Rhodes

      You, Sir, are a dick.

    • Matty P

      If you’re going to do that then why not make a version that’s pretty basic and just sell it online as new/unused for around full price?

    • techymexican

      i’ll sell mine for $39! 😛 my number is 555-777-7878

      • andres barroeta

        lol mine $38 what about that

        • techymexican

          i’ll post mine here on the website for free, like we all should, if we have extras 😛 we are the ones the had to suffer on Monday.

          • Cameron Horst

            as will I

          • Har.Mar

            Post the code publicly and whoever redeems it first get it.

      • still__ill

        Hey I thought you said your number was 555-777-7879….you sneaky……

    • moelsen8

      you’re a piece of sh*t

  • lye

    Damn it. Went so fast.

      Thats what she said

  • Kellin Brown
    • Sina

      you have another chance on monday

    • Ho.Haley

      Kellin, here’s an extra one I don’t need BQHTJ-PM8GF-6DHH7-K7F4X-KMF93

      • Kellin Brown

        Hey Haley, wanted to thank you for giving me one of your extra codes, it is appreciated. unfortunately its not valid and it looks like someone blasted the same code on the forum for everyone to use. thank anyway

  • DJVin

    Out already? Holy sh*t! I luckily checked the main site first and signed up for a code. Now I sit here waiting…

    • Severo Rivera

      Yeah I know, just patiently waiting.

  • Andrew Baylor

    If I order a verizon one, does it come with sim card?

    • Severo Rivera

      Not sure, probably not.

    • NickMotoX

      Yes it does

      • Severo Rivera

        Really?

        • NickMotoX

          Yeah it should. I know my Verizon one came with a nano sim in it.

          • Severo Rivera

            Well that’s good to know.

          • Andrew Baylor

            Sweet, and how did you activate it – I have verizon (monthly normal single person plan) with a GNex and just want this to become my new phone without affecting my 2014 discounted phone upgrade. thanks in advance

          • NickMotoX

            Just called up Verizon and told them I have a new phone and sim card and wanted to activate it. They did it, took all of like 5 mins.

          • Andrew Baylor

            Awesome, thanks man!

  • flosserelli

    This f*cking blows. I was at my computer all day Monday. Today I got pulled away 15 minutes before the hour and couldn’t get back until 15 minutes after, and they’re sold out. Grrrrrr

    • Severo Rivera

      What were you doing?

      • flosserelli

        My job. Real life gets in the way again :/

    • Michael Bell

      There it is! I knew one would be coming!

    • moelsen8

      block your schedule off from 11:30 until 12:30 this coming Monday and you’ll get a code. go take a walk and submit your email from your phone or something.

      • flosserelli

        I wish it was that easy. Oh well. If I get one Monday, great. If not, c’est la vie.

        • moelsen8

          hey, if you still want a code, let me know a way to contact you directly without exposing my email address on here.. maybe another site like xda or twitter or something. i have a code which i probably won’t use now, and wouldn’t mind seeing it go to another DL regular.. if they can be passed to others in the first place…..

          • flosserelli

            You’re awesome!
            If you still have it, send it to my username @live.com
            Thanks a million 🙂

          • moelsen8

            sure thing, check mail.

          • flosserelli

            Thanks, bro. I really appreciate it!

  • asdfasd

    If you don’t have your codes by now, you used the wrong link to register.

    • Severo Rivera

      Don’t think so.

    • Bryan Anderson

      I think your sweater is itchy because you seem bitchy…

    • Todd

      stop trolling

  • paretomill

    Two things I don’t understand:

    1. Why the last minute change on the method of purchase?
    2. Why give a 6 am EST when you could have registered before?

    Result: A LOT OF PEOPLE GOT SCREWED… AGAIN!

  • barrmy

    are the non-dev moto x unlocked for international sim use? ie. can i use a verizon moto x internationally with a int’l sim card without needing to unlock it?

    • Severo Rivera

      Not sure, I know with the gsm Dev edition you can do that.

    • anezarati

      no, it is my understanding that you will need verizon to unlock it. (but i dont know if you can even use the verizon version overseas)

      • moelsen8

        i think the whole point of verizon leaving the sim unlocked is to make it a global phone. i would bet it’s unlocked for international use.

  • Severo Rivera

    How do some people have there codes already?

    • discstu37

      I think people saying they have codes means they were able to enter an email. I don’t think anyone has proof of codes at this point. I did get an email about diapers though for my kid, which was fun when I was hoping it was the code 🙂

      • Severo Rivera

        Hahaha 🙂

    • Todd

      last ppl to register gets them first. first ppl to register gets them last.

      • Severo Rivera

        Wouldn’t that be something.

  • steveindajeep

    “Developer Editions are excluded this time around since you were actually able to buy them on Monday”…Im still laughing about this comment.

  • chris_johns

    anyone get their email yet?

    • Severo Rivera

      Nope

      • chris_johns

        ok…i just wont be able to relax until i get it lol moto better not f me again

        • Todd

          i thought you had a problem with your zip code?

          • Just a Guess

            If he has a code, I guess he can take his time working it out with customer service this time.

