    I need some help here. I want to make sure this will work before I go ahead and spend my money. I have an upgrade available on Sprint. I plan on getting a Moto X right after New Years but I want to make sure it will all work out otherwise I will begin to look for a different phone. Sprint only offers the 16gb version in store and online but if I purchase the Moto X through Moto Maker then I have the option of upgrading the memory to 32gb for an additional $50. Sounds good to me. Will this still work on Sprint? Will I still get my upgrade discount (basically, would I still be able to purchase the phone at the $149 on contract price point or is it more)? Has anyone done this already or had any issues with this? I think I saw somewhere that someone may have had an activation problem when getting the 32gb version so I just want to make sure this is all feasible.

    Thanks for any and all help with this!

    Well I get that I can buy it and know where to select the option, but are you saying that the 32gb one will still work with sprint? Have you purchased a 32 gb one for sprint?

    I read somewhere that the 32gb wasn't working on Sprint either. I'm in the same boat as you, I have an upgrade for my phone through sprint and wanted to get the 32gb. But I believe I also saw somewhere that said the 32gb is now working on Sprint.

    Well that is the beginning of getting some good news. I would still like a firm answer though...

    Have you tried calling Motorola and asking them. Just a thought.

    Good idea...except the thought of waiting on hold just to talk to a company that is in the business of selling handsets gets on my nerves...I guess you can say that I am a pessimist and don't trust them or the answer that they may give me lol

    This is the entire reason I am reaching out to the AC community...I'm sure someone has done this before and can help someone else out or has had issues and can give the rest of us the knowledge that we are looking for.

    I can wait for it...

    do the online chat; I haven't waited very long when I did chat and you can take screen shots of the answer.

    Why wouldn't it work with Sprint? Moto maker sells the 32gb version for sprint.

    So you're saying you think they might lie to you despite the fact that it'd be pointless to do so because then you could just send back the device and they'd lose a customer?

    And that makes sense to you?

    That's what I thought as well but it doesn't hurt to make sure right? Measure twice cut once

    Ok funny thing just happened...tried the chat, was told that the 32 gb will work on Sprint. Great.

    Then I asked about pricing...when I asked to confirm that with my upgrade I could get one on contract for $149 they had problems answering the question and it appeared like they didn't even know they sold them for $149...best answer I got was $599.99 When I pressed some more they thought I was talking about the $150 discount. Still wrong. When pressed more they gave up and disconnected after giving me a phone number.

    How can I trust the first answer if they have no clue about the second answer?? I'm just gonna have to do it I guess. I wish there was someone in this community that has experienced this already that could give some insight...maybe someone will know tomorrow I'll stick around and wait some more I guess.

    Thanks everyone so far!

    People have reported of having problems with activating the 32gb on Sprints network. Like I said before, I believe that this issue has been fixed.

    For the OP, you could call Sprint. I don't know I haven't done that yet. Haha

    I bought a 32GB Moto X through moto maker a few weeks ago and using it on Sprint. I did have some trouble activating it but took it to a Sprint store and they got it sorted out.

    YES!! Thank you very much!! That's what I wanted to know *Happy Dance*

    Quick question for you now...did you buy it outright off contract or did you buy it on contract as a new customer or an upgrade?

    One problem is if you are on a SERO plan, as motomaker is using the best buy ordering system, and can't access "employee accounts"

    I am typing this on a 32GBP Moto X on Sprint. I also had a little trouble activating it, but a phone call to Motorola on Thanksgiving day sorted it out, and it's worked fine since. Yeah, it was the regular price plus $50 for the extra ram, and you can customize it. You can't get a developer edition on Sprint, but that seems to be the only missing piece.

    I believe the Sprint bootloader is unlockable like the DE.

    I believe it can be unlocked, but you have to give up your warrantee.
