    Sometimes I see photos of someone's Moto X and it's cool to read their signature/engraving on the back on the phone.

    Would love to read what others have chosen, if any.

    I just have my name on mine. That's something I know I won't get tired of.

    I don't sell my phones, so that won't be an issue down the line.

    Mine says: Force Fate - Believe.

    To me they are powerful words that make me want to take action towards my goals and dreams. Believing in yourself is very important and it's nice to glance at my phone after I get off the ice or finish training to see a positive reminder ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜

    I thought a lot about what to have engraved on mine and I ended up with nothing. I was impatient and didn't want it to take longer to be built. I kind of wished I had something engraved after the phone came but now I don't even think about it... I look at the front of my phone, not the back. When I was thinking about it though I was going for inspirational or motivational. Was hard to find something that would fit that I liked and wasn't overly clich.

    Mine only took four business days from design to being in my hand, including the delay for weather. It was originally only going to take two.

    Well my assumption was that with the sale that anything with engraving would possibly take longer. It was just a guess, had no information to back that up. But had I kept thinking about what to put on the back I might have ordered it 6 hours or even a day or 2 later and it would have taken longer because of that.

    I'm really tempted. I wouldn't want to do my name but more of a phrase or saying even something in another language like "Carpe Diem" or "Memento Mori". I think it would be cool to have either a cool saying or phrase on the back of the moto x but having it an another language is even better. Although maybe memento mori isn't the best one. It was just an example. I think if you have a saying or phrase too even if you attempt to sell it one day it would have more value then just saying your name or something random.

    That being said the one I'm wanting to do is Olive Back, White Front, Silver Accents. Something olive or green related? I'm just undecided on engraving. I've probably visited the moto maker site every day for the past two weeks at least I finally got my colors done. I just want order the phone already.

    Just curious though is anyone worried about selling the phone later down the line if they engrave it?

    Nope. I've never sold a phone. We just keep them in the family and pass them down or keep as back up.

    I'm going to get "Miss you Rheese!" on mine. He's my son that passed away.

    There's a thread over at xda for that. It requires root, an app, and a locked (NOT unlocked) bootloader.

    Damn. I didn't think about that, and I do sell my phones if they have decent value. Drat. Lol.

    You can't change it but you can remove it without root if you factory reset your phone.

    I was told by Motorola at one point that they were working on an OTA patch to make this an option but who knows. I've been told a lot of things by their CSR that corporate has then denied.

    Mine is: Climb On!

    I love climbing, and that's one of the phrases we say when we climb with rope. I didn't put anything on my startup screen since I rarely turn off or reboot my phone.

    I was thinking about engraving "Who is John Galt" on the back but ended up with it blank. If you know the phrase "Who is John Galt" you'll probably like it. If you don't know the phrase, it'll make no sense, but it's kind of a philisophical thing, at least for me.

    Ended with it blank as I didn't want to hurt resale value but my startup screen says "I am John Galt."

    My wife's has her name on it. Both of mine just say "Moto X" and I'm good with that. I thought it would be a good way to label the phone for people who want to look at it plus it would be easier to sell to another party if I became so inclined. And it just looks dang good.