          • chris_johns

            I did…moto said they were working on it…they better not screw me ima call tom n make sure

  • Michael Rhodes

    “doubling the quantity of phones available as well” so from 50 to 100?

    • discstu37

      That’s what I’ve been saying. We never knew the original quantity, so doubling an unknown still equals unknown 🙂

    • Kofi Williams

      Well this was the first quantity and Monday is the second.

    • Bryan Anderson

      My guess is that the original amount was around 30000. To run all of the national ads and to have the website up it would have been silly to only have 100 or so available.

  • skimcpip

    Anyone know if the Verizon version purchased directly from Moto Maker will work on T-Mobile if I decide to switch providers? There is overlap of GSM bands and one LTE band but I don’t know if the Verizon version is sold SIM unlocked via Moto Maker like iPhones are if purchased full price from Apple. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Not Sure

      The LTE might work, but Verizon uses CDMA, not GSM. If it did work, I think it would be more an accident than anything; I don’t think the two versions use the same radios, but I could be wrong.

  • paretomill

    Fortunately, I registered in time. But what I don’t understand is this – Why would you say you are going to increase the supply and run out in 9 minutes? The developer edition was available for a lot longer. It’s just not reasonable. If you’re going to make a excuse that this time it was by registering and not the actual purchase… you should have known people would abuse the system… Finally, this last minute change in method of getting the deal is ridiculous.

    • Kofi Williams

      I registered about 3 or 4 minutes before noon so it’s hard to say how long they were open but obviously the demand from Monday carried over and probably had momentum. I guarantee next Monday will be worse.

      • TMAN213

        I also registered a couple minutes before 9PST

    • Michael Bell

      Maybe they only had a few thousand available for the sale price. They have every right to decide how many they want to sell at a discounted price and how many they can produce and ship in a timely manner.

  • Severo Rivera

    Patience people.

  • Todd

    f5ing my email now!

  • tech247

    Dead in 9 mins?? Jeezzz….

    • chris_johns

      really ?

  • cswin

    Has anyone used the Skip? I’m thinking about getting one with my order but not sure how well it works.

    • NickMotoX

      Works awesome I have one. I don’t know about you, but I need to pin lock my phone for work and using the Skip makes it that much quicker to unlock. The skip dots work awesome too. I use it everyday.

      • cswin

        Excellent. Guess I’ll get it with the 30% off.

  • delrayser

    See, all these “I registered two codes just in case” comments is why this new method sucks. People are hoarding them and depriving others of the ability to get a code. I got one – or at least I got to the page telling me I did – so I’m not personally bitter, I just think it’s not the best way to go about handing out these things.

    • Severo Rivera

      I know, I got only one too.

    • Hothfox

      Yeah – I registered successfully for ONE. I think people are just paranoid that somehow they’ll get screwed over after the fiasco on Monday.

    • Todd

      Happy Holidays! 🙂

    • delrayser

      And I hope for you two-code people’s sakes that Moto doesn’t have a way of enforcing their threat to cancel codes for people who do multiple registrations.

      • Matthew Dickinson

        Unless you genuinely need two phones, you know, for a husband and wife.

        • delrayser

          That’s an excellent point. There’s no way for Moto to distinguish between those situations, so I assume the two-coders will be okay. But who knows, I didn’t want to risk it.

          • Skittlez

            2 different emails. done

          • none

            mwahahahaha I got 7.

    • discstu37

      I’m assuming that’s why they said it can take up to 14 days to get a confirmation. They expire in a week, so the unfulfilled codes will get released to those who haven’t got a confirmation yet. It just means (I think) you might be waiting longer than you’d like.

    • KleenDroid

      I got 3 codes. However I will actually purchase 2 of them, one for my daughter and one for my wife. I did this because of wasting so much time on Monday. I wanted to make sure that I at least got two two of them so I did 3.

      I will gladly share my extra code if I get it for someone that didn’t get one.

      • sergio

        Could I get that extra code?

        • Mainstain

          BQHTJ-PM8GF-6DHH7-K7F4X-KMF93

          • Tim

            Doesn’t work

          • Valerie Rub

            it is same to like Windows.

        • Valerie Rub

          No need code for new model it is auto code accepted.

      • Stephen

        Do you think I could possibly get the other code? I just got out of class and noticed they’re already sold out :/

        • sergio

          SHUT IT FGT, IM GETTING IT

          • Stephen

            Its up to you KleenDroid,
            Does sergio deserve your promotion code?
            Or do I?

            P.S: Stick it up your bunghole sergio

          • Sergio

            I hope gee chooses me since I did all first. You just got out of class huh? Well I’m an underpaid public school teacher who couldn’t get to the computer because I was teaching this countries future. So shut it before I pee in your butt.

          • sergio

            Sorry for the misspellings. I’m still working with a thunderbolt that has a messed up screen. I’ll still jam your clam.

          • zakry obrien

            Hows that thunderbolt?

          • sergio

            Rooted and soon will be booted. Not as in operating but kicked to the curb… You know what I meant.

