    Joe, I'm currently under contract with the original moto x, ordered in Feb 2014, would I be allowed to get the Turbo on Edge?

    The release stated if you upgraded prior to July 2014, you could do that to get the turbo.

    You qualify for early edge as long as you pass the credit/on time payment process.

    Anyone who hasn't upgraded after July 1st can do early edge upon approval.

    So far the pictures i have taken are coming out better than expected. I say that, Because Motorola can never get this part right. Unfortunately i can't show the samples, Because its with a demo unit and i am not allowed to post from them. it's a job security thing...

    This i can say, I came from a Moto X 14, G3 & M8 and it's on par with all of them and definitely better than any Moto phone to date.
    Wow, if it takes as good of pics as the G3 I'll be thrilled. I don't know why they can't seem to get a decent camera in their phones when everyone else somehow does.

    So here's my situation:

    I'm on a solo plan Loyalty Plan for $60 per month. I upgraded to an S5 in April of 2014 on a 2 year contract. If I go in tomorrow I can use Edge and get the $60 a month Edge plan even though I'm under contract? So my bill would then include a $27 per month or so charge for the Droid? I assume I'd have to trade in my S5 or is that not true since I'm new to Edge?

    Credits not an issue and I've been a Verizon customer since 2008 and never missed a payment.

    Joe,

    2 Questions

    If I am buying the phone outright can I still get that 100 discount?

    If I am buying the phone outright will I still get the free screen replacement?

    Thank you very much for the info you have given us.

    I did a quick online chat with Verizon and got the answer I wanted (yes), but I'm still weary about going in-store tomorrow.

    I bought a Moto X through a retail store to use on Moto Maker. I designed the phone and received it on 10/17. Of course, right after I ordered it, the Droid Turbo was leaked. Now having tried the Moto X (fantastic device), I need more battery to get through the day with my work. So my question is; is Verizon going to give me a hard time about exchanging a phone that I bought through the store, but "redeemed" my PIN through Moto Maker?

    Thanks in advance!
    I bought a Moto X through Big Red and received a PIN code. The product arrived on 10/23 and within a couple of days, I knew it was not going to work out. On Saturday, I called Motorola to get the return processed. Motorola received the device on Monday.

    Overall, its been a headache dealing with Motorola and Verizon. Motorola does not understand the process of getting the PIN Code from Verizon and that entire process. Verizon does not understand why the product has to be shipped back to Motorola. For me, its been 3 days since the product was returned back to Motorola and Verizon does not have the return recorded in their system. Make sure you stay on top of it. My account is all screwed up and I am hoping to be able to be able to go out and buy a new device by this weekend. Each time I talk to Big Red, I have to go straight to a supervisor as they really do not know what I am talking about.

    I will never do this Motomaker thingy again. If I buy a phone from an outside supplier, I will get an unlocked version and order it directly.

    Sorry just my 2 cents worth on this one.

    Are you able to disable stock apps like VZ Navigator from the Apps menu?

    And thanks for giving us some of your time. I am really looking forward to this phone. Might have to try and take a break at work tomorrow and go grab a 64GB before I ever even hold it in my hand.

    Hmm does that just mean no current past due balance?

    Thanks for all your help and information!

    Not Joe but the one I handled today did not. IIRC, just a nice "Droid" badge on the 32MB & (I think) that, plus a "64GB" addition on the special edition.

    If you qualify for Edge which you do meet the guidelines, You would have to give in your currect phone and yes it would add $27/month to your bill. The only way you don't have to trade in your phone for edge is if you are out of contract.

    Early Edge= Customers are currently under contact, But can trade in their current phone and sign up for edge. (The promo has to be an option on your account. (late payments, bad credit) will make that disappear.

    Edge= Customers are currently out of contract and can sign up immediately and you do not have to give in a phone to sign up. Same rules apply that you have to pas credit and not have a ton of late payments.

    Only the Metalized Backs have the Logo, The Ballistic Nylon does not. Only Droid will show up on the BN.

    Past Due Can hurt you, But only if it's a common occurrence. Usually if you can Bill to account, You will qualify for Edge.

    How is the speaker? I always forget to ask it. Loud and clear? Too loud on the minimal setting? What's your thought on it?

    Thank you for doing this by the way. It's much appreciated.

    I'm not 100% sure if you would get the $100 off trade in deal if you buy outright. Our systems don't say either way, It doesn't mention anything about Full Retail, So i would just go in and give it a shot.

    Yes, Free Screen replacement will apply even at full price.

    I've seen this happen and Honestly, The problem is with Motorola. They Are supposed to supply Verizon with the code and it takes them forever. I've dealt with this issue several times, I have even called Moto for customers and Moto seems to always say "It can take up to 72 Hours". People should go directly through Moto for Motomaker like i did. Much easier

    Joe,

    Is there a way to know if I qualify for early edge? Tried a fake upgrade to another currently available device and only have outright pricing. No late payments and contract ends 05/25/2015.

    Since I got an S5 it seems like my best option is to pay retail and sell my phone. Otherwise, I'm essentially agreeing to a 2 year payment plan with a $250 or more fee to do so.

    Am I right? If you can't say due to the nature of your job I'll understand.
