I’m pretty sure this device will fly off the shelves when Moto Maker is offered to the other carriers. I’m just curious though about all the people who get a black or white Moto X before Moto Maker is available.
Do you think Motorola/The Carriers will give like a discount or trade-in program for people who bought a black or white X at launch and now want a custom X??
I can’t wait to check out this phone and if I like it I’m probably going to get a black one because I don’t think my GNex will make it until the exclusive with AT&T is over.
So I was wondering if you think Motorola would let me trade-in my black X for a custom one?? Maybe pay a small fee, like $ 50 or something, totally fine with me. I’m thinking it’s not gonna happen though.
It’s a nice idea. Actually, it’s a great idea. That could help create a cheaper, “refurbished” market. But these are the U.S. carriers we’re talking about, where nice ideas that could actually help us as paying customers tend to die.
So, you’ve got two options: Patience — difficult, we completely understand — or hope you can get a good resale price on your black or white Moto X.