          • Stephen

            Ahhh a successful public school teacher.. How prestigious!
            I guess I should have specified which “class” I just got out of, MS 1020 (National Guard Military Police). I’m studying so I can protect your underpaid ass overseas. So, again, stick it up your bunghole, good sir

          • sergio

            Well you seem like a good dude, but I still have a big long middle finger pointing at you that you can dream about. I withdraw from the race. I just received an email from Motorola. Hopefully kleendroid chooses you not for your slurping abilities, but because you tried to swipe the code when you knew I replied first. Peace be with you on your voyage to the moto x. And like I said before, I’ll roast your meat curtains and serve them to you undercooked. Good day kind lint licker.

          • dennis laska

            “underpaid public school teacher”
            LOL
            Quit and get a better job then. if it sucks so much. But then you would have to work and not teach 🙂

      • Michael Rhodes

        Choose wisely young KleenDroid-San

        ps. I need one! haha

      • mcdonsco

        This is why so many that ALSO wasted so much time on Monday didn’t get a code. Wish I could have gotten one to make up for Monday, now I have to try AGAIN on Monday to get one and compete against a bunch of others who just have some sort of cosmic connection luck and will register for multiple codes again.

      • disastrousrainbow

        Why not use one code to buy the three? Motorola said that would be possible. Didn’t you read the FAQ? Oh, that’s right, most people didn’t.

        • Joe Cool

          “Can I buy multiple Moto X phones with this promotion?

          Technically, yes. But, each email address can be registered only once and a promotion code will only be valid on one device.

          You’re not a store. We do not authorize using the codes for commercial purposes. If we detect you are applying for multiple codes for resale, we will not provide a code and we will invalidate previously provided codes.”

          From the FAQ. One coupon only works on one device

          • disastrousrainbow

            Ah, I stand corrected then. I read it as yes, but only once will the promo code work.

          • Joe Cool

            I see where the confusion would come from. That was my concern as well until I found that in the FAQ. I was wanting one for me and one for my wife, so I had to try for two. Plus I have that 0% financing for 18 mos.

    • j

      YOU DON’T NEED MORE CODES THAN YOU WILL PURCHASE.

      THE CODE IS THE PURCHASE ESSENTIALLY IT GUARANTEES YOU A DEVICE.

      STOP BEING AHOLES EVERYONE.

      • mcdonsco

        I’m actually quite amazed how many aholes are commenting in here…lots of people that apparently like to poke sticks at others that are venting…Bunch of low lifes.

        • Jhon

          dude what information was on the form??

      • James

        what information was on the form?, if you could tell me it would be very helpful

      • Raven

        What is really sad is the over 50 discount codes that I currently see
        being auctioned on ebay.
        Anyone who got a code just to do that is
        really an ass.

    • jamdev12

      I was scared I wouldn’t get mine. I registered like at 9:02am, so felt disappointed that I had not received one and that many were already receiving them. I would have been pissed though and you are right, when you have people hording because they want to resell those for more on eBay, that sucks for the rest of us.

    • PhillipCun

      i got 3 codes… i’m purchasing 3. Sorry but I’m not hoarding. Me and my family need these phones and have been waiting for 3 months for it to drop.

      I also purchased a VZW DE on Monday that I’m selling at no profit to a fellow reddit user since I will be purchasing motomaker ones instead. Good deed done.

  • Calayna

    ARGH! Was running to my desk at work and missed it! Guess i’m stalking the website on Monday :/

  • Nee Austin

    Gee, having to enter something that requires no actual intent to purchase, and can enter unlimited e-mail addresses, and shocking it “sold out” in minutes. I’m sure everyone who got their code is going to buy one too. More likely they are going to sell them or give them away as blog contests (that’s the spirit Droid Life).

    And here I talked my mom into wanting a Moto X last night, and I’m about 60 seconds too late.

    • Hothfox

      I agree it was a disappointing outcome for some. If it makes you feel any better, I am 100% buying one with the one code I registered for.

      • Matthew Dickinson

        Same here, you still have Monday though.

    • Bryan Anderson

      I signed up with two email addresses because the page changed after I entered my information the first time. If I get two promo codes I am planning on posting the second one online at Droid Life.

      • Michael Rhodes

        I hope this is a post on DL, i need this phone so badly, my poor GNex is at its end of days.

  • barrmy

    if anyone is about to dump their droid maxx now that they got an X let me know and i may take it off your hands

    • mcdonsco

      If I can get a damn X I would!

    • Todd Bettenhausen

      I may be selling a MAXX because I have a DE coming.

      • barrmy

        dm me up on twitter (same name) with condition and price, thanks

  • Severo Rivera

    Anyone got a confirmation email from Motorola?

    • Jeff

      Some commenters below say they have.

  • paretomill

    still waiting for my email… am i the only one?

    • CCCO

      Down in the comments below, someone claims they have 2 codes already…I think troll

    • eddieg28sp

      Unless u have a time machine and have already waited hours. I’d suggest u keep waiting… We ALL are.

