Certified Moto X is available for $199.99 for Verizon Prepaid. It is factory unlocked and will work with T-Mobile and AT&T at HSPA + speeds no LTE. You can use the phone with Verizon if you choose

Don't forget FW CashBack. I believe you have to sign up for 1 month service upfront. I was able to cancel my service after 5 days but kept the phone. YMMV.

In the meantime, the Moto G gets a $20 price drop at Amazon. It's now $179, or $199 with LTE.

Supposedly the successor will be announced tomorrow

Moto G2 is coming tomorrow.

Best phone I've ever owned. I'll never go back to a Samsung device. Hopefully Lenovo can keep up the Moto X quality.

This phone is world unlocked for the SIM. Can someone who owns this ph ans the following question.
I'm in U.S. and want to use this phone for PagePlus (voice/text/3g data) and also use the SIM slot for H2O (AT&T) for voice/text only. I don't want to go with GSM and use a dual SIM adapter for 2 numbers.

rated:
Page Plus does not yet support Verizon LTE phones. You have to hack them into 3G / CDMA phones. PP expects to support 4g phones around end of year.

rated:
Also no (modern) Verizon phones allow using the CDMA side for voice and the SIM slot for a GSM spare line. You have to SIM swap or use two devices (as I do).

Can this phone be activated with Republic Wireless?

  No. RW uses special programming.

PP is going to get LTE starting October. Perfect time to buy this phone and switch to PP when it gets LTE

  I would be pleasantly surprised if PP allows this phone, but I am doubtful that they will. Thus far, PagePlus has not allowed Verizon Prepaid phones to be activated on their network. Also, their 4G is not universal across their plans. It only applies to their monthly plans of $29.95 or more.

In any case, this is a good deal.

rated:
PP will only allow this phone if it has been activated on Prepaid Verizon for 6 months.

Very tempted to upgrade my verizon Galaxy Nexus on the unlimited plan. Reviews make it sound like it's not that huge of a difference though - even though it's a few years newer. Runs kitkat, but gnex does that with cyanogenmod. Maybe I should wait. Do'h! Too many good deals on this site. Must stay strong...

  Buy it now and use it on Verizon for 6 months and swtich to PP

rated:
I expect there will not be a six month wait for Verizon LTE prepaid phones on PagePlus LTE.

Reason being, Verizon agreed not to lock/restrict the use of LTE device in order to license Band 13 from the FCC. Today you can take a Galaxy S III prepaid and use it immediately on a Verizon postpay account. I see no reason why PagePlus will be different.

Of course, Verizon could pull anything, won't know until we activate the first device in the field.

rated:
you might be on to something.  I purchased a used Moto X in July that was used on the Verizon Prepaid side in May.  I called Verizon postpaid in August and I was told that the phone was free to be activated with them.  Therefore, it should clear to activate on PagePlus.

rated:
Can I purchase this and after the month is over use it on verizon with my unlimited data plan?

rated:
You might be able to use the phone without waiting the month.  Not sure, but I do not believe the salespeople in the store are going to be very helpful and answer that question honestly.

op, any further details on how you canceled? just ordered online, activated when you received it, then called in five days later and they refunded the pro-rated portion of the $45 and let you keep the phone, or? thanks!

  Yup! They first said I needed to return the phone and I said I paid full price. Money returned to my cc no questions asked

lovely, i might try this then, thanks!  i'm in sudden need of a temporary replacement/backup phone, as my xperia zl had a magically known problem and died, and is now pending repair and amex extended warranty coverage.

Sorry to revive a thread, but just wanted more detail about getting the $45 charge taken off (or at least a prorated amount off).  I'll buy this phone for my current contract plan if I can avoid paying the $45. 

Desivibe, what exactly did you say?  I have a feeling I won't have as much luck.  Also, did you activate it as a prepaid phone, or on a contract at first?

Impasse, were you able to get the $45 taken off?

Thnaks in advance.

yessir; i got the gs4 in white rather than the x (expandable sim, etc.).  put the sim in, made a few calls and whatnot, then swapped to my T-Mobile sim.  called a few days later, she asked for a pin i didn't have, so then she verified by asking for two of the numbers i called on it.  i explained i bought it to try their service, decided it wasn't for me, and would like to cancel the rest of the month.  rep then explained they don't do prorated refunds for prepaid, which i countered made little sense, as if i had auto-renewal/payments on and i tried to cancel the next day, they would tell me that i was simply out of luck, and i'd have to "use" the remaining time?

she seemed to agree this made no sense, then put me on hold for a bit, and came back and explained there was some request for credit she could put through for me, and that i'd hear back within ten business days with the result.  i was incredulous at my chances after this, but about a week later i was surprised to see the full amount credited back to my original card.

also my original xperia zl was repaired and fully covered by amex, too   but they messed up the rubber gasket/seal around the back, and now it makes my headphone jack really tight, so we'll see if it holds up.  but so far, so good!

Also, is this phone somehow locked out of LTE completely?  or only on AT&T and TMobile because the network is different.  Wondering if the firmware will let it do LTE on Verizon Postpaid.
