Did I miss something? In another thread, didn't T-Mo say it was not going to be stocking/offering the X? Have they (T-Mo) changed their mind?

T-Mobile will not be selling the Moto X from their own stores (for now), but you can still buy a T-Mobile subsidized Moto X from Motorola's own website through Moto Maker. Kind of weird, but as long as I get customized hardware I couldn't care less about whether it's in stores or not.

Where/How do you get technical support for the T-Mo edition of the X? Like if the hot-spot function no-workie? I doubt a call to T-Mo Tech Support will be terribly helpful, given that they (T-Mo) aren't selling the X.

I'm sure they'll have the usual spot on the online forums for the Moto X for support. I'm sure it'll have it's own product page on T-Mobile site as well, but when you want to buy one it will redirect you to Moto Maker.