  • mcdonsco

    So the link to get the promo code (on Monday, whatever!) is just the motorola home page? http://www.motorola.com/us/home – ??? That doesn’t make sense?

    • Severo Rivera

      yes.

    • Cameron Horst

      i used the motorola.com/2dayholiday or whatever

      • Hothfox

        That didn’t work for a few minutes. I was F5-ing on it, and it wasn’t doing anything.

  • sirmeili

    I think it’s funny that using the link in the blog post directly from Motorola’s blog, that the page they said to go to NEVER had the link to enter. If my GF hadn’t been checking the main site, I might have missed it. How could Motorola really have screwed that one up?!?!

    • asdfasdfsad

      Their original link worked eventually.

      • sirmeili

        Ok.. I gave up after I got my code. I think it’s absolutely retarded though that they managed to screw that one up. Had I missed out because they couldn’t update the page they said to go to, I would be pissed..

        • Cameron Horst

          what is the right page?

          • sirmeili

            They posted the sign up link on their home page, but in their blog they put motorola.com/holiday2daysale , which they (apparently) didn’t update until later.

  • rthvk

    I think most people picked up multiple to make sure they got it. Hence the 9 minute sellout.

    Can just hear the Gnexes flying through the window.

    And yes, I picked two up too! 😀

  • Phobic

    Damn I got called away and these were gone 8 mins after noon. Guess I’ll have to camp out on Monday.

    • Mark

      I took a sick day from work to make sure that didn’t happen to me.

      • Hothfox

        I ignored a helpdesk call. WORTH IT!

    • Jaciel

      You should check DL when the first batch of codes go out because a lot of people registered for two codes just for security. Im sure they would be more than willing to give you their extra so you won’t have to wait until monday 🙂

      • Phobic

        I’d love that but given my luck with these things, I’m not getting my hopes up. 🙁

      • Shimamasu

        I really hope I get one with that or on Monday. I was so excited to order one for my wife today… My design is done just need the code……

  • So Much Less Stressful

    I have to say, getting a code like this was a lot less stressful than the previous process. Means I can actually put some thought into deciding how I want to customize my Moto X. 🙂

    I already bought a GSM Developer Edition on Monday, just to be on the safe side, but I’m planning on returning/selling it if I can get a customized Moto X after all. (I’m on T-Mobile, so I’m just looking for a good-looking phone at a good price, unlike those Verizon unlimited guys. 🙂 )

    Now to see if my code actually arrives in the e-mail. 🙂 I was worried about the “resell detection” caluse, so I only submitted once. If it doesn’t work this time, I guess I’ll be in line on Monday again… (I almost forgot to check around 9 AM PST today, since I figured I’d just stick with my Developer Edition after all…)

  • Trysta

    So is save a spot the same as registering? I got an email almost immediately that my Moto ID is set but I haven’t gotten a promo code (which I assume should come later?). Just want to make sure I’m not missing something.

    • Cameron Horst

      i screenshotted that page…. I WILL receive that promo

      • Hothfox

        Yup, I screenshotted mine too.

      • CCCO

        Good call, just did the same…The trust is low at this point!

      • Trysta

        ok just took a screen shot too. Glad I checked at exactly 12. And thanks Droid Life for having the info and staying on top of this deal!

    • Hothfox

      No – signing into or signing up for Motorola.com is not the same as registering for the promo code. If you didn’t fill out a form with your name, email, and phone number, and receive a confirmation web page that you made your reservation and would receive a code in a couple hours, you didn’t get the promo code.

  • Bryan Anderson

    Four hour wait to get an email…..well at least I can go do stuff while I wait for the email.

  • mcdonsco

    This just pisses me off

  • asdfasdsdaf

    Just got both of my emails. Time to customize.

    • Severo Rivera

      Really?

      • asdfadsasdf

        Yeah, but I was probably the first person to sign up.

  • Todd

    wheres my email????

  • anezarati

    i wonder if they are going to do anything with unused codes.

    • Severo Rivera

      Probably reuse them.

    • Cameron Horst

      i wonder if they have a buffer of codes to devices for people that dont use theirs, or if every code represents a device.

      • Speculating

        I don’t think there’s a one to one mapping. Basically, the code is like a coupon, and they’re limiting the number of coupons they’re printing. They’ll keep making phones to honor all the coupons, but if not all the coupons get redeemed, that’s just money they didn’t have to lose.

  • Michael Bell

    Waiting for the angry “WTF?! 8minutes?! I just logged on!! Screw you Motorola!!!!”

    • Bryan Anderson

      That may happen but at least they have another window to try again on Friday.

      • Just a small correction

        (Monday.)

        • ilovetechnology

          +1 for the username lol

  • paticao

    what a fiasco!!!

    • Hothfox

      HOW is this a fiasco. The website worked perfectly. I didn’t get any error pages due to traffic overload. You were told on Monday and again on Tuesday and Wednesday that it would start at 12:00 EST. If you weren’t there at 12:00 EST, that’s your fault. Heck, apparently if you were there at 12:06 EST you could still get one!

