Verizon finally gets Moto X Pure Edition activations working right

By Stephen Schenck September 17, 2015, 5:59 pm

The Moto X Pure Edition was supposed to be this great example of a carrier-agnostic phone, which the US smartphone market sees far too little of. Pick up a custom-designed Moto X Pure Edition from Motorola, and you’re free to go with the carrier of your choice, popping in the appropriate SIM and activating the handset on your preferred network. At least, that’s the way things are supposed to work, but as we shared with you just the other day, things haven’t been going so smoothly everywhere, and especially at Verizon, Moto X Pure Edition owners found themselves jumping through hoops in an effort to get their phones working. While that has already caused a lot of headaches, we’ve got some good news for you today, with word that the Verizon Moto X Pure Edition activation issue has been resolved.


While neither Verizon nor Motorola never officially confirmed the precise nature of the problem, that carrier had previously acknowledged its existence, and revealed plans to get things working by the end of the week.

We’re still one day ahead of that deadline, but Verizon reports that everything’s already working, and new Moto X Pure Edition owners should have no problems getting their phones set up with the carrier’s network.
