Moto Maker goes live for T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon, finally brings back custom messages


Last week, rumors were flying left and right about big changes coming to the Moto Maker custom site for Moto X design. Were those wooden back options finally about to become available? Would carriers beyond just AT&T be able to get in on the custom design action? We heard T-Mobile might get access last Friday, but that didn’t come to pass. It turns out all we needed was a little patience, and now the Moto Maker is available for all four major US carriers.

Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile – all three join AT&T in the custom Moto X club. That’s fantastic to see happen, even if it took this long, and the handset’s price has fallen to just about $100 on contract.

For now, there are still no wood options to be seen, though we do get one treat: the custom messages you could have printed on the back of the phone – the same ones that were only available oh-so-briefly before Motorola pulled the plug – are back. Sure, it’s still not proper engraving, and threatens to kill your resale value worse than even a custom color scheme, but that’s your call – and thankfully one you’re finally able to start making for yourself.