      • paticao

        I’m not buying this phone but im saying this cause i have a few friends who tried with no luck.
        Cant they see that if they sell this phone @349 this will fly off the shelves? maybe add 25-40 for motomaker?

  • How many do you think? @kellex:disqus – maybe we should do a poll to see how many of us signed up?

    • Severo Rivera

      yeah!

    • Cameron Horst

      Second^

  • melo

    anyone else ordering their phone as soon as they get the code.

    • Bryan Anderson

      I am going to wait about 5 minutes….then order it. Haha….no I am going to order right away. With a 14 day (or longer) wait I want to get my order in right away.

  • Guest

    Got one! 😀

  • NickMotoX

    I wonder how many they put aside? I am just curious

  • RichFromBX

    Registered – now i suppose we just wait for the code?

  • Severo Rivera

    damn that was quick.

  • ApplesNAndroids

    Got mine in too.

  • Iyvin Benjamin

    If anyone gets an extra code I would love to get one

  • itsacardigan

    I would assume that if you got the screen saying your code will be emailed in a couple hours…..that your good….right?

  • eddieg28sp

    And their GONE.
    Got mine in at 9:04 after refreshing a bit and nothing happening. LoL.

  • Michael Bell

    If Motorola just dropped the normal price to this sale price, it might sell more than a lot of other flagship devices.

    • eddieg28sp

      I’m thinking after the holidays they are gonna drop the price. Forever. Once the demand goes down a bit. Kinda dumb since the demand is really great now. Might not be as great later.

  • Andrew Osborn

    After waiting over 12 hours Monday, got my two codes so I can get my gf her Christmas present and myself one since I’m not sold on the Nexus 5.

    • discstu37

      Did you actually get the codes or just were able to enter your email address?

      • Andrew Osborn

        Sorry, entered my email address. I assume I’ll be getting the codes since I got a screen that said my code would be arriving in a few hours.

        • capecodcarl

          I wonder if they’re going to be scrubbing the request list before sending out the codes to eliminate multiple requests per IP address or something.

          • Waiting game

            Would suck for those behind some firewalls….don’t see that happening.

        • discstu37

          OK, just want to make sure I shouldn’t be nervous for no reason 🙂

  • weathermanJake

    Sold out in 8 minutes. Either they didn’t have as many phones as they would like you to believe, or there were a ton of gnex unlimited data dudes jumping on this. I go with the former.

    • As a soon to be former gnex unlimited data user who jumped all over this, I would have to concur with that.

  • Kane Stapler

    Suggestion to DL staff! – A place we can all share our extra codes we got (just in case) to other Droid-Life readers

  • melo

    anyone else put two email addresses just to be sure you got a code… lol

  • ScooberJake

    Sold out in 9 minutes according to the Moto twitter account. I got my email address in, now we’ll see if I get a promo code. Couldn’t get in right away, but eventually did.

  • Caveman

    10 minutes and already sold out?

  • Severo Rivera

    I hope i typed my email correctly.

    • Matty P

      Oh god why do you have to put that thoughts in our minds. Now we are all second guessing ourselves.

      • CCCO

        No kidding! Haha!

        • Matthew Dickinson

          My wife was concerned about it here too. Wait and see now.

    use the try this two link-it worked perfectly right away-thank you kellen,kellex b and a big hats off and kudos to Droid-LIfe

  • Randy

    9 minute sell out. WOW

  • Severo Rivera

    All them are gone

  • ilovetechnology

    I was really scared when the first time I loaded the page I got:

    We are currently experiencing high volumes.
    Please try again later.
    Thank you for you patience.

    (Yes, typo and all)

  • Joe Gugelman

    After waiting 10 hours on Monday, I used two different email accounts to be doubly sure. If you didn’t get a code, reply here and I’ll send you my (likely) extra one. Want a DL’er to get it.

    • BenG

      I also registered twice with same email because I wasn’t sure if first one went through If i get 2 I’d be happy to give the second away.

      • Har.Mar

        Can I buy multiple Moto X phones with this promotion?

        Technically, yes. But, each email address can be registered only once and a promotion code will only be valid on one device.

      • eddieg28sp

        You better hope you 2 attempts don’t cancel each other out. In the frequently asked Q’s. It stated one per email. And if ppl were caught trying to do it for resale they would cancel all.
        I hope u get ur 1. Pretty sure u won’t get 2. Not meant to scare u but different email address would have been smarter.

      • BrianT

        BenG, if you do get an extra code you’re giving away, I would really appreciate one! ~brianT

        • BenG

          No problem I’ll let you know if I get 2.

          • BrianT

            Sweet!

          • BenG

            Sorry looks like they just sent me the one promo code.

          • BrianT

            No worries, my dad just sent me one.

    • Well we put in for 3, so hopefully we get 3 and can give them all out. 🙂

      • Flat_Stanley

        Seriously? You don’t even want the devices and you still signed up for it? You realize this just makes it worse for the people who actually intend to buy the device for themselves, right?

        • aceavenge

          Settle Down. they will probably give them away.

          • Flat_Stanley

            Motorola was already giving them away.

    • Randy

      i got 2.

