Moto Maker is Santa's workshop for your custom-tailored Moto X, exclusive to AT&T
Choose from 18 back colors, custom boot messages, 2 storage sizes, 7 accent colors, 16 unique wallpapers, engraving for the back cover, 2 front colors, the color of your charger and match the in-ear headphones with your Moto X - all this will be available for AT&T customers if they opt for the Moto Maker option upon purchase, instead of just getting the black or white ones in the store.

The way it works is you drag yourself to the nearest store, check out all colors with physical samples in there, pick your looks, and get a redemption card. These come in two versions, for 16 GB or 32 GB of internal memory, and you have to set a contract plan with the sales associate before you pay and take off.

Once home, scratch the redemption card for the PIN, and enter it at Motorola.com/designit, then assemble your Frankenphone with the above options. Alternatively, you can just go to Motomaker.com, and start from scratch, but you won't be able to see how the colors actually look outside of your monitor. Easy-peasy, and Motorols will ship your phone in just a few days, with all the bells and whistles you chose, depending on components availability. If you don't like the end result, you can return it to Moto or exchange it within 14 days for free (30 days in California).


Did we mention headphones? With Motomaker, you can get unique SOL REPUBLIC gear in the headband and cable color that matches your phone's color chosen. Awesome, ain't it? Coming to other carriers later on this year, says Moto.

Something tells me that Motorola offered other carriers this option, but they decided not go with it... like Verizon.

AT&T always has the highest bids for exclusivity. Moto X won't go far because od price on contract and Moto Maker only for AT&T.

All we get is "this year". So, within 4 months. It's kind of a bummer that Moto Maker is a AT&T exclusive. I hope they would allow unlocked buyers to use it as well, but it doesn't seem like it.

I'm assuming you mean until Verizon gets it? I don't know, but knowing them they'll require the "custom engraving" to be a massive Verizon logo that lights up and flashes all sorts of neon colors. Also, backplate color options will be limited to red, black, and a slightly darker red.

Title is misleading, Santa doesn't exist (believe me, I know).

I'm going with the S4 over this because if you can only customize it on at&t, then why sell it on other carrier,and such a dreamcrusher(moto x)

Scratch that, it looks like Phonearena needs to update their website, because Moto Maker is coming to other carriers too.

Hopefully... it would be one horrible move if only AT&T had access.

What's with the exclusivity, Optimus G pro, then Lumia 1020, now this? At least make it Verizon's, some of theirs are GSM factory unlocked.

Exclusive to AT&T... well, that's hello Galaxy Note 3 for me. This device really had nothing aside from the customization options, but other than that, $199.99 2 year contract, no thanks.

90% of the time, if there's any exclusivity involved, it's for AT&T. That's the main reason I stay with them; because they always have the best hardware. The network may suck, but at least I'll look good hitting redial.