    • I put in for two of them just in case too.

    • Michael Rhodes

      I just want one 🙁 Im at the end of my poor Galaxy nexus, Cracked screen, broken power button and running CM 10.2, i still love it but like a really stupid old sick dog.

    • Tyler Davis

      I need a code!

    • fjohnston

      Would greatly appreciate a code from someone who got an extra. After 12 hours of fighting on Monday with Motorola after they cancelled my DE order. I missed today’s deal because of an exam.

  • Jeff Tycz

    and its sold out…

    • Michael Bell

      8 minutes?

  • avs

    Now sold out! Sorry if you couldn’t register

    • Matt K

      that lasted a whole 8 minutes…

      • gtg465x

        About 11 minutes actually. Started a few before the hour.

  • Matt K

    and they’re all gone

  • Michael Bell

    Wonder what the delivery time will be, might order a GSM version. I ordered a VZW Moto Maker on Monday and its already shipped to be here today! Wasnt expecting it till Friday

  • Derp

    Alrighty! My girlfriend, mother, coworker, and I all got through! Hopefully this works this time, honestly though I hope Motorola sees how excited people are for the Moto X at this price point and takes that to heart.

  • lembowski

    So if I’m reading everything right I can buy the T-Mobile Moto X that is unbranded/no bloat and has all the AT&T bands for 3G and Lte. Will I need to do anything special with the phone to make it work on AT&T post paid plan? Change any settings? I like the idea of no AT&T bloat and no carrier logo on the rear.

    • NickMotoX

      I think you just need to unlock it?

      • lembowski

        I have read that it comes sim unlocked from Moto.

    • entertainmentopia

      I’m doing the same thing so hopefully its pretty straight forward, plus I want the ability to go between TMo and AT&T Pre-Paid in six months if my first choice is fubar.

        Kinda what I am looking at. I was thinking about moving to pre-paid once my contract is up and want all the bands I can get for the GSM options.

        • entertainmentopia

          I read in the massive MotoFail Monday thread this come up and it was suggested that the TMo version would work just fine, if you go the other direction the AT&T version only has bands for TMo’s refarmed spectrum for LTE otherwise you get stuck on EDGE.

          • lembowski

            Cool, I will pick up the Olive/Orange/Black T-Mobile X once my email code arrives.

  • Severo Rivera

    I was on the wrong part of the site again, so I was worried like hell 🙁

  • adbFreedom

    Got a spot, now to email Dennis a rant on how I need to be able to use it for a dev edition because a phone with a locked bootloader from a Google company is not a phone at all!

  • Skittlez

    Done. Will receive in the next few hours.

  • Hothfox

    I assume if I got “We’ve received your registration… ” that means I got one?

    • Severo Rivera

      yep!

      • Hothfox

        YIPPEE!

    • Nick24

      I sure hope so…

  • Todd

    done!

  • robertom

    Registered !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jbreezy

    too bad DL didn’t have the right link…

    • Too bad that’s the link Motorola told us in their official post to go to.

      • Roberto M

        Not sure why people are complaining, link worked like a charm for me. Thanks Kellex, got registered and am waiting for my email.

    • ilovetechnology

      IT’s not DL’s fault, it’s Moto’s fault for not posting the deal on the page about the deal…how stupid of them.

      • Matthew Dickinson

        Or a way to try and buffer the onslaught of request.

  • triumphtriple

    Make sure to go to Motorola’s HOME SITE!
    NOT the Holiday 2 Day Sale site!

  • Scott Sochacki

    It worked!!!

  • dazz1996

    all done that was easy

  • UPDATED LINKS. Thanks Moto, for providing the wrong link last night and then switching it up today.

    • Randy

      Way to stay on top of things.

      • Hothfox

        To be fair, Motorola themselves led us to believe that the link DL posted was where to go. I only figured it out because I went to my Twitter stream at 12:01 EST when the page wasn’t refreshed with a registration form.

    • Kane Stapler

      Kellen if I would have missed it because I was on your first link.. You’d be in trouble

    • triumphtriple

      I had the same link you guys had. I think Moto changed it in their blog post…
      I don’t blame you!

    • avs

      Share your Moto X design – seems like an apt topic for next week. What say?

    • I used the link that you guys had with the story yesterday and it worked fine for me today.

    • evltwn

      If you registered and saw a confirmation screen, no worries — your code will be emailed today. For more visit: http://t.co/96F4y0PpyZ— Motorola Support (@MotorolaSupport) December 4, 2013

      • trlovejoy

        No worries – yeah, right. Anyone actually gotten a code?

        • evltwn

          Got my code, and have already ordered my phone.

  • Aaron

    Got mine!

  • Tony Byatt

    Kellen…you let us down with that link… :-p

    • Blame Motorola. That’s the link they posted in their official post about the deal.

      • Tony Byatt

        I know, just joking…

  • TMAN213

    Registered. Let’s see what happens.

  • Ashish Raj

    Hey MOTOROLANS… It’s past noon!!! .. comon man… not again! 🙁

    • Scott Miller

      go to motorola.com main page

      • Ashish Raj

        Got it.. thanks.

  • Dan Burkes

    Woo. That was painless. Great way to fix things moto. Now give me a $25 play card for not doing this yesterday.

    • NorCalDroid

      Greedy much?! They made it right today. They don’t have to do anything else.

      • Dan Burkes

        You were there with us yesterday. I spent 12 hours hitting F5. They owe most of us a little for that snafu.

        • sirmipsalot

          No, they owe you precisely nothing. Entitlement much?

    • sc0rch3d

      i got a $10 card for using moto maker (albeit it was yesterday on the non-promo deals)

  • RFC2881

    Got registered!!!!!

  • Rocky Calabrese

    I’m in! 🙂

  • Severo Rivera

    got it!!!

  • jnt

    yippee – we’ll see how long the email takes

    • jt O’Brien

      The emails will rollout in batches probably. Only enough people that motomaker can handle at a time.

      • jnt

        Hopefully they did more back-end work as well – because you know the second that first batch goes out, they’ll (almost) all be on the site…

  • hoosiercub88

    reserved 🙂

  • evltwn

    Done!

  • mackjao

    done

  • CCCO

    It’s on the main site, not the link in the article!!!

    • ilovetechnology

      So freaking annoying…

      • CCCO

        Those idiots!

    • adbFreedom

      The link in the article worked for me

      • It has been fixed. Motorola gave us the wrong link initially and then used a different one today. Both links up there should work now.

        • CCCO

          When I refer to them being “idiots” I meant Motorola, not you guys! Just to clarify…

      • ilovetechnology

        They changed it very quickly after it went live to point to the right place.

        • Raven

          Yeah, about 4 minutes into the sale when it was already about half over. I got the correct link from someone posting in the comments. I need to go back and +1 him, lol.

  • Dan Burkes

    Registered!

  • NorCalDroid
  • NorCalDroid

  • NorCalDroid

    got it!!!!!

  • Severo Rivera

    not live here, what website.

  • book’em_dan-o

    My contract is up in March and I’m still grandfathered on unlimited data with Verizon…any reason to not jump on this deal? Maybe a phone better than the X will be released by then, or the price will drop? Just looking for opinions!

    • strikeir13

      off contract? no, nothing better will be released before christmas, and if you don’t like any other options currently on verizon (One, GS4, G2), the X is as good as it gets. I’ve had all those and I like the stock feel, quick camera, and other moto additions more than their crappy skins, etc. /opinion

      • book’em_dan-o

        Appreciate the response! Registered for a code, so I’ve got a little extra time to decide.

    • onDroid

      Just register. That will give you a week to decide. But yes, you should jump on it.

  • Col_Angus
  • Kofi Williams

    just registered 3 mins before noon

  • Nick24

    got registered!! woooo!!

  • Bradley Michael

    live!!!

  • Col_Angus

    It’s live!

    it’s live

  • Randy

  • Col_Angus

    Warming up the F5 key…

  • Dan Burkes

    Just remember you have a week to use the code. Let’s not all try and buy the phone at the first second you have the code.

    • Severo Rivera

      but, I want to 🙁

    • Nick24

      Yeah exactly. Fortunately my GNex works fine so I’m in no rush, but I still will have it ordered by tomorrow I hope (assuming I get a code)

    • hoosiercub88

      I will be, I have things to do today that don’t involve waiting around on Moto.

  • Severo Rivera

    I wonder how long it’s going to take for the code to reach everyone.

    • Todd

      not till 12am

    • ilovetechnology

      I’d bet they are staggering the emails for the codes to distribute the load on the site. So some people probably won’t get theirs for several hours.

  • Randy

    lets break their site again. be funny

  • Dan Burkes

    The best thing is – this was my suggestion at about 10am yesterday…

  • jt O’Brien

    Did they honestly empty my cart…AGAIN

    • Randy

      i saved my design. i was thinking ahead.

      • jt O’Brien

        Saving my design does nothing on my account for some reason. It hasn’t for weeks and it still doesn’t work now.

    • Nick24

      Haha save your design. Plus, who cares, a code is a code. I just want the code then there’s no rush or worry.

      • capecodcarl

        Exactly. The whole point is to not crash MotoMaker. You have an entire week to build and customize your phone once you get your code so there’s no need to rush out and try to use MotoMaker immediately.

  • Severo Rivera

    7 minutes left.

  • chris_johns

    i hope that there arent 100129859018912 people waiting to press refresh n ima be doing this for 20 min at work trying just to get a damn code

    • Dan Burkes

      I’d rather spend 20 minutes than 12 hours…

    • Randy

      ive been hitting refresh for 20 minutes already

  • Severo Rivera

    Really hope there ins’t any major problems.

  • trixnkix637

    Any know how to order an off contract Moto X off Motomaker? Every time I try to upgrade my line & keep my existing plan (grandfathered unlimited VZW), when I go to check out it still gives me the subsidized price.

    • Dan Burkes

      There’s a tab that says no contract

      • trixnkix637

        Just noticed it! Thank you!!

    • hoosiercub88

      You specify no contract.

      • trixnkix637

        HA! Genius. Must’ve been in such a rush before that I never paid attention. Thank you!

    • Randy

      learn how to read directions.

      • trixnkix637

        Please be kind, rewind. Thanks for not helping though.

  • Nick24

    I really just want to have this be quick and mostly-painless. I have things to do today!

  • Dan Burkes

    I broke my Gnex last week (cracked screen) and was going to buy this full price. As I was reading the review on here (again) the post popped up for the $150.

  • willyd

    its about to go down… round 2 here we come!!!

  • dkrider4r

    wonder what the chances of this site crashing today are

    • hoosiercub88

      The force is strong with this one.

  • Cory Pitkavish

    i nneeeeed this my brother is still on the droid x 2!

  • Randy

    Get your F5’s ready

  • Fuzz427

    Let us hope and pray that things go much smoother today-

  • Severo Rivera

    Who’s ready?

  • Ian

    “…buy* a Moto X….”

  • jrakoske

    this phone is garbage, I dont really see the hype. it could be free off contract but this phone still feels cheap in hand.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      You don’t have to see the hype, it’s okay to not like a phone.

      • jrakoske

        your right! so many other phones out there that are better but if you want the cheap walmart phone submit your email so moto can sell it and make money.. man remember when Moto made good products

        • hoosiercub88

          The only thing I remember Moto making over the past few years was garbage with awful software on it. Everything post OG DROID and Pre-Google Takeover was trash.

          • jrakoske

            OG droid was great quality but the Razr was crap and a bunch of others. there tablets sucked as well. but my OG droid was by far my fav

          • jnt

            so what DO you have or like??

    • hoosiercub88

      I feel like you haven’t held one.

      • Dan Burkes

        The only thing he’s been holding has a “felshy” feel to it.

        • hoosiercub88

          I would upvote you, but I cannot overlook that misspelling, sorry.

          Since holding my brother’s Moto X a few weeks ago and playing around with it, I feel like my Note II is very cheap feeling.

        • jrakoske

          that would be your moms tit ooohhhh

          • Dan Burkes

            Have those all you want… I’m pretty sure no-one else does.

      • jrakoske

        that i have , and then i put it down disappointed in the device

        • hoosiercub88

          Then you should probably go buy an iPhone, because that’s the only better build quality you’re going to find made with “luxury” materials.

          • jrakoske

            iphone sucks android is the only thing i buy. just saying this device is way over hyped and not really worth the price.. you that buy will all see in a few months …Rant over

    • Severo Rivera

      You shouldn’t judge so quickly.

    • Ashish Raj

      Glad that you feel that way. 1 less person to compete for the codes. ;D

      **Me goes back to smashing F5 on the Moto X registration page**

  • Cory Pitkavish

    i nnneeeeedddd this my brother is still on a droid x 2!

  • Nick24

    I am crossing my fingers. Monday was awful.

  • sc0rch3d

    They re-enabled MotoMaker yesterday for the standard price with 2 year renewal. That was good enough for me. I’m not leaving ATT anytime soon and I can sell my current phone for enough to pay of the cost + accessories + upgrade fee. Phone arrives soon. 🙂 Also Moto and ATT Support told me that I have 30 days to decide whether I like it or not (whether it’s customized or not).

    My golden rule in buying phones is to ensure zero net debt.

    • hoosiercub88

      I unfortunately don’t have an upgrade, so I have to deal with off-contract only since I’m clinging to unlimited with Verizon.

      • sc0rch3d

        I was clinging to that with Verizon several years back and kept finding ways to upgrade without losing the plan. However, VZW coverage blows in my area and at work in the building. I also found that I’m on the phone a LOT less now being married with kids than I was living the single life. 6GB family plan is more than enough for my current habits.

  • Jason M. Kosmiski

    Let the games begin!

  • Dan Burkes

    Am I just an idiot, but where do you register???

    • CCCO

      Link as at the bottom of the article. The registration doesn’t open for another 15 minutes so everyone is assuming the Moto page will update with some sort of email entry system or something. I predict madness again

      • Dan Burkes

        ok – that’s what I was curious about. I didn’t want it to be a separate page or something that I wasn’t finding.

  • Jeff Tycz

    even though they are sold out I am really disappointed the dev editions are not included in this

    • That’s one of the bigger reasons I wasn’t really paying attention this morning. I’ll try again next time, but unless they change it I can’t really say I will go for it.

  • CCCO

    Grrreeeaattt…you enter your email and hope you win the lottery. At least that’s my take on it. Bah!

  • Gentlemen… start your comments!

    • Severo Rivera

      Probably, stupid bastards.

    • capecodcarl

      I’m pretty sure we can guarantee that’ll happen unless they’re smart enough and put in some kind of restriction on how many coupons per IP address you can request. Otherwise the eBayers will just use a couple dozen e-mail accounts (or more) and scarf these up in the first 15 minutes once they write a quick script to submit coupon requests.

    • ilovetechnology

      Oh dang…this didn’t even occur to me. Now I wish Moto made you log in with an account to tie the discount to that account.
